Gorilla travel bookings in Africa

Gorilla travel bookings in Africa – Gorilla trekking safaris in Uganda and Rwanda – Gorilla permits bookings – Budget Gorilla safari bookings in Africa. Mountain gorilla trekking is a once-in-a-lifetime chance that many people yearn for. Gorilla trekking is deemed the best African adventure and a must-do activity in Africa, as well as something believed to be a one-of-a-kind African adventure. Our gorilla safaris take you deep into Uganda’s Bwindi impenetrable national park and Mgahinga Gorilla National Park, Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo’s Virunga and Kahuzi-Biega national parks. We combine gorilla trekking with BIG 5 safaris in East Africa and wildebeest migration in Tanzania. The ultimate wildlife safari in Africa is a journey to see mountain gorillas up close and in the wild.

Where in Africa can you see gorillas?

We organise gorilla trekking safaris in Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park and Mgahinga Gorilla National Park, Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park, Congo’s Virunga National Park for mountain gorilla trekking, and Kahuzi Beiga National Park for lowland gorilla trekking.


Uganda is home to over 19 gorilla families, most of which reside in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park, a vast old forest so deep that sections of it have been hidden from human sight for millennia.
Mgahinga Gorilla National Park is located in the country’s south and borders Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park and Congo’s Virunga National Park. The park is home to one gorilla family, the Nyakagezi Group, and visitors are limited to eight per day.


Tracking gorillas in Rwanda is both safe and easy. There are roughly 1,000 mountain gorillas in the wild, with 604 in the Virunga Massif, according to the most recent count. The population is gradually expanding, thanks to the combined efforts of our governments, communities, and non-governmental organisations.
Twelve habituated gorilla families live in Volcanoes National Park, with a few more habituated purely for scientific research. The groupings, or soldiers, are made up of at least one silverback, as well as multiple females and children. Susa, Igisha, Karisimbi, Sabyinyo, Amahoro, Agashya, Kwitonda, Umubano, Hirwa, Bwenge, Ugyenda, and Muhoza are the names of the families.

Congo DRC

The Democratic Republic of the Congo is the only nation where tourists may see both mountain and lowland gorillas in the wild. It is the greatest place in the world to see wild eastern lowland gorillas. Lowland gorillas can be found in zoos all over the world, but mountain gorillas can only be found in the wild. Lowland gorillas may be tracked in the DR Congo in Kahuzi Beiga National Park, while mountain gorillas can be located in Virunga National Park.

Uganda and Rwanda are both extremely secure destinations for wildlife safaris. Although there is still insecurity in some areas of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, the nation’s unique features make it simply enticing. DR Congo is the only place where you can view both silverback mountain gorillas and lowland gorillas. Furthermore, there is the spectacular Nyiragongo Lava Lake, which is the only one that travellers from all over the globe may see. Security and safety are ensured when seeing silverback gorillas on a Congo safari by assigning armed rangers to accompany tourists during their gorilla tracking safari. A gorilla safari in Congo may be unexpected because of the insecurity surrounding the Virunga National Park, but the park administration is willing to take considerable measures to safeguard guests, even closing the park if things look to be out of control.
