Where To Do Gorilla Trekking In Africa In Uganda Rwanda & Congo
Uganda Gorilla Safaris/Gorilla Trekking In Uganda Bwindi Impenetrable National Park
Uganda Gorilla trekking tours and safaris are carried out in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and Mgahinga Gorilla National Park located in southwestern Uganda. Bwindi National Park has about 459 Mountain Gorillas, distributed in 19 habituated gorilla families with 1 group still under habituation and Mgahinga Gorilla Park has one habituated gorilla group which is opened for tourism purposes. Part of the fun of tracking gorillas here is trying to follow them through the dense foliage. You can also get to see other primate species and also undertake a cultural walk to encounter the rare local Batwa community who were the traditional owners of the land occupied by the two parks before they were pushed away.
Uganda Gorilla Safaris Rules & Advise (Mountain Gorilla Trekking Regulations In Bwindi Impenetrable & Mgahinga National Parks)

Rwanda Gorilla Tours/Gorilla Trekking In Rwanda Volcanoes National Park
Rwanda has one park in the northwestern part of the country encompassing its share of the mountain gorilla population i.e. the Virunga National Park or Parc National des Volcans (PNV). The Mountain Gorilla families/groups in Rwanda’s Volcanoes national park are separated into two (2) i.e. those for study or research purposes that are only visited by scientists plus researchers only. Among these include Beetsme and Pablo’s Shida’s which have the highest number of gorillas. Currently (2015), there are ten (10) Mountain gorilla groups/Families habituated for tourism purposes, and a maximum of eight (8) individual visitors are allowed to visit each habituated gorilla family.
The list of the ten habituated gorilla families/groups that are for tourism purposes in Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park include the Susa Gorilla group, Karinsimbi Gorilla group, Sabinyo family, Hirwa Gorilla Family, Amahoro Gorilla Group, Bwengye Gorilla family, Group 13 (the Agasha group) and the Kwitonda Gorilla, group. Ugenda Gorilla Family, Umubano Gorilla Group. With a gorilla permit costing US$ 1500 per person per trek, part of your contribution goes to the conservation of these critically endangered ape species- mountain gorillas. Read more..
Congo Gorilla Tours/Gorilla Trekking In Congo In The Virunga National Park
The DRC also has a section of the Virunga Mountains Park called the Parc National des Virunga or Virunga National Park where gorilla trekking in Congo is done. But the gorilla populations in this park have suffered a major setback because several Mountain gorillas were brutally hacked to death in 2007. However, in 2012 census results showed that the mountain gorillas were doing better than expected despite the civil war raging around them in large part due to the amazing efforts of rangers putting their lives on the line at Virunga National Park.
The insecurity in DR Congo makes Rwanda the land of a thousand hills and Uganda –the Pearl of Africa to be the only two recognized safe and very secure countries where travelers in the whole world can trek the endangered ape species of the mountain gorillas (Gorilla Berengei Berengei) in their serene surroundings.
Gorilla trekking safaris in Rwanda, Uganda, or Congo offer a rewarding lifetime experience, but you are not guaranteed to see Mountain gorillas because they are wildlife that keeps moving. The trek to where the gorilla groups live takes you through very dense vegetation, up steep slopes, and can last several hours (2-8hours) depending on the movement of the apes.
The dense vegetation is filled with burning and stinging nettles, so wearing gloves, waterproof walking boots; long-sleeved shirts/trousers is a good idea. Red ants are also common, so wear long socks to tuck your trousers into. Gorillas move around so they aren’t all that easy to track. The gorillas you’ll be meeting are habituated to humans and this gives an account as to why you are able to get quite close to them.
