For the thrill of going on a gorilla expedition and seeing these incredible gorillas, visit both countries in this 3 Day Combined Rwanda Uganda Gorilla Tour. The trip starts from Kigali and takes you to two of the world’s most renowned gorilla habitats, 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 and your flight back.
Despite being a fairly brief safari, 3days/2nights Gorilla trekking Combo – Rwanda – Uganda is incredibly exciting because it includes a mountain gorilla encounter. As you make your way across fields, hills, and slushy small paths to reach the heart of the jungle, your heart will begin to beat more quickly. The anticipation grows as you make your way through the dense, nearly impenetrable undergrowth while walking with bated breath. The highlight is meeting a large, docile silverback gorilla up close or observing a female gorilla nearby who is nursing a youngster. You’re going to have that image stuck in your head forever. The thrill of trekking Mountain Gorillas in their natural habitat and the humbling experience of coming face to face with them as they feed, play, rest and bond with their young
Viewing the awesome scenic features of the volcanic mountains
Hearing heartbreaking testimonies of the Tutsi Genocide committed in Rwanda in the late 1994.
