For the thrill of gorilla trekking and visiting these amazing mountain gorillas, you will visit both countries in this 3 days trip. The trip starts from Kigali and takes you to two of the most famous gorilla habitats in the world, Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda and Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, located not far apart from each other, and the trip will bring you back to Kigali for a quick city excursion then you fly out.

The 3 Day Combined Rwanda Uganda Gorilla Tour is a very short safari but the excitement of meeting with the mountain gorillas is immeasurable. Your heart will start beating faster as you trek across fields, hills and slushy narrow paths to reach the thick part of the jungle. As you walk with bated breath, cutting a narrow path in the almost impenetrable and thick vegetation, the excitement builds to a crescendo. The climax is when you are face to face with a huge but gentle silverback Gorilla or see a female gorilla nursing a baby just an arm’s distance away. That moment is bound to be frozen in your mind for life.
