Which is the Best Gorilla Trekking Safari?
Choosing a gorilla trekking safari can be a hustle. Gorilla trekking is a wonderful experience, that allows you to get up close to these gentle giants of the jungle in their natural habitat.
This experience can only be experienced in Uganda, Rwanda & Congo. Around only 600 mountain gorilla still exist today. Although our closest living relatives, ironically, it is man that poses the greatest threat to their survival. For years gorillas have been ruthlessly hunted for their hands and heads, which are sold on as macabre souvenir ashtrays and lamp shades. Additionally, large numbers have been killed whilst trying to stop poachers stealing babies which are illegally sold on to zoos, where their survival rate is low.
Gorilla trekking is a wonderful experience, allowing you the opportunity to have a close encounter with these gentle giants of the jungle in their natural habitat. The trekking will take place either in Uganda for our Overland Safaris and Rwanda on our Gorilla Express tour. You need not feel that you are exploiting these animals by paying good money to go trek to see them in their natural habitat. In fact the ever-growing number of tourists keen to see the gorilla proves to be an important factor in their survival. The gorilla permit fees help to set up and finance patrols that are instrumental in protecting the gorillas from poachers and their lethal snares.
