Uganda gorilla trekking

Uganda’s ministry of Tourism Wild life and Antiquities  census 0f 2018 sated that more than half of the world’s mountain gorillas live in Uganda in Bwindi and Mgahinga  gorilla national park The global population of mountain gorillas increased to over 1,063 from the 880 (2011) total divided between the 3 African countries i.e. Uganda, Rwanda and Democratic Republic of Congo.

The Bwindi Impenetrable National Park population is divided into 50 gorilla families and 13 solitary individuals however, only 21 of families are habituated and can be accessed by visitors in 4 tracking regions i.e.; Buhoma, Ruhija, Rushaga and Nkuringo.

Mgahinga Gorilla National Park has one tracking region – Ntebeko, – and Nyakagezi Gorilla Family is the only habituated gorilla group here. This 10 member group used to be migratory and were frequent travelers, taking off for the Democratic Republic of Congo and Rwanda. Fortunately they returned home and have not moved again since 2012 making tourists able to find them on a trek in Mgahinga national park

Gorilla habituation is a process that takes 2 years. During this time gorillas get accustomed to human beings so they remain doing their routine activities in the wilderness even when human beings are present or in the nearby.

According to the Uganda Wildlife Authority conservation rules, only 8 visitors age 15 years+ can be allowed to track each of the habituated gorilla groups per day. That avails over 160 gorilla tracking permits each day along with over 8 for Mgahinga family.

There is nothing like closest or furthest gorilla family when trekking the gorillas. Terrain may be different and the time taken is always unpredictable. Gorillas move to new places every day and never stay in one place twice. A 2 or 3 hour trek today could be 6 hours the next day. Booking your preferred tracking region is possible and done through your preferred tour agency.

Under listed is a list of the 20 mountain gorilla families (2023) for trackers along with their respective Bwindi Impenetrable National Park regions in Uganda.
