A new and exclusive experience, spend a day in the jungle observing Uganda's mountain gorilla, and learning about the species. Help researches in this unique opportunity, aimed at saving the species from extinction.
Dedicate a day of your safari experience to the beautiful mountain gorilla. Habituation is the crucial process of spending time with the gorillas in order for them to stop regarding humans as a threat. The process involves different groups of people like the trackers, conservationists, researchers and rangers among others who take a period of about 2 to 3 years completing this habituation experience.
Each gorilla family visited by tourists goes through this process, and you can be a part of it by helping out and learning from researchers about this fascinating species. Your trek will take you deep into the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest known for its thick vegetation and stunning views, in search of your designated gorilla family.
Unlike Gorilla trekking that limits ones interaction with the gorillas to only an hour, Gorilla Habituation allows a person 4 hours in the company of the gorillas, this experience is for those with a real interest in these incredible animals, and a superb way to spend the day!
