In Mama Africa, despite the fact that Democratic Republic of Congo has Gorillas in the Virunga National Park found Eastern of the Country, half of the World’s Mountain Gorilla population share Uganda and Rwanda as a Home. These endangered species are undoubtly Africa’s major highlight! that have given both countries an annual outstanding draw card of visitors – they make both countries unforgettable and inspiring destinations worthy dreaming.
It is an exciting & humble experience to encounter man’s closest relative – watching them bond, play and eat rest with their family. Guests get a similar, unique and ultimate phenomenal experience whether we track in Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park or in Uganda’s Bwindi impenetrable National Park or Mgahinga Gorilla National Park. However, tracking Mountain Gorillas in Uganda is much possible with much affordable tracking permits compared to Rwanda as well as the good number of Habituated groups in Uganda, placed in the different sectors of Buhoma, Nkuringo, Ruihijia, Rushaga including one habituated family in Mgahinga Gorilla National Park dubbed a Place where ‘’Gold meets Silver’’ (a destination we can find a silverback and a Golden Monkey)
Mountain Gorillas are wild animals that keep roaming the forest thickets and anytime a silverback can decide to separate from the group to make a new family, thus the number of family members may vary depending joiners, exits, new born arrival and death. Because of the Habituation training process to help them get used to visitors, they do not shy away from visitors giving a great opportunity to see the beauty of the thick forest through their dark eyes at close range, however visitors are cautioned to follow responsible rules in order to safeguard their lives and to conserve the endangered species of the Planet.
Uganda also has a special Gorilla Family group available for research and guests who book a habituation experience spend four hours following the mountain Gorillas as they free range in their natural habitat alongside the researchers who are always in position to answer all questions about Mountain Gorillas and Gorilla Habituation Process. This activity is excellent for students, Wildlife Photographers and Bloggers.
