On this dedicated Gorilla photo safari we will spend all our time focusing on photographing the critically endangered Mountain Gorillas in Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable Forest.
For three days we will spend our mornings in the forest looking for and photographing gorillas.
The afternoons will be spent downloading and processing the images from that day during dedicated Lightroom and Photoshop sessions at the lodge during which Gerry will help you to not only get the most out of your gorilla images but also in putting together a solid and diverse portfolio from the safari.
If you’re looking for a photographic safari focusing completely on gorillas get in touch and book your spot on a bucket list adventure that will change the way you see the world!
June 15, 2019 – 20 June, 2019 Expedition: 4 Spaces left.
Note: If there is no number next to the date the safari has been sold out.

Arrival in Entebbe airport and transfer to the Boma Guest House.
After breakfast we will transfer back to Entebbe International Airport for our scheduled flight to Kihihi where we will meet our local guide who will transfer us to Buhoma Lodge. During dinner Michael will run you through a short presentation of logistics, what to expect and share some photographic ideas and inspiration for the gorilla treks ahead.
After breakfast we will make our way to the ranger’s station where we will meet our guide for a full briefing before heading out to the starting point of our gorilla trek. Mountain gorillas are wild animals and, as such, sightings cannot be guaranteed but viewing success rates are over 90%. Once sighted, we will have an hour with the gorillas before making our way back to the lodge. Trek times can vary from 2 to 7 hours and the day’s activities will be arranged accordingly but normally there will be ample time in the afternoon to relax, recharge your batteries, download your images and work with Michael on some processing techniques. Dinner and overnight at Buhoma Lodge.
Another full day on the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest for our second gorilla trek.
Another full day on the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest for our third gorilla trek.
After a breakfast at the lodge we will transfer to Kihihi airstrip for a scheduled flight to Entebbe International Airport from where our trip will come to an end and we connect with our flights back home.
Buhoma Lodge, Bwindi Impenetrable Forsest
Buhoma Lodge, a top quality and intimate property, commands spectacular and uninterrupted views of the Bwindi impenetrable Forest National Park, home to the rare and elusive Mountain Gorilla. One of only two lodges situated within the National Park, we’re a short walking distance from the meeting point for gorilla tracking and other activities in the area. An elevated central lounge area, complete with bar, dining and spa facilities, offers a cosy, comfortable environment to discuss the day’s activities around the fireplaces which add atmosphere and warmth in the cool evenings.
Volcanoes Bwindi Lodge
Overlooking the primeval Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, Volcanoes Bwindi Lodge is the finest luxury lodge at Bwindi. With dramatic intense views of the forest canopy across a serene stream, it is one of Africa’s unique properties. The gorillas frequently come to relax in the verdant bush around the lodge! The lodge is perfectly located for a Uganda jungle gorilla tracking experience..
