Gorilla trekking safaris and everything you need to know
Under guidance from the best, most highly trained people for the job, you find yourself face-to-face with something that seems so unequivocally human, it takes your breath away. An early start and a trek through dense rainforest is totally worth it for the privilege of spending an hour with these fascinating mammals. Youngsters may show off and huge silverbacks may beat their chests, but nothing beats just witnessing a gorilla family as they go about their daily business, chomp on bamboo, and watch you in return. It is no wonder that a gorilla trekking safari is often referred to as ‘the most memorable in the world’.
Our expert knowledge means we can put you in the right place at the right time to meet these wonderful animals in their natural environment. Having started as World Primate Safaris back in 2005, you know you are in the best hands, whatever your needs and wants. Make sure you become one of the special few who get to meet the gorillas in their own homes within Uganda or Rwanda.
As face-to-face encounters go (which only take place in very select locations in East Africa, involving animals quite literally on the brink of extinction) gorilla trekking is a life-changing and once-in-a-lifetime experience.
No other wildlife encounter can match the awe-inspiring experience that is a mountain gorilla trekking safari.
