Gorillas & Chimps

There are only 2 African destinations offering mind-boggling gorilla trekking expeditions to intrepid travellers where maybe you can also see chimpanzees in their natural habitat. Uganda and Rwanda are two very unique destinations featuring mountainous forests, fantastic views, glorious wilderness areas and charismatic gorillas and chimps! Join Journey in Style on one of the most unforgettable holidays you ever take.
Experience unique sightings of the world’s most endangered ape, Gorilla Gorilla Berengie, or the mountain gorilla when you choose the 6-night gorilla trekking package in the two countries. You will hike through dense vegetation for miles, hours. Starting and ending in Kigali, Rwanda, our Gorillas and Volcanoes package is set within the magnificent Volcanoes National Park, home to some of the last remaining mountain gorillas in the world.
Stay in the luxury Lake Kivu Serena Hotel, then Mountain Gorilla View Lodge next door to the Park. Enjoy hearty home-cooked meals after trekking for hours after these magnificent creatures in their splendid habitat. Moving into Uganda, stay at the amazing Chameleon Hill Lodge to see real gorillas in the mist and get in touch with nature and yourself.  This fancy lodge offers easy access to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, Mgahinga National Park, the Virunga Volcanoes and the Rwandan border. An exclusive retreat to track gorillas!
The 4-night package promises sightings of non-habituated chimpanzees in the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park in western Uganda. As part of your gorilla trekking adventure, you will stay at the naturally chic Silverback Lodge with magnificent views of the valley and lush forests, home to some 350 mountain gorillas, chimpanzees, other mammals, myriad birds and plants. Trek through forests and jungles in small groups with expert guides to view the apes up close.
The final package takes you to the wonderful Mutanda Lake Resort where you have the best of volcano views, mountain magic and gorilla trekking to write home about. Find yourself again in a haven of true natural beauty and serenity and respect the lives of the few gorillas remaining in the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park in southwestern Uganda on the edge of the Rift Valley. Discover one of the most untouched, wildest and most beautiful places left on Earth, home to huge gorillas and tall indigenous trees.
