The Ultimate Family Adventure – Gorilla Trekking in Uganda with your Family

Out of the Ordinary Holiday – Family Gorilla Trekking Safari with Teens in Uganda


 Family Gorilla Trekking Safari with Teens is the ultimate African Adventure in an ancient Rainforest, Bwindi Impenetrable Forest or on the sides of brooding Volcanoes in Mgahinga Gorilla Park in Uganda, the Pearl of Africa. It is Gorillas plus, Hiking, Volcano Climbing, Golden Monkey Trekking, Dugout Canoeing on lakes that are a scene from Lord of the Rings. All the while staying in a midrange or luxury Gorilla Safari Lodges, Family Cottages are available at some of the lodges.

Family Gorilla Trekking Safari with Teens in Uganda are family builders – an activity not elsewhere but done best in Uganda since Uganda keeps Gorilla Trekking affordable.

There are 3 Countries that you can trek Mountain Gorillas in, but only Uganda is safe and affordable.  For many, it is about the math, Gorilla Permits for a Family of 4 is 6,000 USD is Rwanda, in neighboring Rwanda, the T.J. Maxx of Gorilla Tourism it is only 2,400.  That difference will pay for many things such as  lodging, ground transport, drinks at lodges and other adrenaline-pumping adventures your teenagers will love.

Only in Uganda can you combine  Gorilla Trekking with Volcano Climbing, Dugout Canoeing, exploring the forest with the first people of the forest, the Batwa Pygmies, trek Chimpanzees, Golden Monkeys, see Tree Climbing Lions, explore the Foothills of the snowcapped Rwenzori Mountains of the Moon, go white water rafting on the ancient Nile and trek chimpanzees in a Jungle, and that is just the beginning.

The minimum age for Gorilla Trekking is 15.  If the child is 14 and will soon become 15 an exception can be made as we apply for a waiver of the rule with Uganda Wildlife Authority.

We have seen an increase in Family Gorilla Trekking Safaris with more families sharing the experience together.  If you are Family of 4 and choose the Gorilla Habituation Experience Trek your time with a Gorilla Family would be a private one since only 4 participants are allowed plus the rangers and trackers that are with you on that.  4-hours of your family entering the living room of a Gorilla Family in Wild, now that is something for your teenage daughter to tweet about, though Social Media Access might be slow or limited.

One thing is for sure, a Family Gorilla Trek is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for most.  Sharing that one-of-a-kind experience with your family, an experience that cannot be replicated elsewhere in the world, Mountain Gorillas are not found in any Zoo, that experience, we have seen, will only strengthen family ties through the bonding of the common experience you are sharing on your Trekking Day in the wild of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest or Mgahinga Gorilla Park in Uganda.
