Gorilla Trekking

Best Gorilla Trekking Tours and Safari Packages

Discover the gorilla trekking safari of your dreams in the magical, cloud-draped mountains of Rwanda and Uganda. Watch in awe as these endangered creatures emerge from the trees and approach near enough to touch, interacting with each other in their natural jungle habitat.

You can enjoy gorilla trekking tours in Volcanoes National Park, Rwanda or Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, Uganda. Uganda also offers chimpanzee trekking in Kibale National Forest and Big 5 safaris in Queen Elizabeth National Park.

The best part? Your gorilla trekking safari directly benefits endangered mountain gorillas, as well as the local communities surrounding them.
