We traveled to bwindi to see the gorilla's. It was a bucket list thing to see them at least once in my life in real. The re are several groups you can visit. Each day you have to walk to them because they move around,...More

After seeing a wild chimpanzee family group in Kibale National Forest, the gentle mountain gorillas of Bwindi had a hint of very quiet drama at best. Maybe the mountain gorillas are more civilized than the gorillas. It was very interesting that we were allowed to...More

We spent 7 days in Uganda and did the Chimpanzee Trek and the Gorilla Trek. We also crossed over to Rwanda to do the Gorilla Trek there. In Uganda, they have low season for permits so we paid a reduced price of $450 per person....More

The Bwindi Impenetrable National Park apart from being home of the rare mountain gorilla, is also habitat to so many birds life and butterflies.

I have to list this under one of my favorite travel experiences. A visit to Bwindi Impenetrable National park is worth the long drive from Kampala as what you encounter in the park is so rare due to mountain gorillas being endangered. There are several...More

This where we went gorilla trekking from Lake Bunyunyi. Treks are very well organized and you WILL see the gorillas. They are watched over nearly 24/7 by trackers with radios. They help your tracking guides walk you in. We are in our mid-sixties, in good...More

We traveled here in late January. Before we went I thought the $600 per person seemed awfully high. After going I would say it was cheap. There are many great and detailed reviews here. I will say that this is one of those experiences where...More

What an amazing experience we had, never imagined that would be so close to the gorillas with even a gorilla touching us. The guides and support team were very supportive providing a lot of assistance climbing and trekking the mountain. Would highly recommend the experience,...More

This is what most people come to Uganda for, the Gorillas! We tracked the Mubare group. Initially thought we were doing well. Two and a half hours later (when they eventually stopped!) we met them. 1 silver back, mums with babies, life changing experience. Lots...More

Hi terry, we went with Africa Wild Explorations (have been with them around Uganda for 2 years in a row, they are outstanding) and actually I believe the group you visit is decided by the rangers. We saw a 10 day old baby... More
