Recommended Gorilla Trekking Itineraries

They're so like us, and yet so different! Gorilla trekking is a life changing experience, allowing you the opportunity to have a close encounter with these gentle giants of the jungle in their natural habitat. Our Gorilla trekking safaris take place in either Uganda, Rwanda or DRC, depending on local conditions and the availability of permits. The cost of a Gorilla Trekking Permit has gone from $600 to $1500 per person a trek in Rwanda, thus making Uganda Bwindi Forest and the DRC much more affordable.

For a gorilla trek you’ll need to be fairly fit, and mentally prepared for the humid, muddy conditions of a rainforest hike. You’ll also need to be in good health – gorillas are susceptible to human illnesses but don’t have our immunities, so a common cold could be deadly to a family of gorillas.

You’ll spend between 40 minutes and an hour with the gorillas, watching the adults forage and groom each other while the babies tumble and play. All the while, you will be under the watchful gaze of the great silverback patriarch, whose brown eyes constantly and protectively sweep over his family.
