Who we are
Gorilla Junction is a Ugandan tour operating company with packaged wildlife safaris deeply rooted in Uganda's cultures, peoples, wildlife, the landscapes.
Gorilla Junction brings you Uganda Safaris; African experiences deeply connected with wildlife, land, people, and cultures.
When in Uganda, you are free to imagine. You leave behind all sense of obligations, commitments, time and drift into its beautiful wilderness. With Gorilla Junction, there's a sense of primal sort of connection and instinct that pervades your senses. Your hearing is sharper; your site is more vivid; you connect with day-to-day life. You don't even notice this feeling of connection. That is the essence of Uganda Safaris.
We came to Kisoro, southwestern Uganda, in 2004 to track the first habituated gorilla family. We instantly fell in love with the rural landscape, the people, conservation programs, and everything connected to gorilla tourism. We opened up a coffee shop in the access town of Kisoro and called it Gorilla Junction. We have grown up here with the people and the wildlife all around us, and that's what spurred my love for the Kigezi rugged southwestern region of Uganda and her gifts of nature.
