In the recent development of tourism trends in Uganda and Africa at large, Gorilla tracking is ranked among one of the flagship product of any trip to Africa for most travelers, and the fascinating feeling that you get being so near to one of our closest relatives with 98% of human DNA. There are barely three countries in the world that offer an ultimate opportunity of trekking the only surviving Mountain Gorillas on earth; these are Uganda, Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo. But what is the difference and what should make one choose Uganda rather than any other country?
Mountain Gorillas are the world’s most endangered primate species believed to be numbering approximately 1000 and the only remaining population throughout the world. Almost half of them can be found in Uganda, and populations can also be found in neighboring Rwanda and Democratic Republic of Congo. Tracking in Uganda can be done the whole year through with 98% guaranteed success rate of viewing mountain gorillas in the different seasons. Though during rainy season, the tracks in the rain-forest might be a bit muddy and slippery something that can affect movements during tracking since it will be longer/ tougher.
While in Uganda, you can do Gorilla Trekking exercise in two of its national parks namely, Mgahinga Gorilla National Park, and Bwindi Impenetrable Forest national park both located in south western Uganda, they are home to half of the surviving Mountain Gorilla Species in the world. Gorilla permits are very rare and not many permits are available (a total of 80 permits per day in Uganda). They are sold months earlier before the actual date of tracking, most especially in the peak season of June - October and December – February. You are therefore advised to book your tour and your permits far in advance.
