High-impact, adrenalin-pumping, truly off-the-beaten-track.Immerse yourself in the African wilderness separated only by canvas like an explorer of old!! Possibly the ultimate way to experience Africa. Get under the skin of the world’s most exciting continent through in-depth encounters with the local communities.
For most travelers, trekking the Gorillas ranks among one of the absolute highlights of a trip. Of all Africa’s wildlife encounters little can match the experience that is gorilla trekking. And given that these face-to-face encounters take place in only a few locations and involve animals quite literally on the brink of extinction, gorilla trekking is quite rightly considered, if not a life-changing experience, then at the very least a once-in-a-lifetime one. The spine-tingling feeling that you get being so near to one of our closest relatives is hard to describe!!
Mountain Gorillas are one of the world’s most endangered apes and it is estimated that there are only 720 (approximately) left throughout the world. Almost half of these can be found in Uganda, as well as populations in Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
