Double Gorilla Trekking Tours Uganda
Enjoy the best affordable double gorilla trekking in Uganda which is a short Uganda gorilla holiday that allows you to trek mountain gorillas that are critically endangered world over twice. The Safari takes you to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park which is 527km about 10 hours’ drive from Kampala stretching to 321km2.
Bwindi National Park gazetted in 1991 and then declared a world heritage site in 1994 supporting a minimum of 400 mountain gorillas of which ten groups of these are habituated and dedicated for gorilla trekking in the 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.
