Gorilla Tracking

Today is the D-day. You are up relatively early, enjoy a hearty breakfast to give you the energy you will need to track the famed Mountain Gorilla in the Bwindi mists. With your packed lunch, your guide will take you to the ranger station before 8:00 am for registration and briefing by one of the rangers. The guides will then take you through the bush, pushing your way through the undergrowth, parting thick creepers, to track the gorillas. The trek can take from half an hour to 5 hours and a reasonable degree of fitness is required as well as a sturdy pair of walking shoes. Sit in the forest among the gorillas, listening to them grumble, and marvel at the sheer size of the dominant male; the Silverback. It is an extraordinary feeling sitting in the dense rainforest knowing you are with a few of the last remaining Mountain Gorillas. It’s important to note that there are only about 800 of these beautiful creatures left in the wild.

Sarah, United States

Unforgettable Murchison falls & Budongo! We spent 6 day Safari tour days on safari with Harrison our guide/driver from StarMount Safaris. We weren't expecting a welcome party at the airport but there they were; the owner and the guide to give us a warm welcome to Uganda. Booking process was smooth via email, with quick responses and we thought it was a very competitive price having done much research of local tour operators. Everything was meticulously planned; we didn't have to think about park passes, lunch boxes, checking in etc. The guide was amazing, very knowledgeable and we were fortunate to see everything the itinerary said we would see. All in all an absolutely unforgettable trip. Couldn't recommend StarMount Safaris enough! Read more

Matt, United States

Amazing Gorilla Safari tour! We decided to book a safari tour last minute to Bwindi National Park. We contacted 4 tour companies in Uganda and only StarMount Safaris responded to our inquiry. We found them very professional, their response was timely, informative and they offered a variety of options to fit within the budget that we had. The tour was a success and flawless! The tour guide was very knowledgeable and fun to hang out with after the tour. StarMount safaris under sells but over delivers. We had fun and created loads of memories on our 4 day Gorilla Safari tour. I would use them again! Read more
