We not only run luxury, mid range and or budget gorilla trekking tours but our website offers comprehensive and well researched information about gorilla trekking in Uganda and Rwanda. We are fully aware that gorilla trekking is one of the highlights on any East African safari and information on our website will prove useful to you as you prepare for your safari to Uganda or Rwanda.
Mountain Gorilla trekking
We help you choose the best country for gorilla trekking if contacted. You might have heard from those that trekked gorillas in Rwanda or Uganda but our expert opinion on this matter will help you to make the right decision. Gorilla trekking takes place in three African countries of Uganda, Rwanda and Democratic Republic of Congo. Out of these three countries that harbor mountain gorillas, we only operate in Uganda and Rwanda.
If interested in gorilla trekking, please contact us with date, month and year when you propose to come for a gorilla tour. This is very paramount as it will guide us to check available gorilla permits in Rwanda or Uganda. It is prudent that you order and book your gorilla permit upfront to avoid shortage.
