Mountain Gorilla Safaris

With about 700 mountain gorillas left in the world, spending time with these gentle creatures in their natural habitat is something only a limited number of people will ever do. Guided groups of up to eight visitors trek daily to spend around an hour with a family of gorillas. In Rwanda you drive a half day from the city of Kigali before reaching the start of your trek. In Uganda a nine hour drive from Kampala takes you to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest where the treks begin. Permits are required for each gorilla trek and the fees charged help maintain tourism within the local area and help sustain the gorillas natural environment.

Our relationship with the best operator in this region and our solid overlanding partnership with Africa Travel Co enables us to have an excellent success rate for obtaining gorilla permits. We offer a range of accommodation styles, from camping to five star lodges, so that travellers on all budgets have this once in a lifetime opportunity to gaze at a family of gorillas.
