The Great Apes are a source of our fascination. They are considered to be some of the most intelligent and socially organized animals. Yet sadly Mountain Gorillas are one of the world’s most endangered apes and it is estimated that there are approximately 720 left throughout the world. They have little remaining natural habitat. What is left is located in the stunningly beautiful, volcanic, mountainous regions of Rwanda and Uganda, Africa.
Gorilla safaris are niche African safaris. There are a few companies that specialize in them. Only 8 people can visit a given gorilla family per day. In Uganda, ten families have been habituated in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest NP. Rwanda can also take 80 persons per day. Ultimately that means 160 persons per day tacking the gorillas here. Whatever company you select there’s little question that your time with the gorillas, will be one experience that you will carry with you for the remainder of your life.
Volcanoes Safaris is one of the preeminent companies specializing in mountain gorilla tracking based around our eco-luxury lodges in Uganda and Rwanda.
