GORILLA SAFARIS IN MGAHINGA, UGANDA - Safaris that include gorilla tracking in Mgahinga Forest, the Virungas

These tours are to Mgahinga, or to both Bwindi-Buhoma and Mgahinga, or Bwindi and Nkuringo/Nshongi/Mgahinga the gorilla groups. Please browse furtheron ahead for details of the gorilla safaris to Uganda.

The Mgahinga Gorilla Family, part of the misty virungas transcending ecosystem, is caddled up in the virunga volcanoes Area which is found across Congo, Rwanda and Uganda. The Virungas is one huge forest belt housing gorilla families in the three countries - the Uganda section is called Mgahinga; the Rwanda section is called Parc National de Volcans; the Congo section is called Parc National de Virungas. There is only one Gorilla family known as the Nyakagezi group available to trek in Mgahinga. This group of habituated mountain gorillas normally crosses the border into Rwanda's Parc de Volcanoes, and sometimes to Congo's Parc de Virungas, and can stay in any of these countries for months, making it impossible to track them. In that case, visitors are booked permits elsewhere in Uganda, Congo or Rwanda and/or get a refund.

To Top

ChimpanzeeThese are mountain gorillas, staying in high up in the mounatins of Bwindi, up to 4000metres ASL. Therefore to track them one may traverse dense growth in this impenetrable forest, through swamps and wet undergrowth, and climb cliffs and high areas in search of them. Tracking can take as little as one hour up to as many as 8 hours when one returns to base camp. But the tracking is made easy by the rangers who would have known prior to your tracking, where the gorillas are. For environmental reasons, you are allowed a maximum of one hour with the gorillas.
