Safari focusing on mountain gorillas, chimpanzees and Uganda’s other endemic primates. Plus lions, forest elephants and much more!
Imagine spending a wonderful day walking through the African cloud forest. The sounds and smells of the pristine jungle fill your senses. Birds fly overhead. Perhaps a few small primates swing in the branches above you. Rounding a corner on the trail your guide calls for quiet. Ahead of you the forest floor is filled with large dark shapes, vaguely human but bigger.
You hunker down and quietly marvel at the troop of Mountain Gorillas – some of the few great apes left in the wild. The gorillas are relaxing, feeding on leaves and grooming each other. There is no hostility but you move slowly and carefully so as not to disturb them. The enormous dominant male silverback comes over to look at you. You can feel his gaze upon you and you look down submissively. Satisfied that you pose no threat to his family, he moves on.
This is the encounter you have dreamed about for so long. The pinnacle of an unforgettable 9 day adventure through Uganda’s many national parks and reserves. You have seen lions sleeping in trees, elephants crashing through the bush, huge troops of playful chimpanzees cavorting in the forest and a dozen other primate species. It has been an incredible trip but this single defining moment will stay with you forever.
