Gorilla tracking: An incredible experience!

Views: 693 Visited: Dec 2015 Reviewed: Jan 13, 2016

Going on a gorilla trek in a natural UNESCO Heritage site is what makes Bwindi Impenetrable National park a special experience and standing out. Uganda has 12 habituated gorilla families from which you track gorillas from. This has reduced on pressure from clients who in early days would struggle to secure a permit for the trek.

Gorilla trek in Bwindi can be done from any of the four locations: Buhoma (norther side), Ruhija (eastern side), Nhsongi & Nkuringo (southern side), with each starting point giving you different scenic experiences.

You can get the best gorilla photo moments during the wet season of April, May & Nov 2013 when gorilla permits are discounted to $450. You save on $150 from the current price of $600.

Gorilla tracking is a year-round activity, so you can consider your next Africa safari to include gorillas at Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, Uganda.
