Enjoy an incredible chance encounter with a troop of wild Mountain Gorillas in Uganda by visiting the private Gorilla Forest Camp near the Bwindi National Park in the southwest of Uganda. This is a beautiful preserved section of mountain rainforest nestled into an agricultural area of Uganda, but fiercely protected by the Uganda Wildlife Authority. Bwindi is home to roughly half of the world's population of endangered Mountain Gorillas - roughly 350 individuals.
