Brief Directions

Part of Queen Elizabeth National Park in south eastern Uganda but high up in the Biwindi Mountains. An overnight stay in one of the mountain lodges is usually necessary since the mountain park entrance is difficult to reach even by vehicle.

Description

Uganda is one of the few countries that offers guided mountain gorilla trekking with a permit. It can be arduous at time when the only way to view these magnificant primates is to follow the guides down the mountainside off-trail. This large silverback seemed caught in a pensive moment unconcerned by our presence.
