This 5 Day Gorilla Adventure Safari takes you into Eastern Africa’s rainforest mountain jungles, hiking the steep slops, through misty shrubs and age old huge trees, crossing water streams and following trails to a family of mountain gorillas. Once found, you’ll be allowed to spend one hour with the habituated mountain gorilla family with strict rules not to make contact.
This a road trip from Entebbe (38 kilometers outside the capital Kampala), driving 8-9 hours into the countryside covered with a green blanket, hills and some of the most stunningly beautiful scenery in the world. Bring your “attention to nature” with you because the drive to the gorilla nation might just blow you away.
