Some of our living closest relatives, Mountain gorillas are exceedingly rare. They reside in just four national parks in Africa. Two of these (Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and Mgahinda National Park) are found in Uganda and all of the remaining populations of Mountain gorillas are heavily protected by armed guards, to the point that their numbers are actually increasing, after decades of war and persecution in their rainforest home. Tourism is vital to this continuing recovery, giving local people an incentive to protect the gorillas. No trip to Uganda would be complete without a trek into the dense jungle in search of these magnificent creatures. Treks can range from 45 minutes to 8 hours, depending on the location of the gorillas. You’ll spend around an hour watching from a safe distance.
