This is really something very special. A moving experience, and a privilege to be able to visit these beautiful creatures in their rapidly receding habitat. All around the forest, for miles/kilometers all you can see is the human destruction of what must once have been...More

We did gorilla trekking with Nomad Africa Tours in June. One of the best experiences of my life! Depending on where you find the gorillas, it might take 1-5 hours of uphill bush-whacking to get there, but it is worth it. Do yourself a favour...More

The Bwindi Impenetrable NP is a great park to hike and to see the impressive gorilla's/silverbacks. There are many lodges to stay, for every budget.

This one hour with the gorillas was totally worth a long, long trip. We traveled with a group of friends from Nairobi to Entebbe and then on a 9 hours drive to Bwindi. While the scenery is interesting and certainly pleasant, the road trip is...More

Hi terry, we went with Africa Wild Explorations (have been with them around Uganda for 2 years in a row, they are outstanding) and actually I believe the group you visit is decided by the rangers. We saw a 10 day old baby... More
