Among the mountain gorillas in the heart of Africa

"In terms of magnificence, variety of shapes and colors, abundance of brilliant life of plants, birds, insects, reptiles and wildlife, Uganda is a true pearl of Africa."

  • UGANDA...

  • ...WITH THE MOUNTAIN GORILLAS.

This saying by Winston Churchill in 1908 still holds true today. It is especially true for this trip, which focuses on meeting the mountain gorillas in one of their last retreats on our planet.

It is a trip that will make your stay in Uganda an extraordinary experience in all respects.

UGANDA
-
The Pearl of Africa is an interesting contrast to the savannahs and short grass plains of Tanzania and Kenya. Here the savannah of East Africa merges into the rainforest of West Africa - a fascinating mosaic of wide plains, dense tropical rainforest, green mountains and crater lakes.

This diversity is reflected in the country's various national parks and reserves, a natural spectacle unlike any other.

Lake Mburo National Park, as its name suggests, is home to an entire lake and the last population of eland to be found in Uganda.

Another protected area is Queen Elizabeth National Park - a real treasure of Uganda. Bordering Lake Edward and Lake George, the park is characterized by savannahs, tropical rainforest, crater lakes and swamps.

Due to the diverse vegetation, elephants, buffalos, hippos, antelopes, baboons and chimpanzees are at home here. One of the special attractions of Queen Elizabeth National Park are the famous tree-climbing lions.

The escape from the predatory cats onto trees, which is shown again and again in various movies, is not really an advisable option here.

Another visit is to Kibale National Park, another part of Queen Elizabeth National Park, which is dominated by tropical rainforest. The park is known for its approximately 1,000 chimpanzees and other primates that roam here.

A good introduction for the absolute highlight of this trip, the arrival...

...WITH THE MOUNTAIN GORILLAS.
-
Almost half of the mountain gorillas on our planet - about 330 out of 600 individuals live in the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest in Uganda.

Visitors to the national park are met by an almost impenetrable jungle.

The dense undergrowth and climbing plants give the jungle here something mystical, eerie.

Trees that seem infinitely tall are entwined with creepers and climbers. Between the dense foliage, colobus monkeys jump from branch to branch and chimpanzee families cross your path in search of fruits and other edible plants.

In addition, of course, there are a large number of different birds. But the most famous inhabitants of this jungle are the mountain gorillas living here.

Currently, Bwindi is home to four gorilla families: Mubare with eight members, Habinyanja with 21 members, Rushegura with 13 members and Nkuringo with 18 members.

Because this gorilla family habitat is under the protection of scientific conservation programs, only a limited number of visitors per day are allowed to go gorilla trekking here.

Nowhere in the world will you have a greater chance to see these impressive primates up close in their habitat.

And a personal vis-a-vis with a silverback has never left anyone cold. Just let yourself be surprised!
