4 Days 3 Nights Mgahinga National Park Gorilla Tracking Safari under the 4 Day Kampala Safaris is a gorilla safari adventure taking you for gorilla trekking in Mgahinga National Park.

Mgahinga Gorilla Park is situated southwards of Uganda about 540 kilometers from Kampala (Uganda’s Capital City)and offers activities such as Gorilla tracking, birding, cultural visit, hiking and mountain/ volcano climbing.

The 4 Days 3 Nights Mgahinga National Park Gorilla Tracking Safari wildlife includes mountain gorillas, endangered golden monkeys, black-and-white colobus monkeys, elephants, bushbucks and buffalos.

Your guide will know which areas are most frequented by each species of animal. There are over 115 bird species that have been recorded here, including several endemic to the Albertine Rift.

Ruwenzori turacos, handsome francolins, olive woodpeckers and western green tinker birds are among the species you can hope to spot in the forested hillsides.

Mgahinga National Park is a full day’s drive from Kampala to Kisoro, and a further 30 minutes to the Park entrance. Kisoro is the nearest town.

While it is still warm in the sunshine, Mgahinga’s high altitude means it gets very cold. The nights are very chilly indeed – you will be glad for your lodge’s open fire in the evenings!
