Gorilla Trekking Holidays

Numbering fewer than 700, the endangered mountain and lowland gorillas in Africa represent the ultimate in game viewing. Mainly due to the fact that these magnificent and majestic creatures are only found in a handful of locations (Uganda, Rwanda and The Congo). To get the opportunity to see these striking creatures, the journey will take you through misty forests and breathtaking routes - but to be one of the few people who will get to see them, is a once in a lifetime experience.

Rangers who are knowledgeable in tracking gorillas will locate a gorilla family. After which you will get an hour to interact with them and no more. You can watch young gorillas playfully interact with their parents, while a silverback looks straight at you!!

You will need permits to view the gorillas, and we can help you organise these for you. These permits though expensive, go towards maintaining the park and wildlife. The trek requires some stamina and a degree of luck, but you will be rewarded with an unforgettable and magical encounter with these wonderful primates.
