Unlocking the Perfect Blend of Accommodation and Gorilla Adventure
Embarking on a Gorilla safari in Uganda is a dream for many, and the choice of where to stay can significantly enhance the overall experience. Trek Africa Expeditions offers a unique proposition: Stay in Rushaga and embark on an unforgettable trek to the Nkuringo Mountain Gorillas in the captivating Bwindi Impenetrable National Park.
Uganda proudly hosts Mountain Gorillas in two National Parks: Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and Mgahinga Gorilla National Parks. Among these, Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park takes the lead, attracting travelers from various corners of the globe eager to witness the rare habituated Mountain Gorillas in their natural habitat. Within Bwindi, four distinct Gorilla starting trailheads beckon adventure seekers: Buhoma in the North, Ruhija in the East, and the southern gems of Rushaga and Nkuringo.
Traditionally, the trekking dynamics were straightforward – those staying in Buhoma and Ruhija would trek within their respective regions, while Rushaga residents explored Gorillas in both Rushaga and Nkuringo. However, a paradigm shift has emerged, presenting an intriguing possibility: staying in Rushaga and trekking Mountain Gorillas in Nkuringo.
Rushaga stands out as a preferred accommodation hub due to its diverse lodging options, offering travelers a variety of standards and scenic views. Lodges in Rushaga have garnered positive reviews, making them enticing choices for an overnight stay.

While the hike may pose a slightly higher physical demand, the rewards are abundant.
