What species of gorilla you can expect to see on safari

Gorillas make their homes in and amongst the bamboo covered slopes of pristine dense rain forest in east and central Africa

Two of the most accessible places to track gorillas are Bwindi Impenetrable forest in Southern Uganda & Virunga Mountains in the volcanoes national park, northern Rwanda.  Bushtrek Safaris gorilla safari can take you to both these locations. The excitement of the search is followed by the euphoria of the meeting. This makes a gorilla safari a truly thrilling, magical & life changing experience. Although Gorillas often steal the show, on your bushtrek gorilla safari expect to spot a long list of other primates; golden monkeys – these are striking with their bright orange-gold fur -, almost glowing against the green forest home; Chimpanzees – Nyungwe forest, Rwanda, is home to over 400 chimpanzees, often having close encounters with them as soon as you begin your search for gorillas, their distinctive calls means they are hard to miss; Black & white colobus monkeys – these primates along with their relatives inhabiting the palm forests in Zanzibar (Red colobus monkey – endangered) complete Rwanda & Uganda’s big4 primate species.

But the list of cousins continues. with L’Hoest monkeys, red tailed monkeys, blue monkeys, owl faced monkeys, Dents (or mona) monkeys, grey cheeked Mangabeys, Baboons, Vervet monkeys, bushbabies & Pottos
