Uganda Mountain Gorilla Safari

Uganda Mountain Gorilla Safari

August 18 - 20, 2019
3 "L" Days

The endangered mountain gorilla can be viewed in two countries, Rwanda and Uganda. We will be going to Uganda and staying at the Sanctuary Gorilla Forest Camp near the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park. This trip is a quick 3 night visit to Uganda to visit one of the gorilla families in this park.

Spend a day tracking endangered mountain gorillas, which share 97.7% of our DNA, spending up to an hour with a family headed by a silver back male. See mothers keeping infants close as they knucklewalk on three limbs. Toddlers scamper around and get reined in by an attentive father, whose job is to protect his family. When you look into the eyes of a mountain gorilla, there is no mistaking the bond that exists between primate and man — and no escaping the poignant reminder that these creatures lie on the brink of extinction.

This trip has been set up as an option to be added to the Kenya Safari August 16 – 25, 2018. But, could also be taken as a separate trip.

Cost $ 4,480 adult sharing. Contact Tom Sedberry in Dhahran at [email protected] or 878 – 2502 or Lou Spencer at [email protected].

This trip is not sponsored by Aramco ExPats or any Saudi Aramco organization.
