THE ONE THAT GETS YOU UP CLOSE & PERSONAL WITH THE GORILLAS IN UGANDA
You've been in search of the Big Five, now what about the Big Six? On this trip we get up-close-and-personal, trekking deep into the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest Reserve to meet the elusive East African Gorilla. Majestic, mountain-dwelling and pretty darn massive, these magnificent creatures are worth every second of the journey through the Kigezi mountains to find them. With an expert team of gorilla trackers and local guides, a special permit to spend up to an hour with a gorilla family, and an extra game drive at Lake Mburo for wildlife spotting, prepare yourself for the most unforgettable wildlife encounter and once-in-a-lifetime gorilla experience.
Travel is best shared. This is a small group adventure with an open-age group, run by a trusted Contiki partner, giving you the perfect balance of local expertise, authentic experiences, and new friends to travel with.
