Visit Mountain Gorillas and Wildlife in Uganda

Mountain Gorillas can only be found in three countries in the wild - Uganda, Rwanda, and Congo. The experience known as Gorilla trekking will take you to the gorilla families in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. These families have gone through a process called habituation, whereby the rangers get them used to human beings, making your presence with them more peaceful. 

 

The gorilla trekking experience is given a full day since it is the one reason why tourists come to Uganda. The ranger guide will take you inside the forest where these animals stay. When you reach their families, you will spend at most one hour observing them, taking as many pictures as you like of these rare apes. Meeting the gorillas in their natural habitat is a breathtaking experience. It is unbelievable to some visitors.

 

Uganda has more to offer its visitors apart from the mountain gorillas. You will also have a chance to visit the chimpanzees in Kibale National Park which is located in western Uganda. Jane Goodall did her research in this forest with its different primate species. Continue browsing through the pages to find out what this country has to offer and how you can arrange your visit. Climax Nature Experience welcomes you to the Pearl of Africa. 

Tourist with gorilla

Uganda is the one of the places in the whole world where you can visit the mountain gorillas in their natural habitat. In most cases, gorillas are visited in places like zoos where they feel uncomfortable and sad. For nature lovers who like to see animals in the wild, here is an opportunity for you. The experienced park rangers will guide you on a trekking expedition that lasts 6 hours on average and will make sure you get the best out of this experience. The gorilla population is shared by Uganda, Rwanda and Congo. But half of the over 800 individuals are found in Uganda, in both Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and Mgahinga National Park.

TheVirunga Mountains

The beauty of this country is derived from its idyllic landscape. Gifted by nature is the right expression. Everywhere you will go, you will notice that this country is green, with hills and valleys, lakes and rivers bringing out the natural beauty that will arouse you to get out your camera to remain with a copy of it. Sir Winston Churchill did not make an error in calling it the Pearl of Africa. When you go to Southwestern Uganda, you will notice that this country is indeed the 'Switzerland of Africa'. Such breathtaking landscape should be the other reason why you should visit this country. The hospitality of Ugandans is the icing on the cake.

Tee-Climbing lions

The 10 national parks of Uganda will entertain you all the time with flora and fauna. Game-drives in any of these national parks will let you see what happens in the wild. Feast your eyes on chimpanzees, lions, leopards, Rothschild's giraffes, antelopes, buffaloes, warthogs, elephants, plains zebras, hyenas, elands, impalas, and different bird species. The animals are naturally distributed in different national parks such that you will always find something new when you visit another national park on your trip. After your trip, you will only tell your friends and families how beautiful Uganda is.
