Uganda is one of only three countries in the world where you can see the highly endangered mountain gorilla in the wild (only an estimated 900 remain). The two gorilla trekking spots in Uganda are Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park and Mgahinga Gorilla National Park. Gorillas don’t pay mind to political borders, so populations across the Virungas are relatively fluid. Uganda has an edge, however, since Bwindi alone is home to half of the world’s mountain gorillas. It is also important to note that unlike its neighbour Rwanda, Uganda has not increased the price of its Gorilla permits, so one can trek twice in Uganda for the price of one trek in Rwanda! The best time for trekking in Uganda is between the months of December to late February, and the months of June to September, as these are the driest months of the year.
