For many seeing a gorilla is top of their bucket list. Both Rwanda and Uganda offers the “Gorillas in the Mist” experience.
Gorillas are ground-dwelling and live in groups of 6-12 with the oldest and largest silver-back leading a family of females, their young and younger males called black-backs. Gorillas are shy animals that are most active during the day.
Gorilla tracking in Rwanda is often described as “life changing” and with good reason. With only an estimated 880 Gorillas left in the world, to see these gentle creatures in their natural habitat is a truly unique moment. Gorillas make their homes in and among the bamboo-covered slopes of the Virunga Mountains in the Volcanoes National Park in northern Rwanda. Hikes in the mountains can last anywhere from 30 minutes to 4 hours + depending on the family allocated to your group and their location.

Uganda has two parks where they have been habituated for human visits that is; the Mgahinga Gorilla National Park and Bwindi Impenetrable National Park; which harbor over half of the remaining world mountain gorillas.
