Mountain Gorilla Safaris Tours have seen a spiking interest in African safari travellers in the recent decade. Visitors that have had this experience have testified that no other wildlife encounter in Africa matches the astounding experience of spending time face-to-face with Africa’s Mountain Gorillas. Gorilla tracking takes place in a handful of far-flung East Africa jungle locations, adding a layer of exotic adventure to African Gorilla safaris that is hard to match on any other itinerary. The fact that Mountain Gorillas as a species are endangered and treks are a highly restricted activity, encountering wild Gorillas is considered an once-in-a-lifetime travel experience. To watch a family of mountain Gorillas relaxing in their lush forest home is an awe-inspiring privilege and a memory you would take away and remember forever.
Gorillas live in the tropical rainforest jungles of East Africa and nowhere else. Meaning Gorillas are wild and would not tolerate the presence of humans. Thanks to the great research work of Dian Fossey on Mountain Gorillas in 1966, Gorilla habituation was introduced.
Gorilla tracking is a tourist activity done in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and Mgahinga Gorilla National Parks of Uganda and Volcanoes National Park of Rwanda as well as Virunga National Park in the Democratic Republic of Congo. In order to track Mountain Gorillas one must have obtained a Gorilla permit. Park rangers start off to search of the Gorillas every day, before trackers start their hike to the forest. This one reason why we say seeing the Gorillas in the forest is 99% chances.
Uganda Wildlife Authority is a government body in charge of all Uganda National Parks and this is where Gorilla permits are only issued to allow paying participants join in the Gorilla tracking, where you spend one hour in the presence of Africa’s Mountain Gorillas which start counting at the time you meet the Gorillas in the jungle. Such a once in a lifetime experience has been described by many as unmatched in all Africa safari activities.
