Whenever possible we prefer to stay at locally owned hotels and partner with creative local guides who represent a diversity of connections. We are always on the lookout for new ways to foster direct engagement and to promote long-lasting relationships with the locals.

For every trip with Gorilla Walking safaris in Uganda, kenya, Tanzania kenya or Rwanda a contribution is channelled towards funding educational empowerment to rural schools. sadly, the local girl child drop out in the rural areas has risen to 42.8% while the orphaned child school dropout has risen to 40.1% in Uganda. For 5 years down the road, we have seen our humble contribution impact positively the orphaned girl child attain Vocational qualifications while five (5) graduating as midwives.

Gorilla walking Safaris is not simply trying to be the most environmentally responsible tour operator in Uganda & East Africa but to continually raise the bar high on sustainability while being examples to other fellow tour operators in Uganda & East Africa.

We Are Carbon Neutral

While we continuously emit carbon dioxide on our transportation vehicles while carrying out our exclusive trips with our Safari Vehicles & during Flying Safaris, We have taken the initiative to calculate the carbon emitted from the adventures as a result from burning fossil fuels, in return, we fund projects that balance an equal amount to what is released during our transportation trips. An Example is our effort to reforestation of native tree species around the rain forests in Uganda.

Mountain Gorilla Coffee. Gorilla Walking Safaris supports former poachers who have apparently resorted to coffee growing as a source of income time since Bwindi forest became a world heritage site. Gorilla Walking Safaris supports a group of farmers in Kisoro region on the boundaries of Bwindi forest as part of our conservation initiatives and income for the local-former poachers hence by protecting the remaining numbers of mountain Gorillas. Our Travelers Visit and take part in an exclusive Farm – to – Cup coffee tour. They also receive a pack of traditionally roasted Mountain Gorilla Coffee beans we’ve purchased for each traveller to take back home.

Travel & offer a Trip: Twice a year at end of each year, Gorilla Walking Safaris positively sponsors school Kids to national parks. Many of these Rural school kids have not seen an elephant or lion and have not even been to a zoo. As part of our social & educative conservation measures, We organise for the rural school kids a 1 day or 2 days trip to a national park so they can see an elephant or lion in the wild while witnessing educative conservation projects. This is in company of an educative ranger guide.

In Addition to the educational support we extend to the school kids, we also believe that educational & Conservation exposure greatly impacts young lives positively.

So when you book a trip with us, You can be rest assured that you will enjoy your trip at peace while knowing you are positively impacting towards an educational & conversational exposure to the young & unable to travel generation.
