Uganda Gorilla Trekking
Uganda Gorilla Safari
Nicknamed the “Pearl of Africa,” Uganda shines with stunning greenery, deep lakes, soaring mountains and perhaps the greatest natural treasure of all - half of the world's last remaining mountain gorilla population. On an A&K Uganda gorilla safari, travel deep into the heart of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and see these incredible, endangered creatures from closer than you ever thought possible.
While other tour operators may get you to Uganda, A&K delivers you into gorilla country: A&K guests lodge in Sanctuary Gorilla Forest Camp, the only camp located within the Impenetrable Forest, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. From this luxurious home base, set off on daily gorilla treks to track down these magnificent mammals at their most natural, a rare sight experienced by only the most fortunate. An even luckier few might see them within the Gorilla Forest Camp - there are no barriers, redefining any close encounter you have ever had with wildlife.
Beyond the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, visit Kibale Forest National Park, known for having the highest primate density of any other region on earth. In Queen Elizabeth National Park, spot plains game, including the rare Uganda kob, Cape buffalo and lions.
Let A&K show you a different kind of gorilla trekking safari in Uganda.
A&K's Recommended Journeys to Uganda
Born to Explore host Richard Wiese visits Sanctuary Gorilla Forest Camp, Uganda, the ideal home base for tracking the vanishing mountain gorillas that live in Bwindi Impentrable Forest. Watch this exclusive video to find out more about the forest, the mountain gorillas, the Batwa pygmies and the camp itself.
With modern health facilities scarce in rural Uganda, A&K Philanthropy (AKP) helped establish Bwindi Community Hospital. A decade later, as the expanding hospital found it difficult to hire nurses, AKP returned to help fund a nurse's training school that's making a profound impact on the community's well-being.
