Coming face to face with the gorillas in their Natural habitat

This is probably Uganda’s top highlight amongst all the activities in Uganda, that you cannot afford to miss. Mountain Gorillas cannot just be found in other national parks in the world except in Uganda, Rwanda and Congo. Uganda is blessed because it holds about half of the world’s mountain gorillas from both Bwindi and Mgahinga gorilla National Parks.  Gorilla trekking is on every traveller/self-driver bucket list and you can only make that dream come true with your 4×4 self-drive Uganda gorilla trekking safaris, where you enjoy your full one hour in the presence of the gorillas, or opt for 4 hours during your gorilla habituation experience.

Just like Trekking gorillas, you also have the chance to come face to face with chimpanzees in their natural habitat where you will also have a full hour in their presence, but the case is different with chimp habituation where you have a full day as you watch them do their daily activities including building their nests, feeding their young ones among others
