Gorilla & Chimpanzee Trekking
Where to go
To trek through Africa’s last great rainforests and come face to face with gorillas or chimpanzees is a sublime encounter with the wild. Meeting our closest cousins in the heart of Central Africa, is a mind-altering experience. Go trekking in the forest and be treated to the sight of chimps swinging through the tree canopy above your head. Or encounter a family of wild gorillas, lounging in a stand of bamboo on the slopes of a volcano. Such unforgettable moments are the stuff of dreams.
Although there are several subspecies of gorilla, the mountain gorilla is the rarest and the most tracked. On the forested slopes of the Virunga Mountains in Rwanda and Uganda, as well as in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, you’ll find a number of habituated family groups that allow humans into their space. Accompanied by trained guides you’ll trek into the mountains and spend time with these gentle giants.
With gorillas, your time is restricted to one, precious hour (so as not to unduly disturb them). Sitting quietly beside the gentle giants is a peaceful, even life-altering, experience. Generally, with chimpanzees, there is no restriction on time, as long as you can keep up as they swing through the trees above your head like hairy angels.
