Gorilla safaris are the most sought after tourist activities because of the unique experience it offers. Gorillas are endangered primate species which share 98% DNA with humans, making them the closest cousins of Human beings. The gorillas can only be found in three countries; Uganda, Rwanda and Democratic Republic of Congo.
Therefore, gorilla safaris are only extended into these three countries, with Uganda harboring half of the world’s remaining mountain gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National park and Mgahinga National Park. Then Rwanda harbors half of the mountain gorillas in Virunga Mountain ranges protected under Volcanoes National park and the rest of the mountain gorillas live in Virunga National park in Congo.
Gorilla safaris also extend to Kahuzi Biega in Eastern Democratic republic of Congo where there is lowland gorillas, another gorilla specie different from mountain gorillas which live in the montane areas.
