Luxury Gorilla Trekking Safaris-Uganda on which we create a Safari that entails the luxury of adventure, experience, authenticity and uninterrupted time. Luxury Gorilla Safaris focus on the value of the experience more than the cost.

Gorilla Encounters that are longer with the very limited and exclusive Gorilla Habituation Experience where you are not just an observer but become an active participant in the process of habituating the Gorillas. The Gorilla Habituation Experience is very different from Gorilla Trekking in that is a learning experience with the Mountain Gorillas.

Private Gorilla Treks and Gorilla Habituation Experiences where it is just the Trackers and Porters, the Mountain Gorillas and you.  Such times must be booked well in Advance with a range of Dates.

Luxury Safaris that are beyond mere self-indulgence and the opulence that once was a norm has  dissipated into the luxury of Experience where an encounter with the Gentle Giants is the purpose of your visit to Uganda and the lodge provides that harmonious backdrop to your once in a lifetime experience.

When it comes to Luxury we offer several Choices such as Gorilla Trekking in the Ugandan Virunga Volcanoes in Mgahinga Gorilla Park where the trek takes you up the side of slumbering Volcanoes to track the Nyakagezi Gorilla Famly with 3 Silverbacks in the group.  Gorilla Trekking in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest where the trekking experience ranges from doable to tough and the exclusive Gorilla Habituation Experience where you are with rangers and researchers on a learning experience trek, about the closest you can get to a Dian Fossey Like Experience.

Many choose to do two or all three of the Gorilla Activities in Uganda since Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and Mgahinga Gorilla Park are close to each other. Private Trekking can be arranged well in advance where it is just you, the trackers and porters but no other participants.

Add to the Trek the Golden Monkey Habituation Experience or Trek – a journey across Scenic Mutanda, Hikes through Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and a time with original people of the Forest the Batwa People who lived in close harmony with nature in Southwest. At the end of your, Trek relax and chill out along Lake Binyonyi, Mutanda in Uganda or Lake Kivu in Rwanda
