Gorillas!!!

I loved the tracking, the forest, the landscape and of course I will never forget the feeling to meet a gorilla's family!

We heard and saw lots of birds and two types of monkeys. Forest itself was so beautiful. I could have just sit there for hours.

...of course to be next to the gorillas is a great experience, but the trekking was completly ruined ending up in a group of rude italian people(and I am italian): 5 hours of trekking listening to their stuffes about spaghetti and other similar stupidities, shouting all the way(even in front of gorillas) and the guides telling nothing to stop them...the...

We had the most amazing encounter with a gorilla family. The rangers were fantastic and the experience was awesome.

Gorilla Habituation is a new product introduced by the Uganda Wildlife Authority for Gorilla lovers. Gorilla Habituation involves clients spending four hours with the Gorillas. My clients who recently did this activity loved it to bits. The max number of people doing this activity is 4 and depending on the season, you could be two or one person tracking this... More

Gorilla tracking isn't for the faint hearted!the permit costs $600 per person (minimum age 15) in the high season for international visitors, and the forests these gentle giants inhabit are far from anywhere in a remote corner of Uganda and Rwanda. The third location DRC is currently too dangerous due to warring rebel groups! However, if you are like us,... More

Our trek was on New Years day 2017 and what a way to start the year. Our ranger was informative and friendly and showed an extreme love of the gorillas we were to see. We were part of a group of 8 <max allowed> all of whom had had this on their bucket list of things to do. We took... More

There is no doubt the best experience and our main purpose to come to Uganda. Before the hike, you discuss with your guide which group of gorilla will suit you, because it is related to how difficult the track will be. Hire a porter no matter what. 2 kg of a small bag can weight 20kg at the end of... More

We did gorilla trekking at the Rushaga site, and it was pretty amazing. We saw a gorilla family that had two baby gorillas that were extremely active and playful, and we were able to get within a few meters to get great pictures. After about 15 minutes they were on the move and we followed them, with our guides bushwacking... More

We booked a gorilla trek through the tour company, Matoke Tours, in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest as part of a 10 day trip in Uganda and Tanzania. We were a group of 4, two couples, two of us in our early 50's and two of us around 70. Three of us, including our 71 year old friend, did the trek. Before... More
