Where to find the Silverback Gorillas in Uganda

Looking for where to find the Silverback Gorillas in Uganda? There are approximately 1000 mountain gorillas left in Central Africa of which half of that estimate is found in Uganda in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. This alone should be reason enough to choose Uganda as your destination for a gorilla trekking safari. If you have been looking for the best place to find the Silverback Gorilla in Uganda then i would recommend Bwindi Impenetrable National Park any day.

Silverback Gorilla

What you should know is Gorilla Trekking permits can only be obtained for two national parks in Uganda which are: Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and Mgahinga Gorilla National Park. Bwindi still holds the best spot for Gorilla Tracking because the situation in Mgahinga Gorilla National Park is quite uncertain since Silverback Gorillas move in and out of the country to Democratic Republic of Congoand Rwanda especially during rainy seasons implicating you are likely to see less of them during certain months of the year. However, this shouldn’t worry you because our safari guides are experienced enough to choose the best time to visit Mgahinga and see mountain gorillas in plenty.

Gorilla Trekking permits are one of the requirements for tracking Silverback Gorillas in Uganda. Each permit goes for $600  but have to be secured months in advance prior to your Uganda safari because they are limited and hard to secure for close dates.

Silverback Gorillas

So when is the best time to see Silverback Gorillas in Uganda? definitely during the dry seasons of the year which are June to August and December to February. During these months the national game parks are not so wet and remain just perfect for a trip and a few activities like game viewing. If you ask us when to visit Uganda gorillas, we would definitely recommend those two seasons though it’s good to also try out the rest of the months; the weather might be unpredictable but could still be perfect for a trip.

Want to see the Silverback Gorillas Uganda was blessed with? Book a Uganda Safari with us today and we shall arrange for you a nice and memorable safari to Uganda.

Sedrick was unique and stood out from the rest in the high quality communication he provided since the first inquiry. He called me to provide information about the itinerary and see if I had any questions even before booking the tour. We communicated through WhatsApp for any other questions that came to mind after that call. After picking me up from the airport, he and Pilot (additional tour guide) provided plenty of information about the country to give me some context and we started our long drive to the impenetrable forest. The food was delicious with many options; the accommodation was very clean with exceptional service; and the transportation from Entebbe to Bwindi park was very comfortable (although long). As a solo female traveler, both tour guides (Sedrick and Pilot) did an exceptional job at enduring I accomplished everything intended to in Uganda, and always made me feel safe. I highly recommend to book your safari with this company because the quality and professionalism will not let you down.

I was going on a gorilla safari with my friend and this was going to be the first ever safari for the both of us. Luckily, the communication with the office was super easy and we got answers to all of the questions we needed. The driver / guide (Sedrick) was very professional and funny and made our time very pleasant. Also, he had a proper knowledge of the local area close to the Mgahinga national park and he promptly spoke some 7 languages which we thought was super positive. The safari was surely the highlight of out East African trip!

My Team and I did a five day trip, including Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary, Murchison Falls and Kidepo. It was truly an incredible experience. Our guide, Sedrick, was knowledgeable, skilled in driving in some challenging settings and just plain fun to hang out with for five days. The lodging was perfect, especially Savannah Lodge. The tents and beds were high quality. The views were spectacular. Meals were delicious and varied. I recommend Ngoni safaris Uganda with all my heart and soul!

Our six days trip was amazing. The driver/guide had an incredible knowledge of animal and bird-life and are so interesting to talk to. His driving skills through lashing rain and massive puddles was admirable! The cooks managed to produce varied and delicious meals from the kitchen, which we ate both at accommodation or roadside when we were travelling from one place to another . At all times we felt safe and well-looked after. All in all, an incredible experience, due not only to the abundance of wildlife we were lucky enough to see, but also to the great efforts put to have our Safari a better one . The safari was full of fun. Traveling with ngoni safaris is my life time memorable experience and I highly recommend it to travellers who would love to visit uganda or EastAfrica for holidays, vacations or Adventure.. Even five stars are too small .
