The population of mountain gorillas greatly declined since their discovery in the early 1990’s, this decline was caused by poaching, civil war, destruction of their habitats. There are approximately 900 mountain gorillas left in the world which are found within the Bwindi impenetrable forest and other forests found along the Virunga mountain ranges which stretch across the three countries of Rwanda, Congo and Uganda. Many travelers describe gorilla trekking as a once in a lifetime experience in other words the ultimate wildlife encounter in Africa. This is attributed to the fact that the mountain gorillas are at the verge of extinction, and also because gorilla trekking is a physically demanding activity in which you have to hike the rainforest for between 2 to 6 hours in search of the gorillas. The biodiversity, rugged terrain and beautiful surrounding landscapes around these forests make the gorilla trek worthwhile. At Gorilla Uganda Safaris we organize gorilla treks to Volcanoes national park in Rwanda, Bwindi impenetrable forest and the Mgahinga Gorilla Park in Uganda and the Virunga national park in the Democratic Republic of Congo. We also offer lowland gorilla trekking tours to the Kahuzi-Biega national park in Congo.
Gorilla trekking in Uganda is a very adventurous, captivating and memorable activity. The Ugandan mountain gorillas can be tracked either in the Bwindi impenetrable forest or the Mgahinga gorilla national park. The ultimate Uganda gorilla safari lasts 3 days, but can be extended if you want to savor the other interesting activities Uganda has to offer such as game viewing, chimpanzee trekking, adventure sports in other parks. The Uganda Gorilla permits cost $600 in the high season and $450 in the low season months of May, April and November. Gorilla trekking in Uganda lasts between 1-8 hours, in which you trek through the dense rain forests in a quest for the great apes which are constantly moving around the forests going about their daily activities.
Uganda has 12 habituated gorilla families with a maximum of 8 people assigned to trek each Gorilla Family per day. Some of the gorilla families in the Bwindi impenetrable forest include Mubale Gorilla Group, Habinyanja Gorilla Group, Rushegura Gorilla Group, Oruzogo Gorilla Group, Bitukura Gorilla Group, Nshongi Gorilla Group, Mishaya Gorilla Group, Kahungye Gorilla Group, Busingye Gorilla Group, Bweza Gorilla Group, Nkuringo Gorilla Group while Mgahinga has only the Nyakagezi Gorilla Group.
While on a trip to Rwanda, Gorilla trekking should always be in your to do list. The Rwanda Gorillas live in Volcanoes National Park (PNV) which is only a 2 hour drive from Kigali, Rwanda’s capital city. Rwanda gorilla tours are favorable for travelers who have little time in the country for example 1, 2 or 3 days. There are 7 habituated mountain gorilla families in Rwanda which are available for visitors to track. The search for the gorillas is very fascinating, the climb through the thick bamboo forests requires a lot of determination and physical fitness. You meet the gorillas after 1 to 5 hours of trekking, the 1 hour you spend with the Gorillas is therefore very rewarding as it is a sign of an accomplished adventure! While in the forest, you will see and listen to different singing birds, you may see the golden monkeys, the surrounding scenery is also a beauty to savor.
