Overview – Gorilla Trekking Safari in Uganda – Gorilla Tracking Tour in Uganda

Bwindi Impenetrable National Park in the south west positioned with in the rolling highlands of Kigezi features a minimum population of 400 mountain gorillas and a count of 10 gorilla groups have been habituated for human encounter. These gorilla families are spread in four gorilla trekking regions of Bwindi as follows; Buhoma in the north features three gorilla groups namely Mubare, Habinyanja and Rushegura, Ruhija in the east features three gorilla groups of Oruzogo, Bitukura and Kyagurilo, Rushaga in the south features five gorilla families of Mishaya, Nshongi, Bweza, Kahungye and Busingye and eventually Nkuringo in the south west with one gorilla family called Nkuringo.

Besides Bwindi, Mgahinga Gorilla National Park to the south western tip of Uganda sheltering the three of the eight Virunga Volcanoes is part of the Virunga massif that supports 480 mountain gorillas. One gorilla family called Nyakagyezi is habituated in Mgahinga and can be encountered from both Ntebeko Visitor Center and the Muhabura base.

This puts the gorilla permits at a total of 104 in the two destinations and the ongoing habituation of additional two gorilla families in Bwindi namely Bushaho and Bikingi will bring additional 16 gorilla permits. This puts the future of gorilla safaris in Uganda both at present and in the future in positivity.

Prime Uganda Safaris and Tours Ltd is dedicated to arrange an affordable gorilla safari in Uganda without by all means compromising the professional standards and quality of experience.

Cars available for hire

Travel in Uganda during Uganda safaris is comfortable when travelling with us in our 4×4 safari Land cruisers and Safari Vans. The major routes connecting to various parts of the country are tarmacked. Murram roads then connect from the nearby towns where the tarmac stops linking to the Uganda safari destinations. These roads can be rough at times. However, the efforts are being made to replace the old roads with the new ones. Because of the varying landscape and the nature of the connecting murram roads at times, it is not advisable to drive yourself for the first time. Prime Uganda Safaris has expert driver guides who offer the themed interpretation and take you through the challenging road sections carefully and safely as they have the expertise in this. Our Uganda safari vehicles all with 4WD feature the strength to negotiate the challenging landscapes including the Kigezi highlands and Karamoja landscapes. This is a lovely attempt that will offer you a safe and trusted leisure and educational life time experience on Uganda safaris exploring the Pearl of Africa in detail.
