Organizing a gorilla or chimpanzee trekking safari from Mbarara can be a hassle, especially when it comes to booking permits through the Uganda Wildlife Authority in Kampala. That’s where Trek Africa Expeditions comes in. We simplify the process by checking the availability of permits for your desired dates and reserving them on your behalf. You won’t need to travel to Kampala to pick up the permits as our driver-guide will have them on the day of your departure. We’ll also send you scanned copies for your records.

For those looking to trek gorillas in the wild, Mbarara town provides easy access to two of Uganda’s prime destinations: Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and Mgahinga National Park. Bwindi boasts over 19 habituated mountain gorilla families located in different areas, including Ruhija, Nkuringo, Rushaga, and Buhoma. To learn more about the different gorilla families, permits, and allocation, reach out to Trek Africa Expeditions for expert advice.
Mbarara also offers a convenient starting point for chimpanzee trekking, with Kibale National Park being one of the top destinations to see habituated chimps in the wild. It’s a 2-3 hour drive from Mbarara to Kibale, and the park offers morning, mid-morning, and afternoon trekking options. Not only is Kibale the best place to see habituated chimps and other primates, but it’s also a popular destination for bird watching and forest walks. Additionally, Karinzu and Kyambura also offer opportunities to see habituated communities of chimpanzees.
When it comes to planning gorilla and chimpanzee trekking tours from Mbarara, it is possible to book your trip at any time of the year. However, peak seasons such as June, July, August, December, January, and February tend to have higher demand and competition for gorilla permits and chimpanzee permits. On the other hand, off-peak seasons like April, May, and November have less foot traffic, resulting in fewer people booking permits.
Given the importance of securing gorilla permits and chimpanzee permits, it is advisable to book your permits at least 3 to 4 months in advance, especially during peak seasons. This way, you will ensure that you secure a spot for your desired dates. Once the permits are confirmed, Trek Africa Expeditions can then proceed to arrange your accommodation and transportation from Mbarara to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park.
