3 day private gorilla trekking tour

Half of the world’s surviving mountain gorilla population lay claim to this undulating forest. Every month, hundreds of tourists head to Southwestern Uganda to meet these magnificent creatures. But a trip to this jungle is not just about its famous residents.

You will experience what it is like to hike through an impenetrable forest, navigating through tangled vegetation over steep, slippery valleys and rugged ridges. Also on your way to the gorillas you will come upon hundreds of bird species, chattering monkeys and thousands of butterflies.
