Gorilla Habituation Experience 2023-2024 – Spend more hours with mountain Gorillas in the wild
Gorilla habituation experience 2023-2024- was introduced in 2014 by Uganda Wildlife Authority and this is done is the Rushaga region of Bwindi impenetrable National Park. All those interested in the habituation experience pay $1500 per experience and one gorilla family namely Bikingi gorilla group with 14 members is available for the gorilla habituation experience in Bwindi.
The experience gives tourists more time with mountain gorillas (four hours) as compared to normal gorilla trekking that is restricted to one hour, it is true that gorilla trekking can take three quarters of the day but this involves the trek itself but the actual time spent with mountain gorillas is one hour. With the gorilla habituation experience, tourists move together with the researchers/those who habituate the gorillas. The experience is likely to attract more tourists as they get to spend more time with mountain gorillas as compare to those doing gorilla trekking. Should expect to visit semi- habituated mountain gorillas that can decide to hide, behave in a strange manner and for this, the experience can be stopped as per the advice of the researchers, we book gorilla habituation permits and you can contact us at Great Adventure Safaris for detailed information about gorilla habituation experience 2023-2024.
Gorilla habituation can take between two to three years to be completed and during this time, researchers keep on visiting the unidentified gorilla group on daily basis. They get to learn more about the individual gorilla and behavior, in the long run, each individual gorilla is given a name. Once the researchers are sure that these mountain gorillas are ready to be trekked, they introduce a mock exercise, where some few people who may include scientists, journalists start visiting it. When a gorilla group passes the mock exercise, it is opened for trekking.
Bwini impenetrable National Park has around 19 habituated mountain gorilla families in all the four gorilla trekking sectors but only one family is available for the gorilla habituation experience namely Bikingi gorilla group with 14 semi-habituated mountain gorillas in Rushaga sector, southern part of Bwindi, and it is for this reason that gorilla habituation is done in the south only.contact us now for more details about gorilla habituation experience 2023-2024
