Trek the Gorilla Adventure in Uganda
Trek through the rainforests of the Virunga Mountain Range and encounter endangered species on this once-in-a-lifetime gorilla tracking adventure.
Together, we'll trek through valleys, lush vegetation and local communities, with chances to see golden monkeys. The excitement will continue with a breath-taking boat ride across the volcanic Lake Mutanda in wooden canoes. Then, it's time to go ape!
We'll venture into Bwindi Impenetrable Forest to track the amazing Nkuringo Gorilla Family Group! Encountering these magnificent and sadly, critically endangered, animals in their natural habitat is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that few will ever get to experience. This vibrant forest is alive with other wildlife too, so look out for birds, butterflies and over fifty different reptile species!
Left with an unforgettable sense of awe, we'll end our adventure by getting involved with a variety of ecological activities for the local community at the Singing Gorilla Project. Choose to help out at a local school, music school or health centre or you might even be able to help the charity install water tanks for the community.
You will be trekking moderate distances but on sometimes difficult terrain and difficult environments. It will be hot and humid in the Bwindi Forest. Day 3 sees us trek up a volcano and so hills should definitely be part of your training regime.
