Gorilla safaris

January 31, 2023by admin0

Gorilla safaris are one of the most exciting and unique experiences that Uganda has to offer. These safaris allow visitors to see gorillas in their natural habitat and learn about their behavior and conservation.

Uganda is home to half of the world’s mountain gorillas, and it is one of the few places in the world where visitors can see gorillas in the wild. The Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and Mgahinga Gorilla National Park are the two main places in Uganda where gorillas can be found. Both parks offer gorilla trekking safaris where visitors can go on guided walks to see gorillas in their natural habitat.

Gorilla trekking is a challenging but rewarding experience, as visitors have to hike through the rainforest to reach the gorillas. The trek can take anywhere from a few hours to a full day, depending on where the gorillas are located. Once the gorillas are found, visitors are allowed to stay with them for a maximum of one hour.

It is important to note that gorilla trekking is a regulated activity, and only a limited number of permits are available each day. Visitors are required to purchase a permit in advance and should book their safari well in advance to ensure availability. Permits cost $600 and it is recommended to book through a reputable tour operator.

Visitors are also required to follow strict guidelines while on a gorilla safari. They are required to wear masks and maintain a distance of at least 7 meters from the gorillas at all times. Additionally, visitors should not make loud noise or sudden movements, as this can be disruptive to the gorillas.

In addition to gorilla trekking, many safari companies also offer other activities such as bird watching, cultural tours and hiking.

Uganda offers one of the best experiences for Gorilla safaris in the world and it is a once in a lifetime experience that should not be missed. With the help of a reputable tour operator, visitors can ensure they have a safe and memorable gorilla safari experience in Uganda.
