4 Days Double Gorilla Trekking Uganda

This 4-day double gorilla trekking safari does offer a once in a lifetime to see man’s closest relative – mountain gorillas in their natural habitat. This unique package gives an opportunity to experience gorilla trekking in Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable National Park which is home to almost half of the world’s population of these incredible species and Mgahinga Gorilla National Park which are occupied with different gorilla families with differing characteristics.

Double gorilla trekking will require you to purchase two trekking permits which is a bit costly. But the experience is breathe taking since you get to see different gorilla families. Please note that gorilla families behave and have completely different characteristics so being part of this trip, will fully help you understand gorillas.

For each gorilla trekking permit purchased, its an opportunity to get close and observe mountain gorillas for up to an hour and that’s 2hrs if you choose this particular package.
