Gorilla trekking is an out-door activity where tourists are allowed to see mountain gorillas for one hour after purchasing a gorilla permit in Uganda and or Rwanda. On every East African Safari traveller's bucket list is gorilla trekking in the tropical jungles of Uganda and Rwanda. Encounter Africa has been in the forefront of creating unforgettable memories of seeing the mountain gorilla in the last decade (we have reviews to show off) and we celebrate this achievement by continuing to take our travelers through thick, misty, wet and impenetrable jungles and Rwanda's Volcanoes to spend those memorable 60 minutes with the mighty giant cousin and his family.
We specialize in preparing gorilla trekking safaris in Uganda and Rwanda. Check our blog for first hand information on gorilla permits prices and availability, which gorilla family you should track, when is the best time to visit mountain gorillas, what to pack, how to get there and what should be the best choice of accommodation. Take a private or group gorilla safari depending on your budget, include something else on the trip like a classic wildlife safari or take a shorter route through Kigali in Rwanda—choosing the best destination route is quite important for a great gorilla tracking trip.
GORILLA HABITUATION EXPERIENCE
Gorilla Habituation Experience is a new and unique way of spending a great wildlife holiday in the African jungles that offers a fantastic opportunity to spend up to four hours amongst a family of the remarkable mountain gorilla. Rather than an all-to-brief 60 minutes in their company, observe and photograph them interact, play and groom one another at a gentler pace paying the same price you would pay in Rwanda's Volcanoes National Park. This is a one time chance to take part in the valuable task of habituating gorillas to the presence of humans.
There are just two gorilla families that are currently being habituated, in the dense foliage of the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. Trek deep into the trees in search of these sociable creatures, led by highly trained trackers and guides. Pick up the trail of clues that they have left behind as they roam through the forest. After a challenging trek through the green wilderness, eventually reach the family’s location. Approach cautiously, getting close to these powerful yet intelligent creatures.
