In the Presence of the Mountain Gorillas in Uganda

Your one-of-a-kind Up-Close Gorilla Encounter-Your Gorillas in the Mist Experience


 An Up-Close Gorilla Encounter which is a one of a kind experience for most. Meeting the Mountain Gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, for many is like the end of a lifelong quest to see the Gentle Giants in their natural Habitat in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest   A name that means darkness in the local language, however, for those that come here, it is anything but that.  It is the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get close to one of our closest relatives, the Mountain Gorillas, something that cannot be replicated anywhere else in the world.

Bwindi Impenetrable Forest is a UNESCO World Heritage Site that is over 20,00 years old where only the first people of the Forest lived, the Batwa people in harmony with nature and the Great Apes.

For many, this is much more than a mere hike in the Forest but the Trail to an encounter with the Gentle Giants of the Forest, the Mountain Gorillas.

Thousands make the journey each year, most come to visit and see the Mountain Gorillas, creatures, that cannot be seen in elsewhere in the World but only in the  Mufumbiro Mountains that Cook and Bwindi Impenetrable Forest.

For all the up-close encounter with the Mountain Gorillas is a once in a lifetime experience, something on their Bucket list of ” Must Do’s – while for others it is more, it is more – it is arriving at the destination, the end of a lifelong quest – a personal encounter with the Gentle Giants of the African Rainforest in the Highlands of Uganda, an almost spiritual experience that is beyond sentimentality.

The Swahili word “Safari” explains it best since the real meaning of the word is a journey. Your Gorilla Trekking Safari and when Africans use the word it represents their trip upcountry to their village to meet with Family and Friends.  Your Gorilla Trek is your journey, to meet, encounter some of our closest relatives in their home, Bwindi Impenetrable Forest.
