Uganda Gorilla Tours

Uganda Gorilla Safari

A Uganda Gorilla Safari is among the best wildlife adventures one can ever take. Go on a guided trek in Bwindi Forest which is home to mountain gorillas and other mammals. It is also home to several bird species of which some are endemic to only this park.

What is a Uganda Gorilla Safari?

A gorilla Safari is an expedition leading you to see gorillas. Therefore a Uganda Gorilla tour is one that involves visiting the mountain gorillas in either Bwindi or Mgahinga gorillas parks. Any expedition that involves seeing gorillas whether it takes to specifically Bwindi or other sights in Uganda is viable to be called a gorilla tour.

Why are Uganda Gorilla Safaris so unique?

True, a gorilla safari is not your typical wildlife safari. Gorillas unlike other African animals are not many.  Mountain gorillas only live in Uganda, Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Mountain gorillas do not survive in captivity which means that all gorillas you see in zoos are lowland gorillas.

Further more, Uganda has two locations to see mountain gorillas. You can see these gentle apes in either Bwindi Impenetrable Forest or Mgahinga Gorilla Park. The choice is yours.

In addition to that, Mountain Gorillas are endangered. With about 1031 individuals surviving in the world,  Uganda is home to largest number of mountain gorillas. You can as well see these Apes in the Virunga mountains. This is where the three parks, Volcanoes, Virunga and Mgahinga Gorilla parks lie. It is important to note that more than half live in Bwindi Forest. In fact, this impenetrable forest has the highest concentration of mountain gorillas in the world.
