We put everything into everything we do!

We have been arranging incredible gorilla trekking safaris to Rwanda and Uganda for our worldwide clients for over 10 years. Our own very first encounter with gorillas stretches further back to 1997 when we first trekked the mountain gorillas in Uganda’s Mgahinga National Park.

The Gorilla Safari Company is founded on a passion for the magnificent Great Apes and diverse wildlife that lives in the protected forests, rivers, lakes and open plains of East Africa. We will never tire of the fact that nothing can quite prepare you for the excitement and awe experienced when you encounter a mountain gorilla face-to-face.

Mountain gorillas are both gentle and imposing at the same time and we guarantee that any fatigue you may feel, after an arduous trek through the forest, will evaporate the moment you set eyes on a mountain gorilla for the first time.

“You must justify why you are on this earth. Gorillas justify why I am here. They are my life.”

Andre Bauma, Ranger at Senkwekwe Gorilla Orphanage

An opportunity to visit the precious few remaining mountain gorillas is more than a holiday, it is a lifetime experience. When you travel with us, you benefit from our depth of experience in this small corner of Africa that we have attained over many years, accompanied by a deep understanding and appreciation of the delicate environments in which we operate.

When we put together a trip for you, we do so with the excitement of our own personal experiences and drawing on our memories to help create your own ultimate wildlife encounter of a lifetime. Every one of our team of professionals and highly experienced guides is totally dedicated to making your dreams come true.

We invest a huge amount of time in continually improving our products and services which not only allows us to deliver exceptional experiences for our clients but also for the benefit of the wildlife and local communities in both Rwanda and Uganda.
