Hiking is a self-rewarding activity that you can engage in at Mgahinga Gorilla and Bwindi Impenetrable National Parks.

Particularly exciting are the Virunga volcanoes in Mgahinga Gorilla National Park. This volcano offers three extinct volcanoes (Mt. Sabyinyo 3669 M Mt. Gahinga 3474 M and Mt. Muhavura 4127 M) for physically fit hikers, special mountaineering gears are not required.

At Mt. Sabyinyo, a hike up the mountain takes one up a ridge along the eastern side to peak 1. If one is to continue, the hike to peak 2 involves walking a ridge with breath-taking drops into gorges of Rwanda and Uganda. Finally, the hike up to peak 3 is steep with several ladders and mush scrambling. You are guaranteed to get your hands dirty en-route to peak 3. Once on top, you will be in Rwanda, Democratic Republic of Congo and Uganda at the same time. The journey takes about eight hours round trip to cover the 14-km stretch.
