4 Day Uganda Gorillas

(Tour Code UG2)

Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park and Virunga Gorilla National Park (Congo) are on the edge of the western rift valley. Both parks are also rich in birds, chimps, monkeys and butterflies. Bwindi is one of the largest natural forests in East Africa, with both montane and lowland forest. About half of the world's population of mountain gorillas - about 350 animals - are found in Bwindi. Djomba and Bukima in Congo, have their unique features. Seven gorilla families are open to visitors in Uganda (Rushegura, Mubare, and Habinyanja accessed through Buhoma; Ruhija accessed through Ruhija; and, Ishongi, Nkuringo, and Gahinga accessed through Kisoro); six in Congo. Other activities include volcano climbing, guided nature walk in the forest for primates, birds and butterflies or enjoy the breathtaking landscape!

This safari starts from Entebbe [The Bwindi gorilla permit is included in the safari cost]. For those who wish to visit the three natural-habitat gorilla countries of the world Bwindi and Mgahinga in Uganda, Parc National des Volcans in Rwanda, and Virunga Park in Congo, which is on the other side of the misty Virungas please contact us.
