Rāhatgarh 3 Days Mgahinga Gorilla Tracking gives you an opportunity to spend 3 days and 2 nights in 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 trekkers wake up very early and start off with a briefing about the gorillas and how to behave when they get close to the gorillas. They are given groups of 8 according to the gorilla family they are going to trek and they start off their trek.
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.

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 mountain. Whilst on the activity, we shall trek through the forests and bamboo cover as we search for of 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.
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”.
