Where Can I Do Gorilla Trekking In Uganda?

Gorilla trekking in Uganda can be done in two main national parks including Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park and Mgahinga Gorilla National Park. Both are known for their population of mountain gorillas and lush, diverse ecosystems.

Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park

This UNESCO World Heritage site is renowned for its dense, ancient forest and incredible biodiversity. Bwindi is home to nearly half of the world’s mountain gorilla population and has several habituated gorilla families for trekking. The park offers various trailheads for trekking, each leading to different sections of the forest. Visitors can expect a range of trekking experiences depending on the location of the gorilla groups, from gentle hikes to more challenging treks through the thick jungle.

Mgahinga Gorilla National Park

Located in southwestern Uganda, Mgahinga is part of the Virunga Conservation Area and shares its borders with Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The park features three dormant volcanoes and a range of habitats, including bamboo forests and montane forest. Mgahinga is home to one habituated gorilla group, providing a more intimate and serene trekking experience compared to Bwindi.

Both parks offer exceptional opportunities to observe mountain gorillas in their natural habitat while surrounded by breathtaking landscapes. Whether you choose Bwindi or Mgahinga, gorilla trekking in Uganda promises an unforgettable adventure and a chance to witness these magnificent primates up close.
