Uganda Gorilla Tracking Safari
A 3 Days Gorilla Safari in search of the endangered mountain gorillas in Uganda's Bwindi Impenetrable forest, home to half of the remaining population of these apes, one of the close cousins to man.
This is a 4 Days Luxury Uganda Safari combining both mountain gorilla tracking and Wildlife tours in lake Mbur National park of Uganda. This gorilla and wildlife safari can also be done on a scheduled basis. The safari will take you to one of Uganda's small savanna national parks, Lake Mburo National Park where you may see different wild animals such as the gigantic eland antelope, topis, impalas, sitatungas, bush duikers, among others. The five lakes within the park also attract hippos, crocodiles and a variety of waterbirds, while fringing swamps hide secretive papyrus specialists such as the sitatunga antelope and red, black and yellow papyrus gonalek.
The safari will later take you to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park where you will track the endangered mountain gorillas. Looking deep into the expressive brown eyes of these gentle giants is surely the most exciting and memorable encounter that you do not need to miss. There are four habituated families of mountain gorillas in the park living in the thicker tropical forests. Tracking from Bwindi is however a more challenging adventurous activity given that it involves you walking on the steeper forested hillsides looking for these great apes. Other residents of the park include birds, monkeys and orchids.
