Mountain gorilla trekking in Rushaga (southern sector)

The Rushaga sector in the south of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is special: eight gorilla families have made this green paradise their home, and a few of those are not used to humans yet. During a mountain gorilla trekking tour, you hike over relatively easy trails and spend an hour with the groups used to humans, or four hours with the furry giants not used to seeing you in their natural habitat. Watch the lazy ones eat, the young ones play and the silverback guarding his territory. This truly once-in-a-lifetime experience will leave you in awe forever… and maybe even bring a tear of joy to your eyes.

Additional information

Gorilla trekkings can be a truly amazing experience, but keep in mind that sightings are never guaranteed.

Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is divided into four sectors for gorilla trekking: Rushaga, Nkuringo, Ruhija, and Buhoma.

Which sector to choose?
It depends on your preferences. If you are looking for a more physically challenging sector, Nkuringo and Ruhija are the best. Buhoma and Rushaga are the best if you prefer an easy hike, with Buhoma being more easy to reach but with fewer gorilla groups than Rushaga. Rushaga is also the only sector with groups of habituated gorillas.
