Gorilla Habituation Experience, Bwindi Impenetrable Forest

Hide in the trees and watch. Admire the gorillas and how they behave, the interactions and subtleties that make a gorilla troop seem so much like a human family. 

Keep watching. For four hours you are in the presence of the gorillas, on this exclusive activity led by gorilla conservationists. It takes four or five years to habituate a mountain gorilla troop to human presence. You will be part of this process. 

The group size is just four and the activity must be booked at least six months in advance. With gorilla trekking you spend an hour practically surrounded by a troop. With this gorilla habituation experience you will spend four hours with a troop. 

You won’t be able to get as close, as the gorillas are not fully accustomed to human presence. But with four hours you can discover more behaviours and emotions. Consider combining the two activities for the complete gorilla experience.
