Hike With Gorillas in Uganda: Backpacking TV Treks Through Wild Mountains

Curious about what sort of trails Uganda has to offer? Get a glimpse at all the country’s opportunities for adventure in this Backpacking TV episode.

Join Backpacking TV for a special series on hiking in Uganda. More specifically, this episode brings tales of hiking with mountain gorillas. Yeah, you don’t want to miss this.

“Hiking through Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable Forest to see the endangered mountain gorillas is a remarkable and powerful experience,” teased the film description. “Not surprisingly, there’s a critical support and conservation infrastructure in place to help protect the gorillas and the local community.”

This film is partly about education and conservation, partly about hiking and travel, and all about all the adventure that awaits.

Run time: 15 minutes. Watch more of the series.

Bonus: If you are looking for an adventure closer to home, Mystery Ranch Packs partnered with host Eric Hanson for a special “backyard backpacking” episode too.
