Photo: Gorilla Trekking in Central Africa

Sometimes, saying "I'll never be the same again" is a good thing. Gorilla trekking is a life-changing experience. Little compares to the magic combination of the rainforests of Uganda and Rwanda, up-close views of these endangered animals, and a unique understanding of the 740 mountain gorillas still make their homes in the primeval forests of central Africa. We're sure you'll never be the same after this.
