The number of mountain gorillas has quadrupled in the last decade, thanks largely to conservation efforts of Volcanoes Safaris – the oldest and largest Gorilla trekking operation in the region. At the Mount Gahinga Lodge – located in southwestern Uganda – a 4-day, 3-night package begins as low as $467 per person, per night and includes accommodations, massages, a volcano hike to see the golden monkeys, a chance to meet the Batwa people (a local pygmy tribe that the lodge helps support through volunteer initiatives) and, of course, a gorilla trekking permit to see the famed mountain gorillas in their natural habitat of Mgahinga National Park. Spend a few days more and trek a bit further north to the Kyambura Gorge Lodge for hot air ballooning in Queen Elizabeth National Park.”
