Uganda GorillaTrekking

Encountering the majestic and nearly mythical endangered mountain gorillas, with just around a thousand individuals remaining, is a dream for many.

These remarkable creatures inhabit only two (adjacent) locations worldwide: Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and the Virungas, a chain of volcanoes spanning over 280 kilometers across Rwanda, Uganda, and the Democratic Republic of Congo.

In Uganda, gorilla treks were temporarily halted due to the threat of SARS-CoV-2 infection. However, effective measures have been implemented to mitigate the risk, leading to the reopening of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and the Mgahinga Gorilla Park. COVID-19 restrictions, including social distancing and the use of face masks, are still in effect.
