Luxury Uganda Gorilla Trekking Experience.

In Uganda, gorilla trekking is done in two national parks: Bwindi Impenetrable and Mgahinga Gorilla National Parks. Both sites begin gorilla trekking early in the morning with a briefing on the laws and regulations to be followed throughout the journey.

Mountain gorilla trekking takes between 30 minutes and 7 hours in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and Mgahinga Gorilla National Park, depending on where the gorillas are found because they prefer to migrate from one location to another in search of food.

During the trek, you will be able to see various bird species, other primates, and once the mountain gorillas are found, you will be allowed to spend one hour with them in their natural habitat, where you will be able to learn more about their behaviors, habits, and watch them carry out their daily activities such as feeding, breastfeeding, and grooming young ones, as well as take photos and record videos to show people back home after the safari.
