Join us for a once-in-a-lifetime journey to observe wild chimps and gorillas in their native habitat, while exploring the montane forest of Uganda and learning about the rich history of this African nation from locals.  

Uganda is home to the largest populations of endangered mountain gorillas spanning the mountainous regions of Rwanda, Uganda and the Republic of Congo. Eco-tourism has been critical in the conservation of this species, funding the creation and management of the National Park, and creating economic gain for local communities further incentivizing local safeguarding of populations. 

Our travels together will be in the dry season of Uganda and the peak viewing season, offering the greatest opportunity to explore the montane forest and the plethora of wildlife, as Bwindi is an ancient forest with over 90 mammal species and 11 primates including the black and white colobus monkey. *This also means permits are highly sought after and are limited to eight individuals per trekking guide. Should you wish to join us, your timely reservation will affirm access (permits are issued on first-come, first-serve basis) and are sold out over a year in advance!  

We hope this extraordinary opportunity is met with as much excitement as we have here in our office. We anticipate this will be a highlight of your global explorations.
