A gorilla walking safari experience is the same as gorilla tracking or gorilla habituation experience depending on how you will chose to call it. Though for the sake of the seniors it will actually be a gorilla walking safari.
Guided walks and treks are offered in many of Uganda’s parks and reserves, the most popular being gorilla tracking in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and chimpanzee tracking in Kibale Forest and Budongo Forest Reserve.
In Bwindi and the forest reserve aside from the gorilla walking safari, you can also do guided walks to spot other primates, as well as butterflies, birds and small mammals. Most of the gorilla walking safaris you need to be accompanied
The Uganda wild life authority has trained personnel in animal protection and management. These ranger guides will accompany you on your gorilla walking safari for either a gorilla trek or gorilla habituation. This takes about 1-4 hours respectively.
