Gorilla Trekking In Uganda

Gorilla Trekking In Uganda

Posted by Michael Starbuck on 11th Jul 2016

Few adventures are as memorable as seeing an animal roaming in its natural habitat. There is something awe-inspiring about observing legendary creatures, such as mountain gorillas, chimpanzees, lions or elephants. If you’ve ever dreamt of getting involved in conservation, but are also hungry for an adventure, then perhaps gorilla trekking in Uganda is your chance to make those dreams come true.

Uganda is home to more than half of the remaining mountain gorillas in the wild, but conservation efforts to protect their home are more urgent than ever. With climate change, deforestation, poaching, and habitat encroachment threatening from every side, the people who have dedicated their lives to protecting these creatures need all the help they can get. If you choose to go gorilla trekking in Uganda, you will be brought along on a journey into the wilds of the Ugandan cloud forest to track and observe gorillas, and also have the opportunity to interact with local indigenous tribes who must coexist with these animals. By promoting smart conservation practices and sharing your knowledge and passion, you can make a significant impact in the lives and fate of these great apes. In addition to the gorilla trek, this life-changing journey will include work with chimpanzees, safari excursions and boat trips, to come in contact with some of Uganda’s threatened river species.

Supporting conservation efforts on paper or on your social media feed, is one thing, but embarking on this type of adventure goes above and beyond anything you’ve done before. Gorilla trekking in Uganda is your chance to make a tangible difference in a conservation effort that is often overlooked.
