Bushtracks' Guide to Gorilla Trekking in Uganda
Uganda is home to approximately half of the world’s population of mountain gorilla families – the largest living primates on earth. A recent 2011 census puts the total population in Bwindi at around 400 gorillas, up from 302 in 2006. Bwindi Impenetrable National Park now has as many as 11 habituated gorilla families available for tracking. These families can be tracked from ranger posts in four different locations in Bwindi – Buhoma, Ruhija, Rushaga, Nkuringo. Please see page 6 for Gorilla Family Location Map for their precise locations.
