Gorilla Tracking Safaris

No Safari in East Africa is quite complete without visiting to see the silverback gorillas of Uganda, Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo. A gorilla safari in Africa takes you hiking through jungle rain forests to meet face to face with a family of habituated mountain gorillas. Headed by a silverback gorilla (male eldest gorilla with a silverback), the experience of watching gorillas is a unique and mostly a once in a life time experience offering you a personal and close up encounter with a groups that typically looks like an ordinary human family. In the countries where gorillas are located, gorilla tourism is the largest tourist’s attraction with 90% of tourists coming for gorilla tours. With just a limited number of gorilla groups, visitors are restricted to only 8 people per day following tracks of a single gorilla family – gorilla permits have a high competition, sold at first come first serve basis and hence, visitors have to book early and secure their gorilla passes.

The choice of which gorilla family to track depends on how fit you are. Its very important to be realistic with your fitness as there are families situated near the starting points while others are higher and deeper in the forest.
