Over the years Gorilla Tracking has been the number 1 activity for most tourists who travel to Uganda / Rwanda.
According to census data released by the Uganda Wildlife Authority, there are a few Mountain Gorillas left in the world around half of those live in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest alone. Others can be found in Mgahinga gorilla national park in south-western Uganda.
In Rwanda, they can be found in the Volcanoes national park which borders Uganda, DRC, and Rwanda & Virunga national park in DRC.
Gorilla tracking can be done all year through as it is always cold in the rain forests. However, it’s advisable to travel mid-year as the roads leading to these parks won’t be muddy.
It’s somehow dry in the months of July and August so anyone traveling to Uganda won’t need to be very cautious of the weather.
