5 Days Uganda Safari and Gorilla Trekking

Day 1: Kampala/ Mgahinga
Depart from Kampala and drive south west all the way to Kisoro with en route lunch in Mbarara. Enjoy the beautiful scenery as you sit back and admire the Kigezi highlands, the sloppy terraces of Kisoro, thousands of plantations on the road side, views of the Virunga ranges and various lakes. Mgahinga is part of the Virunga Mountains having 3 major peaks Muhavura, Gahinga and Sabyinyo. Though this is the smallest park in Uganda it is richly endowed with a great photogenic scene, various primate species mainly the mountain gorillas, golden monkeys among others plus over 115 bird species including local forest Albertine species. Dine and overnight at Mgahinga Community Campground (budget)

Day 2: Gorilla Tracking
Gorillas are normally present in Mgahinga from October – May and the rest of the year in Rwanda. On a day of tracking wake up early and go in search of the mountain gorillas. It takes about 3 or 5 hours as given the small size of the park. Spend an hour or two with these highly endangered species as you learn a few things about them. Return to Mgahinga Community Campground.

Day 3: Golden Monkey Tracking /Hiking
You may go for golden monkey tracking alongside other primates or you can go hiking on any of the volcanic peaks of your choice. This requires fitness and an early start. Go for a least stressing hike on Gahinga which also offers a chance of spotting golden monkeys and forest birds. Or you can hike Muhabura the highest peak in about nine hours.  Another option is the Batwa trail – enjoy their cultural dance and drama. Relax and dine at Mgahinga Community Campground.

Day 4: Return to Kampala
Enjoy breakfast and drive to back to Kampala. Stop for lunch in Mbarara on your way. This marks the end of this trip.
