“It is rare when you plan a trip and everything is PERFECT. Our trip to Uganda planned by Donna was excellent. Working with Donna is a reason to book with The Gorilla Safari Company. We have traveled extensively and I have never had a travel agent that followed up so efficiently.”

The name Bwindi means ‘impenetrable’ in the local Runyakitara language and the forest itself is over 25,000 years old. It is certainly not a name given lightly!

The Kibale Forest National Park comprises a range of diverse ecosystems, the largest of these is a tropical rain forest incorporating over 200 different tree species.

Murchison Falls is the largest National Park in Uganda. It is home to an impressive waterfall of the same name and over 100 different species of animals.

The Nyungwe Forest National Park is located in the south-west corner of Rwanda. Nyungwe is one of the oldest forests in Africa, even surviving the ice age.

With over 1978km² of terrain, the Queen Elizabeth National Park is well known in Uganda for its bountiful wildlife and is one of the country’s most popular destinations.

A haven for mountain gorillas in the region, the Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda is also home to five volcanoes that form part of the nearby Virunga Mountains.

“A true once in a lifetime experience seeing the gorillas. Donna organized a great trip to Rwanda and it exceeded all my expectations. Highly recommend making the trip and using The Gorilla Safari Company to help organize it.”

Kibale Forest is the best location for regular and reliable chimpanzee sightings. Our professional guides will lead you every step of the way.

There are large families of endangered Golden Monkeys in the Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda. This is a unique and highly rewarding experience.

Gorilla trekking in Rwanda's Volcanoes National Park and Uganda's Bwindi Forest are without a doubt our most popular activities.

The Nyungwe walkway is over 200 metres long and crosses over a deep valley. As the mist rises up from below it mysteriously shrouds the ancient forest.

An exhilarating day out on the Nile, which boasts “white-knuckle” Grade 5 rapids. This activity is full of adventure and very popular with families.

The National Parks of Tanzania and Kenya offer exceptional wildlife viewing. These locations are easily combined with a gorilla trekking itinerary.
