2 Days Uganda Gorilla Trekking from Kigali
This 2 Days Uganda Gorilla Trekking from Kigali trip specifically takes you to Mgahinga national park or Bwindi Impenetrable. Located in Southwestern Uganda, the park homes quite a good population of the remaining mountain gorillas in the world. It’s one of the few places in the world where visitors get to see these endangered animals in the wild.
This 2 day gorilla safari exposes you to chances for up close encounters with the beautiful giants of the jungle, an experience that is simply one in a lifetime.
Very early in the morning after your breakfast, be picked by our knowledgeable guide who will transfer you to Mgahinga national park. The journey itself is an experience of its own. It furnishes spectacular views of the Virunga chained volcanoes that are shared by the three countries of Uganda, Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
On reaching the park, check in at the lodge, have lunch and some relaxation. In the evening go for a community walk to have an encounter with the Batwa pygmies of the forest. Experience their way of life, taste their local cuisines, enjoy traditional performances and see the world through their eyes.
Day 2: GORILLA TREKKING AND TRANSFER BACK TO KIGALI
Have an early breakfast and head to Mgahinga national park headquarters in order to catch up with the gorilla trekking briefing in time. It is almost a two hour drive to the park headquarters. Here be briefed by the park guide on the dos and don’ts while trekking the great giants of the jungle. Be divided into groups of eight; the accepted number of trekkers to see a gorilla family per day.
Having been briefed, now enter into the jungle to hunt for the endangered creatures of the forest. Trek through thick forest, on slippery grounds, having to hold onto tree branches for support, avoiding thorny trees and somewhere having to pave your way through, just in the name of searching for gorillas.
Finally meet the gorillas in their natural habitats, watch them play with each other, others fighting, lucky trekkers watch adult females breastfeeding the little ones. See the mighty silverback aggressively watch over his family, pounding his chest to threaten away the suspected threats. Take as many pictures as you want provided the camera has no flash as it might scare away the apes.
