Destinations and Experiences in Uganda

Gorilla Trekking in Bwindi Forest

Gorilla trekking in Uganda is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that should be on every adventurer’s bucket list. With over half of the world’s remaining mountain gorillas living in the country’s Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, Uganda is one of the best places to see these majestic creatures in their natural habitat.

The trek through the dense jungle can be challenging, but it is worth it to witness the gorillas in their family groups, playing, feeding, and grooming each other. Trekking permits are required and limited to minimize human impact on the gorillas’ habitat, so it’s essential to plan ahead and book in advance.

Not only is gorilla trekking in Uganda an unforgettable experience, but it also supports conservation efforts and helps to protect these endangered animals.

Chimpanzee Trekking in Kibale Forest

Kibale National Park alone is estimated to have over 1,450 chimpanzees, making it the largest population of chimpanzees in Uganda.

Chimpanzee trekking in Kibale National Park offers a unique opportunity to observe these intelligent primates in their natural habitat.

Visitors can track the chimpanzees as they swing through the trees and interact with their families. Permits are required and limited to ensure the chimpanzees’ protection and privacy.
