Frequently Asked Questions

May to October

What should I expect on a gorilla tracking excursion?

The day starts really early. You will rise from your cozy lodge nestled amidst the emerald hills of Uganda’s mountainous west. You will then enjoy a hearty breakfast in the lodge’s dining area and proceed to don appropriate clothing in long sleeves and long trousers tucked into your socks for the utmost protection against any nefarious insects and sharp foliage. Upon arrival at the park you will set out on their gorilla tracking excursion, accompanied by experienced guides and trackers. You may come upon pre-arranged clearings, and there, amidst a tapestry of ferns and moss-covered rocks, and there, amid clues of — footprints, gnawed bamboo, dung you might catch a first glimpse of a gorilla family.

What should I pack for my trip to Uganda?

Carry lightweight clothing for warm weather and versatile type fabrics as temperatures may vary during the course of the day. Other useful items could be sturdy hiking boots, insect repellent, sunscreen, a hat, and a reusable water bottle.

What kinds of Gorillas will I see in Uganda?

Uganda is home to half the world’s population of Gorillas and you will get to experience them in their natural habitat.

How can I contribute to the survival of Gorilla Species in Uganda?

Tourism. It finances habitat preservation, anti-poaching and community conservation efforts, assists in the habituation of gorilla families and helps limit the number of visitors and prevent exploitation of the species.

Can a private viewing be arranged with only myself, the guides, and the gorilla?

No. Private gorilla viewings are not offered due to conservation regulations and the need to minimise disturbances to the gorillas and their natural habitat. Gorilla trekking experiences are usually conducted in small groups with a maximum of 6 visitors for one hour per gorilla family, per day. With such a limited time private Gorilla viewing experiences are not possible.

Will I need vaccination before travelling to Uganda?

All travelers visiting Uganda must have received a yellow fever vaccination at least 10 days before their arrival. You must carry an International Certificate of Vaccination issued by your physician, as failure to do so may result into denial of entry. Proof of yellow fever vaccination may also be requested upon departure from Uganda. Furthermore, applicants must upload a copy of their International Certificate of Vaccination when applying for a tourist visa to Uganda.

Can I touch a gorilla during my trek

Touching the gorillas during your trek is strictly forbidden. It’s essential to maintain a safe distance from the gorillas to ensure the well-being and safety of both the gorillas and yourself. While curious creatures, gorillas are still wild animals, and any attempt to touch them can provoke defensive behaviour. It’s crucial to adhere to this rule to ensure a safe and respectful experience for both visitors and the gorillas.
