GORILLA TREKKING IN UGANDA
Gorilla trekking is the act of walking through the jungle in search for mountain gorillas. A gorilla trek is a highlight of all the safaris done in Uganda and Rwanda and certainly Mountain Gorillas are the main reason as to why many people visit these two countries.
Gorilla trekking in Uganda is done in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and Mgahinga National Park all located in Western Uganda. Bwindi National park is well known for the endangered Mountain gorillas. The Park is a biodiverse, mountainous area in southwestern Uganda. Its home to many of the world’s remaining mountain gorillas, who feed on roots, leaves and fruits from the park’s many tree and fern species.
Restricted numbers of viewing permits help protect the endangered gorilla families. In the park, rough paths weave amid dense forests, which are home to many butterflies and birds.
