The third episode of Epic Trails, Season 4 is set to hit airwaves June 17th on Outside TV and Bally Sports Network. The episode is slated to air 71 times to date.

Backpacking Uganda, Part 1 is the first of two episodes filmed in The Pearl of Africa. In this episode, Eric Hanson treks through the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest to see the fabled mountain gorillas.

“Uganda is one of only three countries in the world where mountain gorillas remain in the wild. And while Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo are doing their part to care for these endangered species, Uganda boasts being home to approximately half the remaining gorillas in the wild, as well as the most mountainous and wild terrain in which to experience them”. – Eric Hanson, Uganda: Exploring the Pearl of Africa
