Uganda Safari – Best Destination For Gorilla Trekking & Wildlife Viewing

Winston Churchill called Uganda the “Pearl of Africa” in his 1908 book, My African Journey. In only three words, the moniker captures the essence of the East African nation’s stunning natural beauty, from its verdant landscapes and colourful flowers to the majestic animals that call the plains home. As Uganda has become one of the most sought-after vacation spots in all of Africa, the reputation has only increased.

Among the many unforgettable African excursions, a safari in Uganda stands head and shoulders above the others. With more than 20% of its territory set aside for wildlife reserves, Uganda is mostly unspoiled, allowing safarigoers to marvel at the breathtaking scenery.

Uganda is home to an abundance of wildlife that is both large and varied, providing tourists with opportunities they won’t find anywhere else. The best places to see wildlife in Uganda are Murchison Falls and Queen Elizabeth National Park. You may go chimpanzee trekking, take a river boat, and maybe even spot the infamous tree-climbing lions. On the other hand, guided chimpanzee hikes at Kibale Forest National Park are an easy way to get a fascinating look at tropical rainforest life. Also, the rainforests of Uganda are home to many fascinating things. Two of the greatest places to go on a once-in-a-lifetime gorilla trip are Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park and Mgahinga National Park, which together safeguard almost half of the mountain gorilla population on Earth.

With so much to see and do in Uganda, we recommend the following safari packages:

Frequently Asked Questions about Uganda Gorilla Tracking Safaris

There are lots of frequently asked questions about gorilla safaris in Uganda.  Our latest information helps you answer all of the questions about Uganda Gorilla tours. Find all you need to know including permit costs, the best time to go Gorilla trekking, the best accommodations, and much more.

Gorilla watching is defined as a trek to the tropical forests of Uganda to see the mountain gorillas in their natural habitat.

Gorilla trekking involves trekking 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.

Although dominant and strong, mountain gorillas are gentle and shy. The mountain gorillas that trekkers are able to visit have also become habituated to the presence of humans. The habituation process takes close to two years, and habituated gorillas, in particular, are considered safe to be around.

To many travelers, Gorilla trekking is expensive, however, this price is worth the activity. What makes gorilla watching a little more expensive than other activities is the fact that Gorilla conservation is expensive. Rangers spend every single day in the forest protecting the gorillas and ensuring they are safe from poachers. Gorilla doctors too spend a lot of time ensuring that gorillas are doing fine.

Uganda is definitely the best destination in the world to trek Mountain gorillas. The reason why Uganda is best for gorilla trekking is that the country is safe and stable from any kind of political unrest.

Booking chimpanzee trekking permits in Uganda – chimpanzee trekking offers an awful wilderness safari experience, just like the famous mountain gorilla watching in the country. Chimpanzee is thought infamous compared to mountain gorilla trekking despite its fantastic safari experience.
