RWANDA & UGANDA GORILLAS & RESPECTIVE GORILLA FAMILIES

About Uganda Gorillas

Uganda Gorillas are found in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park in south western Uganda. Bwindi has half the number of mountain gorillas remaining in the whole world. Bwindi is the only national park in the world where chimps co-exist with mountain Gorillas.

Mgahinga National Park is the other Park where uganda gorillas are found. It is one of the parks in the virunga ranges shared between Uganda, Rwanda, and DRC.

Gorilla tracking is a captivation and unforgettable experience which more than repays the effort needed to reach Bwindi and to trek through the forest. Bwindi has seven habituated gorilla groups that are tracked by tourists. Three of these are in the vicinity of Buhoma and one at Nkuringo.
