About Gorilla Safaris in Africa

Joining a guide gorilla safari conducted in the lush rain forests of Uganda, Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) is the only possible way of watching mountain gorillas unclose in their habitant for a one hour. Visiting mountain gorillas is conducted in a very strict operation to protect the health and habitant of the mountain gorillas. On a single day, a group of 8 people are allowed to go trekking for a single gorilla family, and only allowed one hour watching the gorillas. Revenue generated from gorilla trekking permit sales is the main funding for gorilla conservation project including medication and doctors, security and park protection, researchers, surrounding community projects, hence a single gorilla permit sale, directly protects the lives and conservation of mountain gorilla population in Africa. Today with gorilla tourism growing as many tourists come in to see gorillas, mountain gorilla numbers have ben reported progressively increasing. From the time of Dian Fossey the American primatologist, to today gorilla trekking has become the best thing that has happened to the African gorilla population
