Gorilla tracking is one of the best Uganda safaris and most exciting activities you can have on any African safari. It is such a humbling experience to encounter the majestic Silverback Gorilla (s) and their families in the forested and misty mountain ranges of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and the Virunga Massif. Gorilla trekking safaris in Uganda or Rwanda rank as one of the world’s premier and most rewarding wildlife encounters.

Trekking through the misty jungle of Africa is an exquisite moment that anyone would ever dream of. An eventual encounter during a Gorilla trekking safari, with these shy and aggressive giant creatures, -that were once human prey and now Africa’s most prestigious wildlife- is emotional, grand and a moment long to remember after your African holiday. Avens Travel World is a Destination Management Company that will meticulously arrange the best Uganda Gorilla tracking safaris for both private and group travels.

Mountain Gorillas are some of the world’s endangered species, with their population currently standing at 1’063- as of census results released December 2019 in Kampala; a number indicating steady increase and positive conservation efforts; to realize this, Gorilla trekking and gorilla habituation experience were introduced to raise funds to support the noble cause-these rank as the best Uganda safaris as well as trekking in Rwanda. Mountain Gorillas are members of the world’s Great Apes with the others being the Chimpanzees, Bonobos and Orangutans.

These Gorillas are in two groups; one in Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable Gorilla tracking National Park found in the Southwestern part of the country, with a population of 459 Individuals living in up to 50 groups and 13 solitary individuals.

The second group is found in the misty volcanos of the Virunga massif, a physical landform that spreads across three National Parks in three countries that is; Mgahinga National Park in Uganda, Volcanos National Park in Rwanda and Virunga National Park in Democratic Republic of Congo and the Virunga area protects about 604 Individuals.

A Gorilla family/group ranges from 5 or 8 to 30 individuals, composed of; Silverback Gorilla (s) with a dominant one, Black-backs, and fully-grown females with their off-springs. The habitats of these sought-after wildlife creatures, characterized by steep and slippery terrain offer sheer adventure to trackers. The Gorilla trekking parks often receive rainfall and this explains the slippery nature of the landscape, and the Gorillas usually inhabit the upper slopes of these mountainous parks, therefore; it requires some good level of physical fitness to go Gorilla trekking. The ever chilly weather and challenging terrain offers unrivaled ambience, and experience to those seeking to meet these interesting humans in the wilds with whom we share over 98% of our hereditary code (DNA).

On your Gorilla tracking safari, you will visit one of the habituated groups in Bwindi or Volcanos National Park, and for conservation purpose each family is tracked once a day by a maximum of 8 visitors in a group. Our Gorilla trekking safaris range from short tours or treks of 1-3days of only Gorilla trekking or multiday tours combined with other activities like Game viewing, rafting, and birding among others. During your Uganda Safaris, you will have an experience you will always wish to share with your peers or family once you take part in a Gorilla tracking safari.
