Uganda and Rwanda are located in East Africa and share borders with each other. Uganda also shares her borders with Kenya, Sudan, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Tanzania, while Rwanda shares her borders with Burundi, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Tanzania. Both countries are famous for the magnificent mountain gorilla and each year, draw hundreds of tourists to their national parks and forested areas, to view these magnificent animals which are fast approaching extinction.   


With its remote, unspoilt game parks. Uganda teems with wildlife such as the famed East Africa big game species of lion, elephant and buffalo as well as primates and over a thousand species of birds. Magnificent rivers and parks combine to create stunning views. At Murchison falls, the mighty Nile River bursts through a narrow rock through a chasm in the Rift Valley escarpment to form the raging Falls.

Uganda, Rwanda and the Congo are the only places in the world where you can get to see the famous mountain Gorilla in their natural habitat. Gorillas can be tracked year-round, although they are easier to track in the dry season.  Feeding on nutritious roots, leaves and fruits from the park’s tree and fern species, these tours give you a chance to spend an hour in the presence of these near human creatures.  In addition to the famed Mountain Gorilla, Rwanda is also home to Kibeho. No place in Rwanda does the spiritual struggle meet so intently as in Kibeho, a place which fills regularly with thousands of faithful who walk a hundred miles to get there.

Mountain Gorilla Rwanda

In Rwanda, you may only track gorilla within Volcanoes National Park, a section of the bigger Virunga mountains. Approximately 480 mountain gorillas live in the Virunga complex and reside on the altitude range of 2,300 to 4,500 meters in the southern area of Virunga National Park (in the DRC), as well as the Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda, and some in Uganda' s Mgahinga National Park.

Mountain Gorilla Uganda

The Bwindi forest is a very thick lush tropical forest on steep sided slopes and so tracking the mountain gorilla can be a lot harder going than in Rwanda. It is far more challenging because of the hills and can take anywhere between 3 and 10 hours in total, from start to finish. On the odd occasion, one is lucky enough to find the gorilla quickly, particularly if they are on the lower slopes. Access to the Nkuringo group is on a very steep trail.
