Mountain gorillas are a critically endangered species. Fortunately, we have access to seeing them in East Africa, in neighboring Rwanda and Uganda in the Virunga mountains – this mountain range is the only place where mountain gorillas exist in the entire world!
In Rwanda, Volcanoes National Park is renowned for its gorilla population. In Uganda, they can be seen in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and Mgahinga National Park. We can help you experience an on-foot trek through the mountains to see the lowland gorilla families in any of these parks and help decide which country is best based on the individual travelers in the group.
