Be amazed on this Safari with the Silverback Gorilla private guided tour in Uganda


Gorilla safari in Uganda: Trekking Gorillas families in Bwindi National Park is the foremost tourist attraction in Uganda, and possibly the best wildlife encounter in the world. Here half the world's population of Mountain Gorillas live in this most diverse rainforest ecosystem. There are other primates here as well; Chimpanzees, Black and White Colobus Monkeys, Blue Monkeys, Grey-cheeked Mangabey and L'hoest Monkeys. In addition, there are 350 bird species, 200 butterflies, 27 species of frogs, 163 species of trees and 100 species of ferns.

Please note: Since Rwanda hiked her gorilla trekking permits, there has been a sharp increase in numbers of people looking at Uganda as a cheaper option for gorilla tours. I kindly request you to book in advance so as I can secure your gorilla trekking permits. Remember there are always limited number of permits issued for conservation reasons.
