2 Day Kigali Uganda Bwindi Forest Kigali Gorilla Trekking Safari begins and ends in Rwanda but the actual gorilla trekking activity takes place in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park in Uganda.

The benefits of trekking for Gorillas in Uganda Bwindi Impenetrable Forest from Rwanda Kigali is that Gorilla Permits in Uganda cost 600 US Dollars compared to a permit in Rwanda which goes for 1,500 US Dollars. You save 900 US Dollars per permit alone.

Add to it, the drive from Kigali Rwanda to Bwindi impenetrable forest National Park (home to about 500 members of mountain Gorillas) is about 3 to 4 hours as compared to Entebbe Uganda drive to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest which is 9 hours.

On the Bwindi Forest Kigali Gorilla Trekking Safari, the Southern Region of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and Mgahinga Gorilla Park are easier to access from Kigali than from Entebbe in Uganda. Uganda has two places guests can go to see the mountain gorillas; Bwindi Forest National Park and Mgahinga Gorilla Park.

Both Parks are just 4 hours (including border crossing time) away by road from Kigali – Rwanda compared to the 9 hours when you check-in from Entebbe Uganda, which cuts the distance and the price as well.

Meal Plan: {Lunch & Dinner}

Day 2: Gorilla Trekking in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park – Transfer to Kigali Rwanda
After breakfast we take our packed lunch head to the park headquarters for briefing about gorilla trekking. Your guide will take you through all the dos and don’ts while with mountain gorillas and after that, you will be transferred to the starting point of your gorilla family.

Please note that gorilla family allocation depends on your interests, fitness and age. Please inform your guide of your interests and he will try to request for the gorilla family of your choice before you start the trek into the forest.

Gorilla trekking can be strenuous and a certain level of fitness is required.  Gorilla trekking can take from 30 minutes to three quarters of the day so one needs to prepare for both.

You guide will try to provide information about trees, birds and other wildlife in the forest until you reach a given gorilla family of gorillas. You will be allowed only one hour of photography and observing mountain gorillas as they go about with their daily day activities.

After trek back to the park headquarters to pick your certificates. You will then drive back to Kigali Rwanda through Katuna or Chanika boarder for your overnight in Kigali town or your international departure flight.
