KOFI TRAVEL SAFARIS
3 DAYS MGAHINGA GORILLA TREK SAFARI
This is the smallest Uganda’s National park with (34sq km) where you can trek gorillas,though it harbors less mountain gorillas compared to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park due to the one habituated family having a tendency to duck across the mountains into Rwanda or the DRC. Mgahinga also serves up some challenging, but rewarding treks and an interesting cave, plus a troop of habituated golden-monkey tracking which are endemic to the Albertine Rift and more-or-less restricted to the Virungas, can also be tracked.
