Imagine trekking through lush-green forest, serenaded by nature’s orchestra of scintillating bird calls, monkey hoots and the occasional elephant trumpet. Your tracker beats a path through the dense foliage and silver mist swirl, when suddenly there they are…Gorillas! It’s a moment you’ll never forget.
Gorilla trekking involves walking long distances and spending a number of hours in search of the gorillas whereas gorilla tracking comes along with short distances since it is done at the nearest known gorilla group, and that is by far the main difference between gorilla trekking and gorilla tracking safaris.
Gorilla trekking/tracking in Uganda is carried out in Bwindi impenetrable forest national park as the leading gorilla safari destination in Uganda and at times, Mgahinga national park which borders with both Rwanda-on the south and DRC (Democratic Republic of Congo) to the west.
