Gorilla Trekking in Uganda

There are about 1300 mountain gorillas remaining on earth. The majority live in the Virunga Ranges that are located Rwanda, Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo.  However Uganda is home to more that half this population some of which call Mgahinga Gorilla Park home while others live in the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest of Uganda.

Mountain Gorillas Uganda

Gorillas live a wild existence, far from human reach. However, a handful of groups have been habituated and can be tracked and observed by small numbers of visitors under the watchful eyes UWA wildlife rangers.

Where to see gorillas in Uganda

Uganda is a larger country to explore than Rwanda, and about 8 hours of driving to reach the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest from Entebbe, it broken up with an overnight stay halfway at Lake Mburo.

Uganda Gorilla Families

There are more habituated gorilla groups in Bwindi and none tend to be found near to the park entrance. Unlike in DR Congo or Rwanda, Gorilla Trekking in Uganda will give you a chance to see more gorilla families and groups.

The groups are called the Mubare, Habinyanja, Rushegura and Nkuringo, Mukiza , Kyaguriro  and range in size from 10 to 20 individuals, each with one or two silverbacks.

The landscape in Bwindi means that a tourist sometimes start your trek at the top of the hills, descend on foot into the valley to see the gorillas, and then climb up the slopes at the end of the day, which can be more tiring.

In our opinion Gorilla Trekking inn Uganda tends to be a harder option than Rwanda.
