Today you will continue to Mgahinga National Park for two nights. Mgahinga was formed to protect the rare mountain gorillas that inhabit its dense forests. Interacting with these gentle giants is one of the most moving experiences that Africa has to offer and should not be missed! It is also an important habitat for the endangered golden monkeys.

Relax in the evening and get ready for the following day’s gorilla tracking.

Today after an energizing breakfast, you will embark on your gorilla trek. Before 8 am report to the ranger station for registration and briefing by one of the rangers; the guides will then lead you through the undergrowth, parting thick creepers, to track the gorillas.
