Gorilla Trekking in Uganda, Rwanda, and Congo Gorilla Tours
These Gorilla trekking safaris go to prime Gorilla territory including Uganda, Rwanda, and DR Congo, so you have the best chance of seeing these amazing animals up close. Gorilla safaris to Africa are determined by the numbers of mountain gorillas in the wild that has dwindled in the past while and much is now been done to stop the populations from disappearing altogether through the conservation of the gorillas in various national parks of Volcanoes National Park, Virunga national park, Bwindi impenetrable national park & Maghinga national park located in the virunga mountains. Gorilla tourism is playing a huge part in the protection of the gorillas with the money from fees of gorilla permits helping to pay for greater protection.
Gorilla safaris in Africa have taken on new meaning in recent years with the realization that we are slowly destroying the habitats of species and in turn destroying the species themselves. Gorilla groups that have been habituated to human presence by researchers provide a unique look into the life of one of our closest relatives in the animal world. The few remaining mountain gorillas in the wild can be found in some areas in the mountains of the Albertine Rift or the western rift of the Great Rift Valley. A hike into this wilderness in Uganda, Rwanda and the Democratic republic of congo to seek them out is part of this special adventure.
A gorilla safari in the beautiful mountains and forests of Uganda is a once-in-a-lifetime experience and one of the top five safaris on the continent. Marvel at one of Africa’s rarest creatures as they go on with their doings, seemingly oblivious to human presence.
Best time for an Africa Gorilla safari
The Mountain & Eastern lowland gorillas can be viewed year round but it is advisable to avoid the rainy seasons as the paths can be very muddy and slippery. The two rainy seasons are March – April, and October – November. The best months for gorilla trekking would be January – February, and June – September.
