Bwindi forest is the only place in Africa where one can have a Gorilla Habituation Experience. There isn’t a specific definition of Gorilla Habituation Experience Safaris.

The process involves a team of individuals like trackers, researchers, conservationists, and rangers who take 2-3 years to have a group of Mountain Gorillas fully habituated. During the process, the team visits these wild Gorillas each day and each individual Gorilla is given a name. After the wild Gorilla Habituation process, the group is put through a mock exercise where a few people visit the Gorillas.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is Gorilla trekking?
Gorilla trekking or Gorilla Watching is defined as a hike to the tropical forests of Africa to see the mountain gorillas/Lowland in their natural habitats in Uganda, Rwanda, and Congo.
How difficult is Gorilla trekking?
Gorilla trekking involves hiking through difficult terrain, thick vegetation, water bodies, hills, and valleys. The activity can be very challenging and strenuous leaving one exhausted and with a sore knee especially if they are not used to walking for long hours.
Is Uganda or Rwanda better for gorilla trekking?
Taylor Lyn acknowledged that both Uganda and Rwanda and Congo offer great opportunities for gorilla trekking. However, she said that she personally favors Rwanda, as most of the terrain during the gorilla trekking is a little bit more open and therefore it is easier to get good.
Generally, gorillas are very shy and reserved towards people. They will attack only if they are surprised or threatened or if a person behaves in the wrong way. If the human makes an unexpected movement, the silverback male can react with horrific roaring and bluff charges. (so respect the rules and regulations)
Is Gorilla Watching worth the cost?
YES, gorilla trekking is worth the cost, energy, and time. Past travelers have reviewed the experience as unforgettable, magical, and life-changing worth the penny. Despite the high costs, discomfort, and time, gorilla tours in Rwanda, Uganda & Congo remain the best wildlife experience worth doing.
Is Gorilla trekking safe?
Gorilla trekking is very safe – accompanied by an expert guide and the right mindset, your experience with the mountain gorillas/Lowland gorillas will be as safe as it is moving.
Why is gorilla trekking so expensive?
Gorilla trekking is expensive because mountain gorillas are endangered and because of that many people want to see them. The high number of tourists interested in seeing them has forced many governments to raise the price of permits.
There are two gorilla trekking spots in Uganda: Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park and Mgahinga Gorilla National Park. Gorillas don’t pay mind to political borders, so populations across the Virungas are relatively fluid.
