Visiting Gorillas in Uganda - Camping trip
Deep in the jungles of Uganda and Rwanda lives the mighty and imposing ape, the gorilla. With this cheap gorilla you travel to the interior of Africa to come face to face with this beautiful monkey. Tropical rain forests are home to the mountain gorilla. Encountering this beast there is one of the most memorable wildlife experiences that you can experience as a traveler, anywhere in the world. An 'encounter', encounter, with male silverback gorilla you will stay with you for the rest of your life.
The governments in Uganda and Rwanda are fairly strict when it comes to issuing gorilla permits. That's a good thing, because there are only 650 gorillas left worldwide. It is therefore important that the gorillas are not exposed to too much pressure. Because gorilla permits are not always available in the same country and the gorilla is constantly moving, you may be looking for the gorilla in Uganda, Rwanda or the Democratic Republic of Congo. Two to three days are allocated in the travel program for the gorilla trek, but keep in mind that the actual search is a day. The remaining days serve as a margin, sometimes the mountain gorilla is difficult to find.
