The 4 Days Gorilla tour in Uganda with double tracking in Uganda is a short Uganda gorilla holiday that allows you to trek mountain gorillas that are critically endangered world over twice. The 4 Days Safari takes you to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park which is 527km about 10 hours’ drive from Kampala stretching to 321km2 at an elevation of 1,160m - 2,607m ASL.

Bwindi National Park gazetted in 1991 and then declared a world heritage site in 1994 supports a minimum of 400 mountain gorillas of which ten groups of these are habituated and dedicated for gorilla trekking in her gorilla trekking regions of Buhoma where Mubare, Rushegura and Habinyanja are found, the Ruhija region where Oruzogo, Bitukura and Kyaguliro are found, Rushaga where Mishaya, Nshongi, Bweza, Busingye and Kahungye are found and eventually Nkuringo where the Nkuringo gorilla family is found.  The gorilla trekking experience takes place in any of these regions and eight people are allowed to track one gorilla group in the company of UWA park ranger guides.

The double gorilla trekking is spiced by the cultural tours with the Batwa and Bakiga people along with the recreational boat cruise and magical sightseeing on Lake Bunyonyi and the Kigezi Highlands respectively.

Day 2 of the 4 Days Gorilla tour in Uganda with double tracking in Uganda: Do gorilla trekking and have an evening performance of the Batwa / Bakiga at the lodge

This is a great day that will mark your re-union with your long lost cousins – the mountain gorillas. You gather at the respective park headquarters for briefing in the morning at 8am where you are also allocated the respective gorilla families to track. From here, you head to the forest in the company of the armed ranger guides that will lead you up the gorillas. The walk is beyond the ordinary as it involves traversing the dense jungle whose thickness would at some points necessitate using a machete to make a path, hiking the challenging landscapes some of which are steep and slippery at times under the canopy of the mature forest which forms darkness even during the day. You are treated to the impressive bird songs and beautiful flowers through the experience. The encounter tends to take 2 – 8 hours depending on the gorilla movements and one hour is availed to you to have a direct touch with the gorillas. Upon approaching gorillas, their reaction is not predictable as it can include them giving you a courteous welcome, minding less about you and charging against you. However, as a result of habituation, Mountain gorillas are always welcoming with the Silverback beating a little of his chest to demonstrate his might and also welcoming to you to the group. The young gorillas are very playful and are at times not aware of the 7m rule thus can try to draw closer to even touching on your body – save it by taking some steps away to observe the distance. You are not limited in any way to ask as many questions about gorillas and their habitats along with taking pictures so long as you have the opportunity to do so. After your one hour with the gorillas, return to the starting point and connect to the lodge for relaxation. In the evening, chilling at the lodge grounds you are treated to a traditional thrill performance of the local Batwa or the Bakiga that live around the park. They have magical songs and dancing styles which definitely make your evening colorful. Accommodation
