Gorilla Trekking

Gorilla Trekking In Uganda is a must-do activity for anyone visiting this incredible country. The walks are relatively short and the gorillas are so close that you can touch them. Of course, never attempt to mount or handle any of these gentle giants without experienced personnel, but the view from atop one is truly unforgettable.

There are two types of gorilla trekking in Uganda: one is in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, and the other is in Kibale Forest National Park. Both parks are within the borders of Uganda and have been declared as UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

I will focus on the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, which is much larger than Kibale Forest National Park. Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is the largest national park in Uganda, covering an area of 331 km2. It is also the home of the mountain gorillas.

The park is located in Western Uganda, about 540 km south of Kampala, the capital city of Uganda located in Kanungu District. The park is bordered by Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

The best time to visit the park is between April and October. During the rainy season, the trails become muddy and difficult to follow.

I will be covering the activities in the park such as gorilla tracking, but I will be discussing some of the things to do and see outside the park.

Activities to do in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park

This is the most popular activity in the park. There are several companies that offer gorilla tracking. Prices vary depending on the number of people and the time of year.

The park is home to many different species of birds. Many of these species can be found in the park year round.

The trails in the park are suitable for mountain biking. Unquestionably, the most popular trails are the ones in the lower section of the park.

Hiking in the park is a good way to get away from it all. The park is a beautiful place to hike, and it is an excellent place to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. The trails are well marked and easy to follow, so you won’t get lost.

There are many species of wildlife in the park. These include: monkeys, baboons, crocodiles, and many more.
