Gorilla Tracking In Uganda, Rwanda & Congo

The appeal of watching wildlife in their natural environment continues to capture the imagination of millions around the world. Multiple generations of exceptionally talented natural history filmmakers and wildlife cameramen have brought Africa into our living rooms. Collectively, they paint a vivid picture of the habitat and lifestyle of those creatures with which we share our precious planet. But there’s something especially captivating about watching an animal whose mannerisms and body language can be so similar to our own. Gorillas enthrall and terrify in equal measure, their immense bulk a threat and yet intensely beautiful. Charismatic, engaging and expressive, it’s not surprising we see so much of ourselves in their faces when we learn that over 98% of our DNA is shared.

But for many, it’s simply not enough to watch on the small screen. We yearn to venture into the world of these magnificent creatures and see for ourselves how they interact with their environment and each other. Mountain gorillas are among the most critically endangered of the planet’s species and though conservation efforts continue, numbers are still worryingly small. To be able to watch from such a close distance is an enormous privilege and one that we cannot take for granted that our grandchildren may be able to replicate.

Travelers to Uganda and Rwanda can incorporate a gorilla trekking safari into their holiday itinerary and enjoy a wildlife adventure of a lifetime. Hiking through verdant rainforest, it’s possible to follow experienced guides and trackers deep into the heart of the gorillas’ territory. The terrain is challenging, the gradients steep and the paths slippery, but the reward is immense. Though such an experience doesn’t come cheap, this is one bucket list experience that you cannot afford to put off. These gentle and shy beasts deserve our respect, and our time. Read More
