Gorilla trekking is the highlight of visiting Uganda and one of the most memorable wildlife experiences in Africa. Embarking on this once-in-a-lifetime wildlife encounter we will view the highly endangered mountain gorillas in the wild. The guides lead you into the bush, pushing through the undergrowth to track the Bwindi gorillas. This gorilla walk can take up to 6 hours, so a reasonable degree of fitness and a sturdy pair of walking shoes are a must. Take a rain jacket, water and snacks along with you, but be sure to leave nothing behind in the forest.

After our rewarding trek through the jungle, we sit in the forest among the gentle mountain gorillas, listening to them communicating with one another and watching them interact. after return to the lodge.
