Uganda Contour Map

Rwanda’s misty mountain forests are home to more than 300 of the world’s mountain gorillas and offer the easiest access routes for tracking them. There are 12 habituated gorilla families in the forest, and no more than eight people are allowed to visit any given family for more than an hour each day. We can arrange these treks, procuring your permit and setting you up with a dedicated driver guide as well as your own national park ranger. We can buy out your ranger’s entire walking group if you want your trek to be private.

Mountain gorillas are terribly endangered, which makes gorilla trekking not just a singular experience but an exclusive one. The duration and intensity of your hike will depend in part on which gorilla group you’re visiting, but this is by and large a family-friendly activity: Some routes will take you along a mix of easy to moderate trails, while others will incorporate climbs up and down hills with steeper grades
