The population of mountain Gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable Park has increased from 340 in 2006 to 400 in 2012.

This follows a 3 week Gorilla census that was carried out in the park in September and October last year. This means Uganda hosts more than half of the world’s mountain Gorillas, There are 880 Gorillas worldwide.

The Uganda Safari Company arranges safaris to the Gorillas, please take advantage of the low season Gorilla permits that are now going for US$350 each in November 2012, April and May 2013.
