|The Gorilla Adventure 2017|
Trek to Bwindi, ‘The Impenetrable Forest’ home to the Mountain Gorillas of Uganda
This superb trekking itinerary is located in the Ugandan highlands and takes us from the Virunga volcanoes to ‘The Impenetrable Forest’ of Bwindi, home to Uganda’s mountain gorilla population which numbers around 320, approximately half the total number remaining in the world.
Bwindi is located in the south western corner of Uganda where the terrain consists of volcanic mountains and deep valleys and is close to the borders of Rwanda and The Democratic Republic of Congo.
Our Gorilla Adventure Challenge offers a tough and varied trekking experience with the added bonus and ‘must see’ experience of a possible close encounter with mountain gorillas in their natural habitat. Found in the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest the mountain gorillas are surrounded by an ecological treasure-trove of species that have populated this 25,000 year old forest.
Our final destination is the village of Nkuringo located on a hill-top and enjoying spectacular views over Bwindi’s forest canopy and affords visitors magnificent 360 degree unconstrained views of the surrounding volcanoes.
