Uganda’s gorilla habituation experience in Bwindi impenetrable forest National Park was introduced a few years back by the Uganda Wildlife Authority to give tourists and other visitors to get involved in the gorilla habituation process. The gorilla habituation adventure gives tourists a different experience from normal gorilla trekking. Uganda is home to more than half of mountain gorillas whereby over 600 gorillas live in the Bwindi forest.

Bwindi impenetrable forest national park has 4 gorilla trekking sectors and gorilla habituation is only done in a sector called Rushaga sector, this activity involves training wild gorilla groups to get used to human beings’ presence in their natural habitat. This habituation process involves daily visiting the mountain gorilla family that is under habituation by experienced park rangers and professional researchers but now they add 4 tourists daily to enjoy and observe a particular gorilla family until a time this gorilla family learns to tolerate the presence of humans in their natural habitat before its open for normal tourism.

Tourists and other visitors coming for the Uganda gorilla habituation experience must be at the Rushaga sector at 7:00 a.m. for a briefing about the whole habituation process and also take you through major safety procedures to follow while in the Bwindi impenetrable forest to ensure that you get successful 2024/2025 gorilla habituation experience in Uganda.

After the briefing, enter the forest and start to follow the mountain gorilla family that is undergoing the habituation process, This activity is almost a full day activity because once you have found that particular gorilla family you are allowed to spend four hours interacting with the gorillas, to enjoy this activity you must have a good level of physical fitness because the time you spend hiking up and down in the impenetrable forest before reaching the mountain gorillas it makes Uganda mountain gorilla habituation experience amazing and more enjoyable compared to the traditional mountain gorilla trekking whereby tourists are only allowed to only one hour with gorillas.

2024/2025 Uganda gorilla habituation permit costs $1500 per person and you spend 4 hours with gorillas while gorilla trekking permits cost $800 each habituation permits or gorilla trekking permits can be booked through Kisoro Tours Uganda Ltd or directly from Uganda Wildlife Authority head offices. It is always nice to book early enough in advance because as I said habituation permits are limited to 4 per day.
