About this event

The Gorilla Adventure is a once in a lifetime trek to Bwindi, home to the mountain gorillas of Uganda. Around 320 mountain gorillas inhabit this highland region of Uganda – approximately half the total remaining in the world!

The challenge offers a varied trekking experience with the added bonus of a possible close encounter with mountain gorillas in their natural habitat. Found in the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, the mountain gorillas are surrounded by an ecological treasure-trove of species that have populated this 25,000 year-old forest.
