Gorilla trekking in Uganda was not in existence before the year 1993 when the Mubare gorilla family was officially introduced for that every encounter inspiring many travellers to undertake gorilla safaris in Uganda.

Buhoma in the north of Bwindi was the first region to develop the gorilla tracking activity something that it dominated for a couple of years before emergence of other areas like Ruhija, Rushaga and Nkuringo with habituated gorilla families presenting more options for gorilla safari tours in Uganda.

Buhoma sector has got three habituated gorilla families namely; Habinyanja, Rushegura and Mubare that have got the capacity of taking up to 24 gorilla trekkers per day.

Due to its pioneer position, Buhoma attracted more tourism investments including accommodation units for gorilla safari undertakers compared to other regions of Bwindi.

In addition to a wide range of accommodation, Buhoma sector has got an easy connection to other famous destination that is always encountered on safari tours in Uganda – Queen Elizabeth National Park a reason that explains why its gorilla permits are so competed for by Uganda gorilla trekking safari tour undertakers.
