“Spotting a wild gorilla in the African jungle is the epitome of a wildlife holidays”–Paul Ebeling
Mountain gorillas are the most majestic and rarest of all non-human primates. Only 700 of these magnificent creatures remain in the world, all of them found in the border area between Rwanda, Uganda and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
A guided gorilla tracking is an awesome experience and worth all the long hall travel efforts. Watch below a clip of a recent gorilla tracking; the clip includes some stunning moments.
- Best time to visit: while gorillas can be tracked all year-long, the best time to track gorillas in Rwanda or Uganda is during the country’s 2 dry seasons: January and February and from June to September.
- Recommended tour operator: Uber Luxe Safaris
