Program

Day 1

Early morning pick up from an agreed point in Kampala and transfer to Mgahinga National Park, with a quick stopover at the Equator. Check into your camp and enjoy the rest of your afternoon at leisure with a view of the Virunga Volcanic Mountain range in the backdrop.

Day 2

After early morning breakfast, report for your gorilla trek briefing at 7 a.m., a walking distance from your camp, before you set off into the forest. Spend the day tracking down a gorilla family, upon finding them you will be able to spend an hour together with them, observing their behavior.

Packed lunch will be provided for you, and your guide will find a suitable place within the forest for a picnic lunch. Return to camp, and spend the rest of the afternoon at leisure.

Day 3

Enjoy the morning at leisure. After lunch, set off for a three-hour hike on the Batwa Trail. You will get to meet the pigmy tribe that once lived in harmony with the Gorillas, as they demonstrate how they used to live in the forests. Return to your camp for dinner and overnight stay.

Day 4

Spend the day climbing one of the 3 dormant volcanic mountains, within the Ugandan border, of the Virunga range that stretches to Rwanda and Congo. Options include:

  • Mount Muhavura (4,127 meters) - the third highest of the eight major mountains of the mountain range, with a lovely crater lake at the top.
  • Mount Sabyinyo (3,645 meters) - The oldest mountain of the range, with a striking jagged peak. Stand at the summit and be in 3 countries at the same time, Uganda, Rwanda, and Congo!
  • Mount Gahinga (3,474 meters) - The shortest of the set of three in Uganda, which makes for a pleasant climb, with a chance to explore some mountain caves along the way.

Day 5

Check out of Amajambere Camp and transfer to Mutanda Lake Resort, for a leisurely brunch and perhaps morning swim in the beautiful and natural crater lake. Set off back to Kampala by midday, with a few quick stopovers for toilet breaks and snacks. Arrive in Kampala in the evening, drop off at the agreed location.
