Classic Uganda Gorilla Safari

Classic Uganda Gorilla Safari

10 Days in Uganda

Trekking through the dense, Bwindi Impenetrable Forest to encounter wild mountain gorillas is simply one of the most amazing wildlife experiences that you can have on the planet. This itinerary includes two days of gorilla trekking to give you the very best opportunity for a close encounter with a family of these magnificent creatures. 

In addition to silverback gorillas, you'll also have the chance to observe wild chimpanzees in Kibale Forest, explore Queen Elizabeth National Park in search of lions (especially those that have a preference for climbing trees in Ishasha) and enjoy a private boat through the Kazinga Channel, the best place to observe many of Uganda's 1,000+ recorded bird species.

An upgrade to Clouds Mountain Gorilla Lodge puts you in a remote corner of Bwindi with some of the best views out into the volcanoes region of Rwanda. It's even possible to trek across Bwindi to get there! Inquire for details.

Consider extending your time here to Murchison Falls National Park or even the remote and wild Kidepo Valley National Park.
