2 Days Gorilla Trekking Uganda via Rwanda

Safari Overview: 2 Days Gorilla Trekking

The 2 Days Gorilla Trekking Uganda from Kigali takes you into the foggy Bwindi Impenetrable National Park for a once-in-a-lifetime mountain gorilla trek.

The one-night and two-day Uganda gorilla safari will take you to any of Bwindi’s four gorilla safari sectors: Ruhija, Nkuringo, Buhoma, and Rushaga.

Mountain gorilla encounters are common in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. The park is located in southwestern Uganda and is home to up to 459 of the world’s remaining 1063 mountain gorillas.

There are 20 habituated gorilla families to walk in this magnificent 331-square-kilometer impenetrable forest area, each visited by only 8 visitors. Mountain gorillas are among the 120 mammals found in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park.

Chimpanzees, though not yet habituated by tourists, colobus monkeys, golden cats, black-fronted duikers, buffaloes, elephants, jackals, bats, and 360 birds, including the African green broadbill, share the same habitat as these uncommon creatures.
