On safari in Uganda and planning to visit gorillas in Africa. Don’t miss visiting Mgahinga Gorilla National Park in western part of Uganda. This park is part of the Virunga massifs and here you can experience gorilla trekking safari visiting the Nyakagezi gorilla family and the park is much amazing for gorilla photography experience.
You go bird watching in Mgahinga park in some of its most beautiful scenery in the gorge between Mounts Gahinga and Mount Sabyinyo, through the bamboo forest, and in the montane forest, where the beautiful Rwenzori Turaco may be observed
For generations, Mgahinga dense forest was home to the indigenous Batwa- hunter- gatherers and fierce warriors who depended on the forest for shelter, food and medicine. Now they lead visitors through the forests and introduce them to their old home and the techniques they used to survive in it.
The guide leads you through the gorillas’ world, surrounded by wild forest and impressive bird life, explaining the gorillas’ behaviour along the way. Tracking excursions leave from Ntebeko entrance gate at 8am daily and last between two and four hours.
Hiking and nature walks
Hiking around the foothills of the Virunga volcanoes gives visitors the chance to spot forest birds, the Rugezi swamp, wild vegetation, bamboo forests and glorious views of surrounding lakes and agricultural villages.
Mountain or Volcano climbing
