Gorillas And Chimpanzees

Uganda is famous for its highland gorillas, being one of only three countries where they are found and offering the most opportunities to visit them. Looking into the gentle and familiar eyes of a giant cousin is an experience you will never forget, along with the stunning volcanic mountain scenery and the misty atmosphere of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and Mgahinga NP.  Equally memorable are the energetic and verbose chimpanzees of Kibale Forest, Kyambura Gorge and Kalinzu Forest all around Queen Elizabeth NP, and Budongo Forest in Murchison Falls National Park. Chimps screaming and howling through the forest, displaying their power and prowess is an experience that will stay with you.  Buffalo Safari Camps offers short trips to visit gorillas and/or chimps or you can combine the experience with a longer safari taking in the wildlife of the savannah too. Below are some of our most popular trekking safaris from group budget trips to luxury lodge.

On this safari you can couple the magical experience of time spent with a family of gorillas with a night on the shores of Lake Bunyonyi and a big game safari in the tranquil Ishasha sector of Queen Elizabeth NP. Alongside the chance of  topi, elephant, hyena and leopard is another Ugandan oddity; lions up trees!

If time is tight you might want to just do a quick “dash and see” gorilla tracking safari. Naturally this is also the cheapest way to visit our furry cousins, but you can also make this a luxury weekend getaway or include a night on the shores of Lake Bunyonyi or Mutanda.  Whichever option you chose, group or private, budget or luxury, we can arrange the perfect trip for you.
