What gorilla groups can I see in Uganda?
You can visit one of 3 habituated families in Buhoma, in the popular Northern Sector of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest - Mubare, Habinyanja and Rushagura. A 2-hour drive away from this in the more remote Ruhija area of Bwindi, one can trek 3 other families, Oruzogo, Kyaguriro and Bitukura. In the wildest part of Bwindi, in the Southern Sector one can trek the Nkuringo. There are eight permits available daily for each group at a cost of U$600 per permit, per person.
