6 days Gorilla Adventure

This amazing adventure takes us to Bwindi ‘The Impenetrable Forest’ in Uganda’s mountainous far southwestern tip where you will have the opportunity to track Mountain Gorillas. This action filled excursion will take you also to Mgahinga National Park where you will trek up Mount Sabinyo 3,645m one of the region’s inactive volcanoes. You will have the opportunity to observe another endangered species, the Golden Monkey in its natural habitat of bamboo forest. Local tribesmen will pilot dug-out canoes as we traverse Lake Mutanda.<br><br>Bwindi ‘the impenetrable forest’ home to one of the richest ecosystems in Africa. Mountain Gorillas are one of the world’s most endangered apes. It is estimated that there are only about 880 left throughout the world. Almost half of them can be found in Uganda, and populations can also be found in neighbouring Rwanda and Democratic Republic of Congo.

Fabulous gorilla trekking experience. Great guides (employed by the national park) and wonderful to see these gentle giants in their natural habitat.

Very professional in how they manage the visitors. Be prepared - when they say its mid strenuous it turned out it was strenuous. Recommend getting a porter ($15) - you wont regret it and they are connected to the local village. The gorillas themselves - very humbling.

After Matunda Lake, our next stop was Mgahinga National Park. This time not to see the Gorillas, we wanted to visit the “Batwa”, a local Pygmies tribe. Guided by a park ranger and four Batwa we headed out into the forest where the Batwa’s showed us most of their daily life, from housing to hunting. An interesting day with lots of information.

It was an easy and pleasant trek as gorillas were just 20 mins away from the park gates. The guides were knoelwdgeable and knew how to keep this trip safe. We spend 1h with gorillas. It started in the morning, around 8.30am at the gate, and we were done before 11. It was really great experience.

Mgahinga is small conservation area but visiting this place is worth & no regrets after all Appropriating from Kisoro on a clear weather you will capture magnificent shot of the five Volcanoes in the Virunga ranges As you trek, the gorilla, Golden Monkeys or Hike that I did you will be visit by the other resident (Gorilla or Golden Monkeys, Antelopes, Forest Buffalo or Elephants) if you are lucky. The hike is all interesting in cool weather I will always return can’t get enough of it!
