With the Rwenzori Mountains in the background, this is by far one of Uganda’s most peaceful and extraordinary sights.

Later on , you will continue to Mgahinga Gorillas National Park for two nights. This Park is home to the rare mountain gorillas.

Today after an energizing breakfast, you will embark on your gorilla trek.
