Every December, many travelers choose to celebrate their holiday season with a unique and unforgettable Christmas Gorilla tracking safari in Uganda. Known as the “Pearl of Africa”, Uganda offers a wealth of natural wonders, including the endangered Mountain Gorillas, Chimpanzees, Golden Monkeys and an abundance of other wildlife.
This season is a prime time for Gorilla and Chimpanzee tracking and it is important to note that Gorilla and Chimpanzee permits become extremely scarce during this time, as well as reservations for accommodation, especially for executive and luxury lodges. It is highly recommended to book well in advance to avoid disappointment.
Experience a change of scenery and escape the harsh Winter of Northern Europe, the United States and other regions and immerse yourself in the welcoming and warm climate of Uganda, where you can enjoy the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to track the elusive and magnificent Mountain Gorillas and Chimpanzees in East Africa.
Experience the ultimate in privacy and exclusivity on a personalized Christmas Gorilla tracking safari holiday in Uganda, the “Pearl of Africa”, where you can have an incredible and intimate encounter with the gentle giants of the forest in a safe and secure environment.
The duration of your memorable Christmas Gorilla holiday in Uganda can vary, ranging from a 3-day Gorilla tracking adventure to the exclusive Uganda Gorilla Habituation Experience, up to 10 days or longer. Longer safaris can include visits to other renowned national parks and attractions such as Murchison Falls National Park, Kibale Forest National Park, Rwenzori Mountains National Park, Queen Elizabeth National Park, Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park and Lake Mburo National Park.
Enhance your experience by including other activities such as the Volcano Mountain hike in Mgahinga Gorilla National Park or a walking safari through the Impenetrable Forest of Bwindi down to Lake Mutanda for a relaxing and rejuvenating experience after your Gorilla trek. With so many options, you can tailor your holiday to your preferences and create an unforgettable Christmas Gorilla tracking safari in Uganda.
Are you tired of the traditional Christmas celebrations at home? Look no further than Uganda and Rwanda for a truly unique holiday experience. Every year, these countries offer the opportunity to spend Christmas in the company of mountain gorillas. Not only will you get to spend time with these rare and majestic creatures, but you’ll also be making a contribution towards their conservation and survival. Make this Christmas one to remember with a gorilla trek in Uganda or Rwanda.
Christmas is a popular time for gorilla trekking, and as such, it’s important to plan ahead to secure your permits and accommodations. Gorilla permits in Uganda cost USD700 per person per trek and allow you to spend one hour with the gorillas. However, if you’re looking for an even more immersive experience, consider the Gorilla Habituation Experience, which costs USD1500 per person per trek and allows you to spend four hours with a semi-habituated gorilla family. This option is only available in Uganda’s Rushaga sector of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park, and is limited to four people per day per trek.
Once your gorilla permits are secured, the next step is to book your lodgings. We recommend booking well in advance to ensure availability during the busy Christmas season.
After you have your permits and accommodations sorted, you can start planning other aspects of your safari holiday. Depending on the number of days you have, you can add on other activities such as game viewing, boat safaris, chimpanzee or golden monkey tracking.
