Coming face to face with endangered mountain gorillas in their natural habitat is an experience words simply cannot capture. Unforgettable, humbling, breathtaking – this truly is a lifetime experience.
Less than 900 gorillas remain in the wild, living in the forests bordering Uganda, Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
Purchasing a gorilla trekking permit is not just your ticket to an exhilarating wildlife encounter, but serves as a vital contribution in two major ways:
- Conservation – Funds are used for the management of the National Parks, including armed rangers whose efforts to protect the gorillas have resulted in an increase in the population in recent years.
- Community Upliftment – A percentage of the funds raised are ploughed directly back into the community adjacent to the parks to contribute to their development and improve natural resource management in the region.
Our new package brings you the rare chance to trek gorillas in both Uganda and Rwanda, combined with a safari experience in Queen Elizabeth National Park, home to the most talked about tree climbing lions. This trip deserves top spot on any adventure traveller’s bucket list.
