Gorilla Trek

A wonderful, unique experience to see some of the 700 remaining gentle giants in their natural environment. The treks currently occur in Uganda, but this can change to either Rwanda or the Democratic Republic of Congo should the local conditions dictate or trekking permits are not available.
