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 and.

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 in Rwanda. In Uganda the same permits, the same permits are only 2,400 USD.  That difference of 4,600 USD will pay for many things such as lodging, ground transport, drinks at lodges, and other adrenaline-pumping adventures your teenagers will love.

There is Volcano Climbing, Dugout Canoeing, Interesting the Cultural Encounters. You can add Chimpanzees, Golden Monkeys, see Tree Climbing Lions. You can 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.  If you are a Family of 4 and choose the Gorilla Habituation Experience Trek, your time with a Gorilla Family would be a private one since there are 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. 

It is about 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. Doing that experience together will only strengthen family ties.
