The past decade has seen a surge in interest among African safari travelers for Mountain Gorilla Safaris Tours. Those who have ventured into this experience attest that no other wildlife encounter in Africa rivals the astounding intimacy of spending time face-to-face with Africa’s Mountain Gorillas. Gorilla tracking, conducted in remote East African jungle locations, adds an exotic layer of adventure to African Gorilla safaris, creating an experience unmatched by any other itinerary. Due to the endangered status of Mountain Gorillas and the highly restricted nature of treks, encountering wild Gorillas is deemed a once-in-a-lifetime travel privilege. Watching a family of Mountain Gorillas in their lush forest habitat is not only awe-inspiring but leaves an indelible memory to cherish forever.
Gorillas inhabit the tropical rainforest jungles of East Africa exclusively, making them truly wild beings intolerant of human presence. Thanks to the groundbreaking research of Dian Fossey on Mountain Gorillas in 1966, Gorilla habituation became possible.
Ruhija Gorilla Safaris & Tours facilitate Gorilla tracking, a captivating tourist activity conducted in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and Mgahinga Gorilla National Parks of Uganda, Volcanoes National Park of Rwanda, and Virunga National Park in the Democratic Republic of Congo. To participate in Gorilla tracking, one must secure a Gorilla permit. Park rangers initiate the daily search for Gorillas before trackers embark on their forest hike, ensuring a remarkable 99% chance of encountering these majestic creatures.
The issuance of Gorilla permits falls under the purview of the Uganda Wildlife Authority, the government body overseeing all Uganda National Parks. These permits grant paying participants the opportunity to join Gorilla tracking, spending one hour in the presence of Africa’s Mountain Gorillas. This once-in-a-lifetime experience has been hailed by many as unparalleled among all Africa safari activities.
In Ruhija, located in the East of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park, visitors to Uganda relish the opportunity to track Mountain Gorillas, especially those crossing from Kigali, Rwanda. With a competitive price of USD 700 per person per trek and a maximum of eight people per group per day, securing Gorilla tracking permits in advance is imperative to ensure availability.
