This 3 Days Mgahinga Gorilla Tracking package takes you to Mgahinga Gorilla National Park. This national park is another great place to trek gorillas from only that it harbors fewer mountain gorillas compared to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. Most gorilla trekking safaris in Uganda take place in Bwindi more reasons as to why you should try exploring this magical national park that lies along the Virunga Mountains. Gorilla trekking can only be done when one has acquired a gorilla permit, note that in Uganda gorilla permits are allocated according to families and Mgahinga National Park has only one habituated gorilla family. A gorilla permit can only be used once and is only issued by Uganda Wildlife Authority, you can use a tour operator like Oret Tours to help you book your gorilla permit in advance and in time. The minimum age for gorilla trekking in Uganda is 15 years and it requires some bit of energy because these are Mountain gorillas so the forest is hilly. Gorilla trekking can be done all day or if you are lucky you could find your allocated gorilla family in a short time of about 2 to 3 hours.

Itineraries

Day 1

Transfer to Mgahinga Gorilla National Park

You will meet our local guide just prior to breakfast on the first day of your 3 days Mgahinga Gorilla Safari, and then drive off after to southwestern Uganda to Mgahinga Gorilla National Park. We shall have a stopover at the Equator for coffee and some bit of photography. The Equator line separates the northern and southern hemispheres of the world hence, a perfect opportunity for you to take photographs with both legs on different hemispheres of the world. We shall then drive off straight to Kisoro and relax as we prepare for gorilla tracking the following day. Dinner and overnight at Travelers Rest Hotel in Kisoro.

Day 2

Gorilla trekking

The second day of your 3 days Mgahinga gorilla safari covers the main activity, Gorilla tracking. We shall have an early morning breakfast then after proceed to a specified meeting point for pre-briefing before we make our final destination in the jungles of Mgahinga to trek the mountain. Whilst on the activity, we shall trek through the forests and bamboo cover as we search for gorillas. Gorilla tracking is a very physical activity and you might get tired along the way but believe me, there is nothing greater than gazing into mountain gorillas as you take photographs and make physical gestures with them. Dinner and overnight at Travelers Rest Hotel in Kisoro.

Day 3

Travel back to Kampala

After having early morning breakfast on the last day of your 3 days Mgahinga gorilla safari, we shall then embark on our return journey to Kampala as we drive through the beautiful, refreshing grass plains of western Uganda as we look through the hills of the region that was nicknamed “the little Switzerland of Africa”. This area has exceptional and panoramic views that will surely make your morning so refreshing and relaxing! We shall make another stopover at the equator before we proceed to Kampala to catch up with your flight back home.
