Trekking through the African jungles to search for the endangered mountain gorilla family or a community of wild chimpanzees to most holiday travelers is a dream come true. Prior traveling to your favorite destination to engage in any of the two thrilling primate adventures, first, you should prepare adequately.


All persons intending to visit Rwanda or Uganda to see mountain gorillas or chimpanzees should be above 15 years. This safety measure is intended to ensure protection of chimpanzees/gorillas from the infectious diseases. Aside from protecting these great apes from diseases, visitors above 15 years are fit enough to navigate through the tropical rainforest and high elevation for 2-6 hours and return safely.

Unlike other wild animals, gorillas or chimpanzees stay in the tropical rainforests rising at an elevation of about 3000m. Their habitats are characterized by steep slopes with the long adventure not predictable.

Visits to see Rwanda gorillas or Uganda gorillas are done to already habituated gorilla families. Each destination has its habituated families with Uganda consisting of over 21 groups living in the 5 sectors –Ntebeko, Ruhija, Rushaga, Buhoma and Nkuringo. In Rwanda, about 12 fully habituated families all exist for trekking in Volcanoes National Park including Sabyinyo, Susa B and A, Agashya and others.
