Gorilla Trekking in Uganda

An amazing trip, a worthy contender for a bucket list.

6 days from £3250pp plus international flights.

A great group lodge-based fly-in safari with gorilla trekking at Bwindi. The perfect introduction to Uganda.

  • Excellent gorilla trekking at Bwindi
  • Option of a second gorilla trek
  • Wildlife watching at Lake Mburo
  • Ishasha community visit
  • Spot tree-climbing lions in Queen Elizabeth National Park

If you mainly want to visit Uganda just to go gorilla trekking, this is the right trip for you. The holiday gives you time for not just one but two opportunities to spend time with the gorillas.

This is a lodge-based group trip with set departures roughly once a month. You have a host who is with you throughout the trip, and your accommodation is in good quality lodges or tented camps.

The holiday includes two domestic flights to reduce the amount of time you spend travelling and optimise your wildlife viewing, and includes game drives in Queen Elizabeth National Park known for its tree-climbing lions. You'll also have chances to visit local communities.
