Focusing on Gorillas – a Mountain Gorilla Photographic Safari in Uganda

Your More Time – Mountain Gorilla Photo Safari in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest-Mgahinga Gorilla Park


Photographers have said for years that they needed more time with a Gorilla Family to get the  shots that they wanted.  A Mountain Gorilla Photographic Safari in Uganda gives you just that.  The Gorilla Habituation Experience is the perfect solution for many photographers.  It translates into being with a Gorilla Family for 4-hours on an all-day Trek in the Southern Area of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest in the Rushaga area.

The Main Reason for a Habituation Experience Mountain Gorilla Photographic Safari is more time with a Gorilla Family, and the added Benefits are fewer participants, only four compared to eight on a regular Trek.  There is also the quality input from researchers and Rangers, not something generally received on usual Treks.

Do keep in mind, that on a Gorilla Habituation Experience Safari you are not just an observer but an active participant in the habituation process.  You are in the presence of a Gorilla Family in their living room in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest.

 Some of those that have been on a Photography Safari has been with Gorillas in Uganda in two very different settings, Mgahinga Gorilla Park and Bwindi Impenetrable Forest.  Mgahinga Gorilla Park means trekking in the shadows of the Virunga Volcanoes, while Bwindi Impenetrable Forest is an ancient rainforest that survived the shift of the earth that shaped much of the area and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

We can personalize your Photographic Gorilla Safari to include Golden Monkey Trekking, Volcano climbing of Mount Gahinga, Mount Muhavura and Mount Sabinyo from where you can take some amazing photos above the clouds.

We can also arrange a completely private photographic Gorilla Encounter for you and your party – something more and more is taking advantage of since it means no interference from fellow trekkers and you can focus on your photography.
