Let’s go see Endangered Mountain Gorillas in Uganda on a 7-day small group safari with Africa Geographic Photographers Ernest Porter and Karen Blackwood!


Over the next seven days, we will have a magical trek with the gorillas in the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest.  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! We will also tour the Pygmy village, head up to Queen Elizabeth Park for a river cruise to watch hippos, crocs, elephants, fish eagles. 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.

We will go to Kibale Forest to trek wild chimpanzees and other primates, including Vervet Monkeys, Blue Hoest Monkeys, the bright Black and white Colobus Monkeys and more. 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!
