Encounter The World’s Last Remaining Wild Mountain Gorillas
For Africa’s ultimate wildlife experience, travel to the forests of Rwanda or Uganda, where just over 700 mountain gorillas remain in the wild. A few gorilla family groups here are habituated to humans, making it easier to encounter these gentle giants on organised guided treks.
A number of comfortable lodges are located at the edge of the national parks and are the perfect base for gorilla trekking. Permits for gorilla viewing are difficult to attain, and must be booked well in advance.
