The gorilla trekking activity is also a marvel as it leads the trackers to hike through the jungles of Virunga ranges. When searching the gorillas the trackers are able to see other wildlife like different bird and tree species and also the monkeys that over the forest canopies and the journey is commentated by a gorilla patron who narrates impressive stories about the national park and the mountain gorillas.

The epitome of the experience come when the mountain gorillas are found and here the tourists spend one hour with gorillas as they interact with them by watching them feed, play around and at times the young gorillas come towards the trackers to play with them.

Safety Tips When Traveling for Outback Safaris

Going out for an outdoor tour often has several aspects to it where most people prefer planning beforehand. The planning includes hotel accommodations, passes to local attractions, booking for local transportation and many others. Apart from that, it involves carrying along necessary requirements such as clothing, medication, guide maps and several other things that may come to use while outdoors. Outback tours are one such outdoor tour that most of us dream of. You not only get to relish delicacies but also get glimpses of the flora and fauna along with the scenic beauty.
If you are being a part of the tours for the first time, it is essential for you to follow a few rules that would help you to have the best experience and thus making you look at things differently.

Loosen up your schedule

While you move out for such tours, keep your schedule flexible where you may get stranded due to heavy rains or long distance travels from one place to the other. This actually allows you to not panic and thus enjoying all that you come across to give you pleasurable surprises with every step that you take.

Own helpful maps of the places you intend to visit

If it is a land that you have never visited before, the only saviour to help you through would be these route maps. They not only help you with the routes to your destination but often have other details such as the local attractions and how you can get the most out of them. Several tour operators allow you to have a planned itinerary and thus helping you to make the most out of the outback tours.

Avoid travelling at night

If you have a schedule fixed for the next destination in your outback tour, avoid night travels. The local people would also suggest you the same. Animals like kangaroos and others are often on the prowl at night and often come out on the road. It would be a distraction to both with at times may lead to a damage to the car and also be fatal for the animal. You could consider an early morning travel which would allow you to have glimpses of the scenic beauty along with reaching the next destination with ease.

Take help from a guide

If you have planned your outback tour through a tour operator, you wouldn’t have to search for a tour guide. They would come along as a part of your itinerary. If you plan to travel individually, it is always safe to hire a tour guide who would not only help you accomplish the motto behind your tour and also help you find the choicest places to visit and also the best food that you could relish on. The guides ensure that you are safe and get the most of what you see around you.

Why Children Not Allowed on Gorilla Safari?

There are few remaining mountain Gorillas in the world. To that note therefore, all possible measures aiming at protecting them (Gorillas) have been set up. Among them is the restriction of children below the age of 15 years, below are some of the reasons why children below is years not allowed to meet Gorillas.

Children are very prone to communicable diseases and can easily spread them to mountain gorillas while on their trek. Disease like Tuber closes, Cold, Ebola among others can easily be transmitted from human to primates and the reverse is true.

You can not predict how the children will react at the meeting with the Gorillas – some of them can cry loud, run, shout among others which can force the gorillas to charge/ upset.

The process is strenuous/ tiresome – children can not endure moving long distance for long hours. Therefore, to enable elders enjoy their trek, children are restricted to go gorilla trekking.

In case of danger, children can not defend them selves- if attached by an animal; children can not run so fast for their lives.

Gorilla trekking trails are slipper – on which children can fall before meeting gorillas.

Grasping gorilla trekking rules and regulation may turn to be hard for children. They can violet them and then make trekking disorganized or incomplete. For example a child may urinate or defecate any where, any how.

Forest pests/ insect bites – some tropical forest harbors mosquitoes, tsetse flies among others. Mosquitoes cause malaria and tsetse flies cause sleeping sickness yet children are highly susceptible to diseases.

Funds paid for gorilla permits are non refundable – in case a visitor doesn’t appear, failure to meet Gorillas, and so on. It is uncertain for the children to meet gorillas. Therefore, buying gorilla permits for the children you are not sure of meeting gorillas is bad.

Challenges to African Gorilla Population

Gorilla trekking is the major tourist activity in Uganda, Rwanda and Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). The activity earns a lot of foreign exchanges to the mentioned nations especially Uganda and Rwanda. DR Congo’s political instabilities hinder smooth running of gorilla tourism in the country but the destination has big gorilla groups in Virunga National Park. However, mountain gorillas are endangered and their population is highly affected b the following;

gorilla-conservation

Political unrest in Democratic Republic of Congo has greatly reduced the number of Mountain Gorillas – seasonal rebel attacks in the order of the day and in the process of chasing them, the DR. Congo army exchange fire bullets with the rebels which some times kill Gorillas in Virunga national Park. Some times rebels do malicious killing of Gorillas to disorganize the country’s economy – that is why tourism in Democratic Republic of Congo is ragging behind among the three countries.

Malicious killing of Gorillas by the local people – some people claim that Gorillas are a threat to the people in the nearby communities – thinking they will kill people, destroy their crops among others so, they find it better to isolate them by killing.

Ignorance of the local people – In the past, responsible bodies in Uganda, Rwanda and DR. Congo did little in sensitizing people about the importance of Gorillas to the economies of their countries. The good news today is that, there are local sensitization campaigns going on in all destinations, aiming at informing the local communities about how they benefit from Rwanda tours especially gorilla tracking in Volcanoes National Park. In this way, the will join the struggle to conserve the gorillas and their natural habitat.
Rampant poaching also reduced the number of Gorillas in their natural habitat. Some people set traps to catch Gorillas and other animals.

Hunting of Gorillas for food – it is believed that some tribe in Democratic Republic of Congo do eat Gorillas. In the process, the number of Gorillas reduces.

Catastrophes or natural calamities like volcanic eruption, floods, and strong winds among others – the 2002 volcanic eruption in Democratic Republic of Congo contributed to the decline of Gorilla population in Virunga region. The eruption of Nyiragongo did not only kill Gorillas but even some few people and their properties perished.

Weak government laws towards the protection of wildlife – some government laws are weak to protect the lives of wild animals and birds where by some poachers are not given serious punishments to curb the habit.

Diseases like Ebola, Cough among others have greatly killed Gorillas while in their natural habitats. In the past, some people go trek gorillas with out advance medical check ups which increased the transmission of diseases from man to Gorillas.

The increasing numbers of predators like Leopard and Python among others. Such predators kill Gorillas leading to the decline in the number of Gorillas.

Fights amongst Gorillas in their natural habitat – during power struggle, male gorillas fight to overthrow others in order to take control of a given Gorilla family. In the fighting process, some weak Gorillas die leading the reduction in the number of Gorillas.

African Jungle Adventures to protect Gorillas in Volcanoes National Park

The main International Non-Government Organization involved in conservation of mountain gorillas is the International Gorilla Conservation Programme, which was established in 1991 as a joint effort of the African Wildlife Foundation, Fauna & Flora International and the World Wide Fund for Nature. Conservation requires work at many levels, from local to international, and involves protection and law enforcement as well as research and education. Dian Fossey broke down conservation efforts into the following three categories:

Active conservation includes frequent patrols in wildlife areas to destroy poacher equipment and weapons, firm and prompt law enforcement, census counts in regions of breeding and ranging concentration, and strong safeguards for the limited habitat the animals occupy.”

African Mountain Gorillas

Theoretical conservation seeks to encourage growth in tourism by improving existing roads that circle the mountains, by renovating the park headquarters and tourists’ lodging, and by the habituation of gorillas near the park boundaries for tourists to visit and photograph.”

Community-based conservation management involves biodiversity protection by, for, and with the local community in practice this is applied in varying degrees. The process seeks equity between meeting the needs of the local population and preserving the protected areas and involves local people in decision making processes.

A collaborative management process has had some success in the Bwindi National Park. The forest was gazetted to National Park in 1991; this occurred with little community consultation and the new status prohibited local people from accessing resources within the park as well as reduced economic opportunities and the number of forest fire was deliberately lit and threats were made to the mountain gorillas.

To achieve this, three strategies were implemented to provide benefits from existence of the forest communities and involve the local community in park management. They included agreements allowing the controlled harvesting of resources in the park, receipt of some revenue from tourism and establishment of a trust fund partly for community development. Tensions between people and park have been reduced and now there is more willingness to take part in gorilla protection.

Surveys of community attitudes conducted by CARE show a steadily increasing proportion of the people in favour of the park. More than that there have been no cases of deliberate burning and the problem of snares in these areas has been reduced. The introduction of ceremonies such as KwitaIzina (in 2005) has also had some impact in drawing attention to gorilla preservation and its importance to local communities.

While community-based conservation bears out individual analysis, there are significant overlaps between active and theoretical conservation and a discussion of the two as halves of a whole seems more constructive. For example, in 2002 Rwanda’s national parks went through a restructuring process. The director of the IGCP, Eugene Rutagarama stated that “They got more rangers on better salaries, more radios, more patrol cars and better training in wildlife conservation. They also built more shelters in the park, from which rangers could protect the gorillas”.

The funding for these types of improvements usually comes from tourism – in 2008, approximately 20 000 tourists visited gorilla populations in Rwanda, generating around $8 million in revenue for the parks. In Uganda too, tourism is seen as a “high value activity that brings enough profits to cover the costs of park management and contribute to the national budget of UWA.“ In addition, the number of visitor arrivals conducted by park rangers also allow censuses of gorilla sub-populations to be undertaken concurrently. Contact African Jungle Adventures for more information / guideline to book a gorilla tour, they are specialists in Uganda Rwanda gorilla trekking adventures, also offer other wildlife safaris, cultural trips, primates tracking and beach holidays around East Africa.

Additionally, other strategies for sub-population conservation can be applied and these include ensuring connecting corridors between isolated territories to ensure movement between them easier and safer.

Amazing safari experience in South & East Africa

Our safari in Southern African combined with Eastern Africa went through countries like South Africa where we visited Cape Town and Kruger National Park, and then to Botswana  where we visited Chobe National Park and Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe. In East Africa, we Masaimara National Park in Kenya, Serengeti National Park and Ngorongoro crater / conservation area through Olduvai gorge in Tanzania. Our trip ended with mountain gorilla trekking in Volcanoes National Park Rwanda. In fact, this was the highlight of our safari in Africa, it was a great privilege for us to see the mountain gorillas in their natural habitat. This is the only place in the world where once can come and see the last remaining population of mountain gorillas in their natural habitat?

Kruger National Park Tour

Cheetahs in Kruger National Park – South Africa

We started with Kruger National Park the largest in South Africa. Kruger Game Reserve is basically a synonym for the word “safari.” Bird life is prolific with over 500 species recorded, 100 reptiles, about 150 mammals, multiple archaeological sites, and a stunningly diversity of trees and flowers, Kruger is South Africa’s flagship national park. Adventurers can explore Kruger National park in a 4×4 Jeep, take a bush walk or fly above in a hot-air balloon. It is such a life time adventure experience in southern part of Africa. There are over 20 National Parks in South Africa but your venture to any of the South African National Parks will transfer you into another world.

Our South African Experience in Kruger National Park was enhanced by our fantastic choice of staying at Lukimbi Safari Lodge. This is 5 star family-friendly lodge in Kruger game reserve.

Victoria Falls in Africa

Victoria Falls offers no shortage of interesting and exciting activities to make any visit to this spectacular destination worthwhile. If you feel the need for adventure, bungee jump off the Victoria Falls Bridge before walking with lions or riding on the elephant back through the wilderness. It was such amazing experience with my Family. Then we continued to East Africa, arrived at Jomo Kenyatta National Park in Kenya.

Masai mara and Serengeti National Parks Exploration (Kenya and Tanzania)

masai-maraThis is one of Africa’s Greatest Wildlife Reserves, and Kenya’s most popular national parks famous for the wildebeests migration. Masai Mara Park is located in south-west Kenya. Together with the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania it forms Africa’s most diverse, incredible and most spectacular eco-systems and possibly the world’s top safari big game viewing eco-system. We had fantastic big game drive in Masai Mara park and Serengeti national Park in Tanzania where saw lots of animals. We also had community tours with local people like the Masai people, and we got involved in local activities like digging, Milking, singing and Dancing among others. It was such unforgettable experience.

In Masaimara National park we stayed at Mara Serena Hotel, Set high on a bush-cloaked hill with fantastic views over the savannah and down to the winding coils of the hippo-filled Mara River, it stands centre-stage to one of Africa’s most dramatic wildlife arenas, with a ringside seat for the ‘greatest wildlife show on earth’, the legendary migration of the wildebeest. In Serengeti we stayed at Kirawira Serena Camp, all were so amazing.

Volcanoes National Park – Home of Mountain Gorillas

Rwanda Mountain Gorillas in Africa

Rwanda Mountain Gorillas

From Tanzania we connected to Rwanda by RwandAir through Kanombe International Airport. This was the last destination on our African trip to Southern and Eastern Africa. Here we had fantastic gorilla trekking experience and golden monkey tracking in Volcanoes National Park Rwanda. The trek in search for mountain gorillas is quiet strenuous and you must be physically fit. However, we managed to successfully do the trek and each of us was awarded a certificate for surviving the trek. We ended with a visit to Gisozi genocide memorial museum in Kigali, Nyamata and Ntarama churches that were gazetted into genocide museums.

We stayed at the Magnificent Virunga lodge, perched high on a ridge, with stunning views of the magnificent Virunga Volcanic mountains and the beautiful twin lakes Bulera and Ruhonda. After such a long safari in Africa, mountain gorilla trekking in Rwanda was the high, and I advise anyone taking a safari into Eastern Africa not to miss this adventurous activity. We traveled with African Jungle Adventures and we booked two gorilla permits for different days and we therefore had 2 gorilla treks with different gorilla families. Special thanks to African Jungle Adventures Limited for organizing such a fantastic trip through Kenya, Tanzania and Rwanda.

What to Know Before Choosing a Gorilla Trekking Destination

These rare and endangered mountain gorillas are found in only three countries in world which are; Uganda, Rwanda and Democratic Republic of Congo. In Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and Mgahinga Gorilla National Parks are the only destinations where gorillas are found in Uganda. In Rwanda and Democratic Republic of Congo mountain gorillas are found in Volcanoes National Park and Virunga National Park respectively.

Gorilla trekking experience and procedures followed are almost the same in all countries however with regards to gorilla trekking fees; charges thoroughly change depending on the tourism board of the each country and some other facts. For example gorilla trekking permit in Rwanda costs USD750, it is more expensive because it’s possible to make a 1 day gorilla trek and the distance from the airport to Volcanoes national park is only 2-3 hours drive. In Uganda a gorilla permit costs USD600, it is cheaper than that of Rwanda because it is impossible to make a 1 or 2 days gorilla trekking trip in Uganda because it takes 8 – 10 hours drive from the Entebbe Airport to Bwindi Forest or Mgahinga Gorilla Park where gorillas are found. In Democratic Republic of Congo, a gorilla permit costs USD450 just for only one reason which is the country is not politically stable and there is a lot of rebel groups in Virunga Forest where gorillas are found the thing which make gorilla trekking in DRC risky.

Also most half of the mountain gorilla population in the world inhabits the Virunga Massif ecosystem shared by Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park, the DRC’s Virunga National Park, and Uganda’s Mgahinga National Park. The rest of the population lives on a separate mountain in Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park. Not like other primate species like; chimpanzees and monkeys that live in captivity mountain gorillas can’t be found in zoo they can only be found in their natural environment.

Uganda offers the most permits with up to 12 gorilla groups and two of them are strictly for research purpose (at most, 96 gorilla permits are given out every day) fallowed by Rwanda with 10 gorillas groups and also two gorilla groups for research purpose, Democratic Republic of Congo has just 5 gorilla groups with only three safe for gorilla trekking by tourists. Then again, to avoid distressing the timid animals, just eight tourists are allowed to visit in each group every day (joined by park rangers and trackers) to hike searching for every gorilla group habituated to human observers sharing about 95% of human genes. In DRC, some of the time six people only allowed to track in every group every day in order to reduce the chances of transferring diseases from tourists to gorillas.

Having a gorilla trekking permit in all countries is a guarantee for trekking mountain gorillas, however sighting them is not a guarantee since they are in their natural environment, they are free to move to different places in search for food, however since they are followed on a daily basis, the possibility of sighting them is around 98%. Gorilla trekking in all countries sometimes seem to be tiresome and hard since in most cases it involve passing through muddy, steep mountain slops for a few hours so a reasonable degree of fitness is required as gorilla trekking, may go from a half to full day and keep in mind trekking gears like sturdy pair of walking shoes, long sleeved shirts or blouses, strolling sticks, this is given to you at the national park headquarters, bottled drinking water and in most cases packed lunch. Once you meet them obviously you will forget all the inconveniences you’ve experienced during the process of searching them and you will be given a maximum of one hour to stay with them while watching and taking photography and are also you remained to keep a distance of 23 feet (7metres) from these animals.

Regarding gorilla sighting Rwanda offers the best clear photography in light of the fact that the upper slopes of volcanoes National Park have open fields and stands of bamboo forest where verdant vegetation is not all that thick. Since Bwindi is almost an impenetrable forest clear view of these animals are not always possible, mothers and baby gorillas can be high up in trees feeding or playing and hug silverback always like to take nap inside dense thickets, obviously on every day you have find gorillas in their habitat and photography can be possible and whatever the case may be gorilla trekking experience remains the same and memorable.

Every country offers all type of accommodation ranging from up market to budget accommodation. Some of the accommodation facilities in Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable Forest include; Chameleon Hill lodge, Clouds Mountain Gorilla Lodge, Lake Mutanda Lodge, Silverback Lodge, Lake Mutanda Lodge, Buhoma Lodge, Gorilla safari Lodge, Ruhija Gorilla Friend Camp. In Volcanoes National Park Rwanda there are accommodations like; Gorilla Nest Lodge, Le Bombou Lodge, Sabyinya Silverback Lodge, Kinigi Guest House. Virunga National Park in DRC there is accommodations facilities like; Orchid safari Lodge, Coco Lodge, Hotel Horizon.

Trekking mountain gorillas is among the most interesting adventurous activities in the world let us hold hands to protect these endangered species, by going for gorilla trekking, you are contributing in the conservation activity because some of the money you pay for gorilla tours goes on the conservation activities, book with us with any gorilla safari in Rwanda, Uganda or Democratic Republic of Congo we hire to take you where you can’t reach by yourself.
