Gorilla Trek

Posted on 10 August 2020

Time for a new adventure

The Gorilla Trek has seen hundreds of students come to Uganda to trek from Lake Bonyoni to Bwindi Impentarable National Park where they trekked to see the Silver Back Mountain Gorilla, before returning to Jinja to help build a playground. The trip has been run by East African Playgrounds since 2013 but now is the time for a new an exciting adventure.

For the participants who are on the 2020 postponed Gorilla Trek, the trek will still be provided on their 2021, as has been communicated to you by Shannon and the team. If you are a 2020 Gorilla Trek participant and want more information about this, please get in touch with Shannon directly.

As much as we love the Gorilla Trek, it is time for something newer, more exciting, a bigger challenge and with even more adventure along the way!

It is my honor to introduce to you …
