3 DAYS ULTIMATE GORILLA TREKKING SAFARI

3 DAYS ULTIMATE GORILLA TREKKING SAFARI

There are trips that are done once in a lifetime and offer incredible memories that last forever with us. This trip takes you to the Bwindi Impenetrable Gorilla Park that is home to half of the world’s mountain gorilla population only found in the eastern central region of Africa. The forest is also home to a number of other wildlife species such as chimpanzees, forest elephants, buffalos and much more wildlife.

The Bwindi Impenetrable Gorilla Park is blessed with four tracking stations where tourists start their ultimate journey into the jungle to meet the mountain gorillas. The stations are Buhoma (4 Gorilla families), Ruhija (5 Gorilla families), Rushaga (6 Gorilla families) and Nkuringo (2 Gorilla familes). The forest is also next to the Mgahinga national park on the boarders of Uganda, Rwanda and Congo where two other mountain gorilla families are located and also open to visitation.

The Bwindi Gorilla Forest is also home to a number of birds that offer amazing jungle sounds that keep you awake while in the jungle. This offers more opportunity to do activities such as bird watching, nature walks and community visits in the villages neighbouring the national park.
