UGANDA GORILLA SAFARIS
Nicknamed the “Pearl of Africa,” Uganda shines with stunning greenery, deep lakes, soaring mountains and perhaps the greatest natural treasure of all – half of the world’s last remaining mountain gorilla population. On our Lasi Tours Uganda gorilla safari, travel deep into the heart of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and see these incredible, endangered creatures from closer than you ever thought possible.
While other tour operators may get you to Uganda, Lasi Tours and Safaris delivers you into gorilla country: Lasi Tours guests lodge in Sanctuary Gorilla Forest Camp, the only camp located within the Impenetrable Forest, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. From this luxurious home base, set off on daily gorilla treks to track down these magnificent mammals at their most natural, a rare sight experienced by only the most fortunate. An even luckier few might see them within the Gorilla Forest Camp – there are no barriers, redefining any close encounter you have ever had with wildlife.
Beyond the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, visit Kibale Forest National Park, known for having the highest primate density of any other region on earth. In Queen Elizabeth National Park, spot plains game, including the rare Uganda kob, Cape buffalo and lions.
Let Lasi Tours and Safaris show you a different kind of gorilla trekking safari in Uganda.
