Meet the real Kong

Central Telegraph - - TRAVEL -

FAN­TASY block­buster Kong: Skull Is­land, a re­make of King Kong, was re­leased this month.

Trav­ellers in need of a real-life pri­mate ad­ven­ture should head straight to Uganda’s Bwindi Im­pen­e­tra­ble Forest.

A UN­ESCO World Her­itage Site in south-west Uganda known for its awe-in­spir­ing di­ver­sity, it is also home to fewer than 350 moun­tain go­ril­las, which is more than half the world’s re­main­ing pop­u­la­tion.

Tucked away on a flat ridge deep within the forest, Sanc­tu­ary Go­rilla Forest Camp is the ideal base for your en­counter with Bwindi’s moun­tain go­ril­las. The ex­clu­sive camp com­pris­ing eight tents is fre­quently vis­ited by go­rilla fam­i­lies.

Prices at Sanc­tu­ary Go­rilla Forest Camp start from about $350 a per­son a night based on a three-night stay for two peo­ple shar­ing, in­clud­ing all meals and drinks (not premium brands). Terms and con­di­tions ap­ply.

Per­mits are also re­quired and need to be ap­plied and paid for in ad­vance.
