This 4 Days Gorilla Tracking and Pygmies safaris is an adventure that takes you to Bwindi impenetrable national park the home of mountain gorillas and it gives you a chance to experience the Batwa pygmies culture.

The Batwa are an indigenous group of people lived in the Bwindi forest in Uganda but where later resettled outside the Bwindi forest after it was gazetted a National park in 1991. These group of people where hunter gatherers living in the forest with the mountain gorillas and where the keepers of the Bwindi forest.

After they were settled outside the forest they live in abject poverty with low life expectancy and they have faced challenges changing their way of life from being hunter gatherers to farmers.

This adventure will get you “up close and personal”  with the mountain Gorillas you will get a full hour to observe the Giant primates as they feed , take care of their young ones in the deep misty and impenetrable forest of Bwindi one of the most memorable adventures that you will engage in.

This adventure is the most sought after Africa safaris on the African continent that needs an early booking of the gorilla trekking permit to get guarantee of a spot on the safari.

Gorilla trekking in Uganda is mainly in 2 national parks of Bwindi National Park  and  Mgahinga National Park and most permits sold are the Bwindi impenetrable park because of the inconsistent movement of the mountain gorillas in Mgahinga national park that are difficult to track because of unpredictability of the locations.

The Gorilla permit in Uganda to guarantee your engagement in the 4 days gorilla trekking adventure will cost you US $ 600. Uganda DOES NOT offer discounted permits anymore that used to be offered for the off peak months of   April, May and November that costed US $ 450.

About 72 Gorilla trekking permits are up for grabs everyday for those interested in engaging in the gorilla trekking adventure in Bwindi and trekkers are grouped in numbers of 8 people per trekking group assigned to an armed game ranger per gorilla family.
