Gorilla Tracking is one of most exciting tour activities in Uganda. There are 2 National Parks in Uganda known for gorilla tracking i.e. Bwindi Impenetrable National Park as well as Mgahinga National Park bordering Congo and Rwanda. Tracking can take from one hour to 12 hours depending on how far the gorillas have moved. A tracking system has been put in place to lessen the time you spent looking for those peaceful giants in the wilderness so that you can know the direction to take while looking for the gorillas.
