Planning for three days gorilla trekking safari to Uganda. Uganda is a top destination for gorilla trekking in Africa, only two destinations offer this exciting activity in the country and that’s Bwindi impenetrable national and Mgahinga gorilla national game park.

Planning for a three days gorilla trekking safari starts with choosing Uganda as your gorilla trekking destination and also agreeing on which national park to do it from. After this is done, a visitor is required to then book a gorilla trekking permit, an official document that allows visitors access to either Bwindi impenetrable or Mgahinga gorilla national park.

However, we at all times advise all visitors to at this point consult with a tours and travel company like Katland Safaris. This makes it easier in booking gorilla permits and putting all your gorilla trekking logistics in order.
