gorilla-trekking in ugandaUganda gorilla safaris saw their inception in 1993 when the Mubare gorilla family was formerly introduced for tracking following two years of habituation in the Buhoma sector in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest.
The gorilla safari tours in Uganda were then realized as cash cows after great amounts of dollars that were generated in the subsequent years. This prompted the government to habituate more gorilla groups that would add value to conservation and promote appreciation of these species among people that would enroll themselves for gorilla tracking encounter.
Apparently, the gorilla trekking safaris in Uganda are conducted with in the four regions of Bwindi namely; Buhoma with its three habituated gorilla families, Ruhija with also three gorilla groups, Rushaga with five gorilla families and Nkuringo with one gorilla family. The Mgahinga Gorilla National Park which adjoins the greater Virunga massif also has got one gorilla family called Nyakagezi that has been habituated to be encountered by travellers on Uganda gorilla tours.
