UGANDA GORILLA TRACKING SAFARIS

 

Uganda Gorilla Tracking (3 DAYS)

This park found in the South western part of the country has always been referred as Impenetrable forest, it has always been conceived as the GGorilla sanctuary even though it has more than ten other species of primates e.g. chipanzees, colubus monkeys, baboons e.t.a. Bwindi also encompass one of the richest areas in Africa for flora and fauna. Clients need to be patient and prepared to scramble through more bushes than would be necessary since the gGorillas are not habituated to human contact.
