GORILLA TREK SAFARIS - Your once-in-a-lifetime experience

Gorilla Trek Safaris; we typically organize tours and expeditions to observing and experience mountain gorillas in their natural habitat. These safaris usually take place in the forests of Uganda, Rwanda and Congo (DRC), where mountain gorillas are found.

During our gorilla trek safari, we guide participants through the experienced trackers and rangers into the gorilla habitats, where they observe these majestic creatures up close in their natural environment. The experience often involves hiking through dense forests, sometimes for several hours, to reach the Mountain gorillas’ location. Once the gorillas are found, visitors usually spend a limited amount of time observing them from a safe distance to minimize disturbance to the animals. We also combine most of our Gorilla Tours with other Safari Adventure hence why we are called GORILLA › TREK › SAFARIS Because we we give a round experience of what you can expect on an Africa safari experience and More.

Gorilla trek safaris are often considered a once-in-a-lifetime experience due to the rarity of mountain gorillas and the unique opportunity they offer to witness these incredible creatures in their natural habitat. Additionally, these safaris often contribute to the conservation efforts aimed at protecting gorilla populations and their habitats.

Gorilla Trek Safaris in Rwanda: An Unforgettable Wildlife Experience

While game drives are fantastic, an African safari remains incomplete without embarking on Gorilla Trek Safaris. Picture yourself hiking through dense rainforests, coming face-to-face with wild gorillas in Africa. These encounters are truly special and once-in-a-lifetime experiences. These magnificent creatures exhibit behaviors strikingly similar to our own.

Is gorilla trekking ethical? Absolutely. It’s not only an incredible adventure but also a vital means of generating funds for gorilla conservation in developing countries. The money raised helps protect these primates from poachers and contributes to essential park infrastructure. When local communities understand the benefits of gorilla trekking, they are less likely to harm these remarkable animals.

Mountain gorilla trekking is particularly valuable in countries where it’s possible. Visitors to East Africa often combine gorilla sightings with other activities like golden monkey trekking, birding, mountain hiking, chimpanzee trekking, or even paying homage at Dian Fossey’s grave. During a gorilla trek, only eight visitors per day are allowed to visit each gorilla family out of the approximately 28 available groups. Gorilla permits are in high demand and are issued on a first-come, first-served basis. Booking early is essential to secure your permit.

Wondering about the best time to see gorillas in Africa? While gorilla tracking is a year-round activity, the period just after the rains provides an ideal adventure. Depending on your fitness level and preferences, you can choose gorilla families that live near the starting points for tracking or venture deeper into the forest. Our carefully designed packages offer silverback gorilla safaris in Uganda, Congo, and Rwanda. If you’re looking for a shorter experience, consider our 2-day Rwanda gorilla tour.”
