Gorilla Trekking in Uganda is surreal and unlike any other experience in Africa. The atmosphere of the trek through the jungle mist is unreal. With each step your anticipation builds and the reward of seeing the last remaining mountain gorillas in the world is spectacular. The setting, Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, is arguably one of the most mystical in all of Africa.
Way before we decided to self-drive across Africa I asked fellow travelers about their gorilla trek experience. “To see the gorillas is incredible, it’s worth the high cost to see them in their natural habitat,” my friend had told me. It is an easy decision to add gorilla trekking to our Africa bucket list.
So, when you have the opportunity to go Gorilla trekking make your way to Uganda and visit the largest population of mountain gorillas in the world.
