GORILLA TRACKING SAFARIS IN UGANDA & RWANDA
Uganda hosts more than half of the last endangered mountain gorillas in the two national parks on the southwestern frontier and is the best destination for gorilla trekking tours.

Impenetrable National Park, an isolated swath on the rugged Rift Valley slopes and Mgahinga National Park, on the slopes of the Virunga Mountains.
Most tourists that visit Uganda journey to the remote southwestern region to spend a night in one of the forests situated lodges on the edge of the park and make it early to one of the five trailheads to join the small groups of trekkers on a half-day adventure excursion. It’s been said
by countless travellers that the experience of locking eyes with a wild gorilla and recognising our very own similarities is unmatched by any jungle experience in Africa. Gorilla trekking is an adventure that should make your summer adventure bucket list for this year.
Uganda offers two distinct gorilla experiences. The regular guided gorilla trekking excursion allows visitors to spend one hour with a human-habituated gorilla family and the Gorilla Habituation Experience which offers visitors an opportunity to spend at least four hours with a semi-habituated troop in the company of primatologists and researchers. The former is a popular choice with most adventurers and costs $700 for a trekking permit, and the Habituation experience permit costs $1500 per person.
Gorilla trekking permits are quite expensive because of the ecotourism effort involved in human- habituating gorillas, protecting them from poachers and diseases and maintaining their natural habitat. Gorilla tourism has given Africa’s great apes the hope to survive alongside growing human populations and intrusion on their habitats. Gorilla tourism is the single primary revenue source for conserving these endangered primates that are about 1000 individuals left in the world. This therefore means that your gorilla trekking tour in Uganda is ethical and is a sustainable travel activity.
Sail Adventures Uganda has been a significant contributor to gorilla conservation since 2017 through our private and tailor-made gorilla trekking tours. Our gorilla safaris are well selected with the best routes to maximise Uganda’s incredible tourist attractions, chimpanzee trekking in Kibale, big-game viewing game drives, boat safaris, bird watching, nature walks, and hiking adventures.

Your trackers will find them by following a trail of knuckle prints, dung, and half-digested fruit and allow tourists to observe them from a distance, avoiding loud noise, sudden movement, standing, shaking branches, and worst of all, staring at them.
