Mountain Gorillas

Come face-to-face with the power and grace of the mountain gorilla

Embark on a once-in-a-lifetime adventure and join Kikooko Africa Safaris on a mountain gorilla tracking safari in East Africa. Uganda is home to over half of the world’s remaining mountain gorillas, making it one of the best places to observe these incredible primates in their natural habitat.

You will trek through the lush forests of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and Mgahinga Gorilla National Park in Uganda, or Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda, following the footsteps of expert trackers who will lead you to the gorillas. You will observe their behavior, listen to their calls, and watch them interact with each other in their natural habitat.

An awe-inspiring moment

The way mountain gorillas communicate with each other, their human-like expressions, and the sheer size and strength of these creatures make for a truly unforgettable experience.

You’ll have the opportunity to spend an hour with a mountain gorilla family with a regular gorilla permit, or four hours with a gorilla habituation permit. Whichever you choose, know that the time will pass by in the blink of an eye.
