# EXPERIENCES - Gorilla Trekking Safaris

Luxury Gorilla Trekking Safaris in East Africa

Roam with Africa’s endangered mountain gorillas

Gorilla trekking safaris offer a unique and awe-inspiring African safari experience, allowing you to observe magnificent mountain gorillas in their natural habitat as they engage in their daily activities. The unfortunate fact that only around 1000 mountain gorillas remain in the world makes this a rare and momentous opportunity to gain insight into their family dynamics. 
Despite the challenges, such as the need for permits and trusted local guides, choosing a reputable travel partner is crucial to ensuring a seamless, worry-free trip. Our team at True Vine Safari is dedicated to taking care of every aspect of your gorilla trekking safari, including navigating remote locations with ease. Moreover, by booking through us, you will also contribute to the conservation and protection of these unique primates. This highly anticipated experience is definitely worth adding to your bucket list, and True Vine Safari is the perfect partner to make it happen.

Where to go

Gorilla trekking is a unique opportunity afforded to tourists seeking to explore the serene and unspoiled landscapes of the Albertine Rift montane forests. Visitors may choose from a select few locations dotted across six East African countries. These include the Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda, the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and Mgahinga Gorilla National Park in Uganda and the Virunga National Park located in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo. 

The Mountain Gorillas, an endangered species, have made their habitat in these dense and shadowy forests; a truly magnificent sight to behold. Trekking to see them is a challenging yet rewarding experience that provides a glimpse into the unique and mysterious world of these gentle giants in their natural habitat.

Visit Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park for a chance to see mountain gorillas and chimpanzees. The conservation efforts have led to a gradual increase in the endangered species, making treks to the ten gorilla groups more accessible to a wider range of ages and fitness levels compared to Uganda. With limited permits per day, book in advance for an unforgettable adventure.
