After your first encounter with these remarkable creatures, you begin to make return plans so that you can spend time with them again. Whether you visit their homes on the volcanic slopes of Rwanda’s mountains or observe their quiet lives in the rain forests of Uganda, you treasure every moment spent with Africa’s mountain gorillas.
No other wildlife experience matches the astounding experience of being face to face with wild Mountain Gorillas. Gorillas are the largest apes which are native to Africa and they are on the brink of getting extinct, they are only found in Rwanda, Uganda and the Democratic Republic of the Congo, on green, volcanic mountains. The only means of getting closer to the Gorilla is by trekking in their natural humid, muddy and wet rain forest habitats with some steep slopes though it’s worth all your efforts once you spent some time with the gorilla families.
Whilst a gorilla trekking safari is likely to be a once-in-a-lifetime experience, You have to be fairly fit and in good health as gorillas are susceptible to human diseases like the common cold which can affect the whole gorilla family. Walking is always at a slow pace with time for breaks if needed. Depending on which group you track, and the time of year you trek. You could reach your group after a 30-minute stroll or full day adventure.
