Nine countries in Africa host the endangered gorillas. Of these, the three most popular destinations for gorilla trekking tours are Uganda, Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo, the only countries that host the endangered mountain gorillas. As a bonus, a gorilla trekking tour through the Democratic Republic of Congo will also bring you exclusive encounters with lowland Gorilla that live in KahuziBiega and Maiko National Park.
Rwanda and Uganda have the most developed tracking experiences, with great accommodation, so this is where most people head to see mountain gorillas.
other gorilla destinations include Nigeria Cross River Gorillas, The Equatorial Guinea, Gabon Gorilla Tours, Angola, Congo Brazzaville is one of the best places to see western lowland gorillas. Odzala-Kokoua National Park in Congo’s north-west has two habituated groups in this wild, tropical rain forest and Central African Republic is the only other country aside from Congo that has habituated western lowland gorillas
Gorilla trekking tours can be conducted all year around in Uganda, Rwanda and Congo. The best time to go gorilla trekking in during the dry seasons of January and February and from June to September. This is because there are less rains and the parks are drier, making it simple to hike and see the gorillas.
For a gorilla trekking tour you need to be fairly fit as trekking for gorillas in mountainous rain forest means hours of hiking on steep, narrow footpaths, muddy conditions and walking through dense jungle behind a scout who slashes a path through the foliage with a machete.
You expect to see other wildlife species besides gorillas such as monkey species, butterfly species, mammals like African elephant; birds such as African green broadbill, Grauer’s swamp warbler, Turner’s Eremomela, Chapin’s flycatcher and Shelley’s crimson-wing;
Expect rain fall even in the dry season, the rain forest is a challenging environment where it can rain any time of the day, it is un predictable hence humid, wet and muddy with some steep slopes, plenty of insects and thick vegetation.
Expect to be allocated to a habituated gorilla family and once you make contact with gorillas, you’ll spend an hour with them and settle down to observe them, watching the adults forage and groom each other while the babies tumble and play. You’ll be under the watchful gaze of the great silverback patriarch, whose soft brown eyes constantly sweep over his family protectively.
Witnessing gorillas express typically human gestures and emotions is a truly profound experience and one of the reasons that gorilla trekking is such a life changing encounter.
