Mountain Gorillas are undeniably the most unique primate that survive in the forgotten forests of Africa. There are both the mountain gorillas and the lowland gorillas.
Mountain Gorillas can only be found in three countries in East Africa; the Democratic Republic of Congo, Uganda and Rwanda. We currently fully operate gorilla safaris in Rwanda, Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
The western lowland gorilla (Gorilla gorilla gorilla) is one of two subspecies of the western gorilla (Gorilla gorilla) that lives in montane, primary, and secondary forests and lowland swamps in central Africa in Angola, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Republic of the Congo, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Equatorial Guinea and Gabon. We however do not conduct lowland gorilla safaris to most parts of this region this region. At East African Expeditions, we only arrange lowland gorilla tours to Kahuzi Biega National park in Bukavu eastern DRC and this is dependent on the prevailing political situation
In contrast to the six billion human beings living on our crowded planet, there are only about 900 Mountain Gorillas left on the borders of Uganda, Rwanda and Congo. Seeing the mountain gorillas in Africa is an awesome experience.
East African Expeditions organizes gorilla tracking safaris in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and Mgahinga Gorilla National Park in Uganda, Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda, Virunga National park and Kahuzi Biega National in DRC staying at the most unique eco-lodges at these respective parks.
