Double Gorilla Trekking Uganda – Trek Mountain Gorillas Twice in Uganda

Double gorilla trekking Uganda is used in reference to trekking gorillas twice. On a double gorilla trekking experience, an individual treks gorillas two times on 2 different days. The double gorilla trekking experience can be done either in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park or in Mgahinga Gorilla National Park.

Choosing dates for the gorilla treks can be consecutively and this can either be in one park or sector or in different parks or sectors. In Bwindi Impenetrable National Park for instance there are four sectors which are Rushaga, Ruhija, Nkuringo, and Buhoma.

Therefore, an individual can trek gorillas in one sector today and trek in the other sector the next day. It is also possible to trek gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park one day and then trek another group of mountain gorillas in Mgahinga Gorilla National Park the next day.

Why choose double gorilla trekking in Uganda?

Double gorilla trekking means purchasing two gorilla permits for the two different treks which makes the trip more expensive. However, why would someone choose double gorilla trekking in Uganda? Each mountain gorilla family has different ways of behavior and interaction which makes the group unique to see.

Trekking gorillas twice gives an individual a bigger picture of the way of life of these gentle giants. During each of the treks, you will possibly encounter different characters and unique things from each gorilla family.

Double gorilla trekking gives a total of 2 hours watching gorilla groups interact in different groups, therefore, making it much more rewarding than the single gorilla trek.

If your intention is just to have a double gorilla trekking experience in Uganda without tailoring in other activities, then a 4 Days double gorilla trekking itinerary would be ideal. Here is the highlight of how this trip would look like.
