Gorilla Habituation Experience in Bwindi Forest Park

What is the Gorilla Habituation Experience?

The Gorilla habituation Experience is a process where wild gorillas are regularly visited by trained habituation personnel to familiarize them to being visited by humans.

Gorilla Habituation involves routine visits  by trained researchers who closely study individual gorillas and best ways to relate to them. With time, these gorillas get used to these researchers and in the long run, each individual gorilla is given a name.

Once researchers are sure that these mountain gorillas can be trekked, they then setup a mock visit where a few people who may include scientists, journalists start visiting it. If the mock visit is successful  then it is opened for trekking.
