The forest also can sometimes be wet, muddy, and uncomfortable, but the sheer thrill in coming across a habituated family group of gorillas, dominated by a giant male Silverback, more than outweighs any difficulty.

An adult male can weigh up to 220kg and reach 6 feet in height but gorillas are placid and gentle; watching their movements are like seeing a mirror image of yourself. Contact time with gorillas is limited to one hour but coming face to face with a family of gorillas is indeed a life-changing experience that will be etched on your mind forever.

Visas for Uganda – do you need a visa to enter/tour Uganda?: Uganda entry, exit, and visa requirements

Passport

Any world traveler interested in a Uganda safari or a Uganda tour is required to be in possession of a valid passport issued by the respective country of origin. Uganda immigration Authorities require that the passport copy should be 6 months valid and must have at least one page where the stamp can be put.

Regarding the citizens of the East African Community, it can be noted that they do not require passports to enter Uganda. They can travel under the admissible temporary document and use their national identification cards for identification.

18 Days Uganda Adventure Safari − GORILLA TREKKING TIPS

  • Carry plenty of water and some quick calories. The trek is relatively tiresome.
  • Put on strong hiking shoes/boots
  • Wear a long-sleeved shirt/t-shirt, thick trousers.
  • Strong gardening gloves for protection against stinging plants are also recommended
  • Bring a warm sweater/fleece as it is often cold at the outset
  • Carry a rain jacket or poncho since it can rain at any time in the tropical rainforest of Bwindi
  • It is also a good idea to have sunscreen and sunglasses
