Let’s go see Endangered Mountain Gorillas in Uganda on a 5-day small group safari with Africa Geographic Photographers Ernest Porter and Karen Blackwood!

We will start in Rwanda with a tour of the Genocide Museum and local craft markets, then transfer to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest for gorilla trekking. We will spend an hour with a relaxed gorilla family that will include the silverback, subordinate males, females of all ages, and if we are lucky, baby gorillas!

Over the next five days, we will have a magical trek with the gorillas, tour the Pygmy village, then head up to Queen Elizabeth Park for a river cruise to watch hippos, crocs, elephants, fish eagles, and look for the rare albino Malachite Kingfisher. We’ll do a game drive or two to look for Ugandan Kob, elephants, African Buffalo, and Uganda’s unique tree climbing lions. An afternoon hike through Bigodi swamp will reveal amazing bird life and primates.

On the last day, we will go to Kibale Forest to trek wild chimpanzees and other primates, including Vervet Monkeys, Blue Hoest Monkeys, and the bright Black and white Colobus Monkeys. Karen’s tender Africa Geographic photo, “Gazing Back,” was taken here. A stop at the Equator will be on the agenda, too, so that you can get that fun photo for Facebook! You’ll fly out of Entebbe that night or the next morning after an amazing trip through the Pearl of Africa.

Price includes your Gorilla and Chimpanzee trekking permits, Park fees, transportation in a SuperComfort safari van, lodging, meals, water, game drives, river cruise, and photography coaching from Ernest and Karen. Maximum 12 fun guests, prices are double occupancy (solo is available, just ask about pricing). Children over 14 are welcome (age limit for trekking).

With under 10 people, price is $2850. Bring some friends and when we get 10 people booked, the price drops to $2550–and we will adjust your balance accordingly! $1000 deposit secures your Gorilla and Chimpanzee Permits. Permits are very restricted and we must ensure that you’ll have a permit to go on the gorilla trek. PM or email us for information and to reserve your spot!

Not included: transportation to/from the trip, lodging before/after the trip (we can help you plan and book everything!), drinks other than water, personal purchases, gratuities, entry visa for Rwanda/Uganda ($100)
