THE GREAT GORILLA - Encounter the Endangered Mountain Gorilla

Join us as we track and help in the fight to save one of the world's most amazing creatures, the Mountain gorilla. Decimated by poachers, this magnificent ape is the largest living primate, but tragically only a mere 630 exist in the wild. They are the most endangered of the great ape family and one of the most endangered animals on earth.
One of the most profound natural history experiences in the world.
A small zone where Rwanda, Uganda and the Congo converge is among the few remaining areas where Mountain gorillas dwell. Our adventure begins in Uganda amid bottomless crater lakes, beautiful tea plantations and tropical rain forests and winds it way down a chain of eight volcanoes. As we delve deeper into the African wilds our days will be filled with wild game tracking and overnights in luxurious rainforest lodges and tented camps. Game drives in Queen Elizabeth National Park with the largest concentration of hippo in the world, the best birding in Africa and walks in Maramagambo Forest where bat caves abound are but a few of the awe-inspiring wild kingdom field trips you'll take. As we climb to altitudes exceeding 7,500 feet, the terrain is rough and the hike demanding but once the gorillas are located fatigue is forgotten, time stops, and we live one of the most profound natural history experiences in the world.
