Where Best To Trek Mountain Gorillas in The Wild?

Rwanda Safari Trip Advice

Mountain Gorillas are very rare primates on this planet earth with just under 900 of them left in the wild world over, only found in the Virunga volcano conservation area of 3 countries of Uganda, Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Wild Gorilla trekking safari mostly happens in Uganda and Rwanda considerably more than the Democratic Republic of Congo, but also embarking on a Congo Gorilla Safari to see the low land Gorillas in the wild is one of a kind adventure experience.

Generally, the most famous parks to see Mountain Gorillas in the wild are Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda, Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and Mgahinga National Park in south western Uganda. The Gorilla Trekking Safari is almost comparable to none in these national parks.

A portion of the mountain Gorilla families have been habituated and familiarized with people that enable human communications during visits deep in the thick forests to see endangered primates. Gorillas have not been changed or adjusted in their natural conduct or behavior but rather trained.

Gorilla Tracking Safaris

Guides and trackers escort a small group of just 8 people into the forests track for Gorillas.

Once the gorillas have been located you can only spend maximum 1 hour with them each single day.

While you are never totally assured to see these gorillas, the experienced guides that accompany you have mastered the art of tracking different gorilla families down and chances are very high that will encounter a family of mountains gorillas.

Gorilla trekking is profoundly limited in order not to tamper with the natural behaviors of these gorillas and eventually the main purpose for gorilla trekking in Uganda and Rwanda which is to promote their conservation and secure their pristine habitats and all this is done to increase gorilla numbers in the wild.

Of recent Rwanda’s annual Gorilla naming ceremony was introduced and as a way to strengthen mountain gorilla conservation and pull more visitors into Rwanda Gorilla Tracking tours.

While you still not sure where best to trek Gorillas in Africa, here is your answer and the choice is ultimately yours to whether to go for a Uganda Gorilla Safari or opt for Rwanda Gorilla Safari or even make more interesting by making cross boarder Gorilla Safari tours in both Rwanda and Uganda.
