A gorilla safari to find the rare mountain gorilla is a experience that you will never forget. Mountain gorillas are critically endangered. There is an estimated 760 gorillas remaining in three countries Uganda, Rwanda and Democratic Republic of Congo. Of these gorillas only a small number of groups have been habituated for visits. Habituation of a gorilla group takes a minimum of two years of daily visits. It is only when the gorillas are completely comfortable with human’s that gorilla safari tourists are allowed to share the daily hour of contact with them.
Any gorilla safari needs to be planned carefully. Through our experience here at Experience Africa, we have compiled the following to help you prepare for one of the ultimate wildlife experiences.
