Safari the easy way

Pick and mix hundreds of hand-picked lodges to see how far your budget goes.

Coming eye-to-eye with an enormous, hairy primate in the wild is one of life’s most memorable experiences, not least for the trek it might take to reach them! The luscious Virunga Mountains (accessible from Rwanda and the DRC) is the gorilla-trekking spot du jour, but snapping at its heels is Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, home to both gorilla and a remarkable concentration of chimpanzee. And in Tanzania’s Mahale Mountains, chimp-trekking is combined with dhow trips on Lake Tanganyika and G&Ts on the beach. Get involved in the planning of your own Africa gorilla trek online. Mix and match lodges to create a safari that suits your style and budget.

With so much to do and see, planning a gorilla trekking tour can be daunting, but our safari experts will help you create and refine your trip until you’re completely happy.
