Nkuringo Safaris
Mountain Gorilla Trekking in Uganda & Rwanda
A gorilla trekking tour in East Africa's mountain jungles will offer you a once-in-a-lifetime experience with the most celebrated mountain giants. Travelers have not managed to duplicate this experience anywhere in the world. Mountain Gorilla adventures have seen a spiking interest in Africa safari travelers in the recent decade because of their successful conservation story that has seen them off the critically endangered IUCN list. Visitors that have had this experience can testify how no other wildlife encounter in Africa matches the outstanding experience of spending time face-to-face with East Africa's wild mountain gorillas.

Gorilla Trekking takes place in a handful of far-flung East Africa jungle locations, adding a layer of exotic adventure to Africa safaris that is hard to match any other itinerary. The fact that gorillas as a species are on the brink of extinction and treks are a highly restricted activity, encountering wild gorillas is considered a once-in-a-lifetime leisure travel experience. To watch a family of mountain gorillas relaxing in their lush forest home is an awe-inspiring privilege and a memory you would take away and remember forever.

Nkuringo Safaris tailor-makes personal and small group gorilla experience in Uganda's Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and Rwanda's Volcanoes National Park. We handle all the logistics, including trekking permit processing, your adventure experience on the ground, where you stay, eat, and how to get there.

Other than the unmatched experience of looking into a gorilla's eyes, our gorilla trips include the local personal experience. We take the traveler to meet the locals the have lived around the (currently) protected forest in harmony with wild animals for centuries. We allow the guest to get deep into the region’s cultures, hiking, to take walks, or visiting a local home.
