Gorilla Habituation experience can simply be known as the act of training wild gorillas to become used to the sight of people. It involves different groups of people like the trackers, conservationists, researchers and rangers among others who take a period of about 2 to 3 years completing this habituation experience. It’s a learning experience that has just recently become a stable activity presented by Uganda Wildlife Authority. This experience restricts a maximum of 4 people each day thus bookings for this kind of activity are to be done 12 months prior to the actual habituation day specifically during the months of December all through to March and July to October.
Unlike Gorilla trekking that limits ones interaction with the gorillas to only an hour, Gorilla Habituation allows a person 4 hours in the company of the gorillas. Also, one spends a little bit more USD1500.00 for each person needing to do the habituation experience dissimilar from the USD1200.00 paid for gorilla tracking. Since this kind of experience is hardly existent in Rwanda and or the Democratic Republic of Congo, one can only find it inside the Ugandan borders at the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park.
