Relentless Gorilla Expeditions & Adventures in Africa

Need to experience hardcore gorilla expeditions in Africa? Gorilla trekking is a very classic adventure for all visitors because you get to meet apes that replicate human characters as well as share over 98% of human DNA. These primates can only be found in the African continent, East Africa in particular. Thanks for the endless efforts by researchers like Dian Fossey, whose efforts towards conserving these the mountain gorilla species has made it possible for people to go on gorilla expeditions in Africa.

When you have a glance at most of the Travelers’ bucket list, you will be amazed upon discovery that most of them have gorilla Trekking in it. In Africa, mountain gorillas are known to be one of the most interesting primates in the wilderness available for trekking. With a diversity of gorilla species that have made it possible for trekking experiences, gorilla trekking remains the primary face of Africa’s tourism. Several conservation associations and programs have promoted the continued existence of these primates. See some of our hardcore gorilla expeditions below.



Gorilla Expeditions Uganda, Rwanda & Congo

Uganda happens to be one of the countries that have hosted half of the endangered Mountain gorilla species enabling Gorilla trekking to occur, in the different national parks of Bwindi located in the Southern part of Uganda with four sectors for trekking as well as Mgahinga national park with only one Gorilla family. The park is situated at the top of the Virunga bordering DR Congo and Rwanda. Bwindi Impenetrable forest has four sectors having gorilla families conserved for trekking namely Rushaga, Ruhija, Buhoma, and Nkuringo. It will only cost you $600 to trek Gorillas in Uganda, an activity that commences at 8:30 in the morning with a pre-trekking briefing before being led to the Jungle for the quest for these lovely relatives in the wild.

In Rwanda, gorilla trekking is carried out in Volcanoes National Park situated in Rwanda approximately 80km from Kigali international airport making it very accessible and time-saving, it will only take you 2hours drive to reach the Gorillas. The park rangers often start the day with a pre trekking briefing while verifying most of the documents you have moved with, thereafter, you will follow the trail to the Jungle to trace for your relatives who will be carrying on with their daily activities and very unbothered about your presence, Depending on how far the primates have moved, the trek can last for up to 4hours. Carrying out trekking activities is at only $1500

Though with rumors of insecurity and Outbreak diseases, Democratic Republic of Congo still presents to tourists an opportunity of Trekking both Mountain Gorillas in the oldest national park namely; Virunga national park with over 250 gorilla habituated families well as the low land Gorillas in a less popular park of Bien Kahuzi national park, though unpopular to many. Note that Virunga Massif which is a conservation area is the host of this park, Virunga national park is home to over 8 gorillas habituated. Gorilla trekking in Africa is very interesting, however, only 8 permits are available for every day, no flashlight cameras are allowed, an 8-meter distance from the Gorillas has to be observed, silence should be observed and other regulations, so don’t despair, you will only need to make a choice that will work best for you.
