5 days double gorilla trekking trip to Bwindi and Mgahinga

Many times tourists are not contented with one gorilla trek because the 1 hour allowed to be with the gorillas goes so fast and leaves one still yearning. On this tour you track the gorillas two times, one in Bwindi impenetrable national park and another in Mgahinga Gorilla National Park. Tracking in the two different gorilla parks of Uganda gives a more diverse gorilla experience. Bwindi is a dense jungle on rolling highlands, while Mghinga National Park is the Virunga mountains and the volcanic cones provide a beautiful backdrop to your trek.
