Itinerary in detail

1 Day gorilla safari in Uganda

On an early morning, enjoy a delicious breakfast at a designated restaurant and get ready for departure, a guide from Friendly Gorillas Safaris will pick you up between 5 – 6 am and you will head to the briefing point at the park offices, because it is necessary for you to understand how to behave with gorillas and what to expect.

You’ll be separated into groups of eight (or fewer, depending on the season) individuals and allocated to various gorilla groups based on your general health and preferences. The park is home to ten (10) habituated gorilla species.

Be mentally and physically prepared for the walk, as it could be tiring or last longer than scheduled, depending on the location of your allocated gorilla family on that particular day. Bring gorilla tracking boots, long stockings, a raincoat, a hat, and rain-proof trousers with you.

Park rangers will provide you with a trekking stick and accompany you on your journey – Pay attention to what they’re doing. Porters can be hired for about $15 to relieve you of the pressure of dragging extra heavy bags, allowing you to concentrate on gorilla watching.

On an encounter with the gorilla families, you’ll have a 1-hour awe-inspiring encounter with the endangered gorillas, so take as many pictures and videos as possible as soon as you see them. Our guide will pick you up and drive you to your hotel in Kisoro or Kabale after you’ve finished witnessing the majestic mountain gorillas.
