Uganda has two gorilla trekking safari destinations namely Bwindi impenetrable forest national park and Mgahinga Gorilla National Park. Bwindi impenetrable is by far the most popular choice since Bwindi impenetrable forest national park offers greater population of mountain gorillas, is better positioned for fly-in trips, and has a wider range of accommodation facilities.
The park you choose to visit will depend on your overall travel itinerary and the amount of time you have. Permit costs and sighting probabilities are identical between Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park and Mgahinga Gorilla National Park. Mgahinga and Bwindi impenetrable forest national parks are located in deep southwest Uganda, close to the borders with Rwanda in the south and the DRC to the west, as you can see from the map on the left.
