This 2-day Uganda gorilla tour from Kigali is designed for visitors who want to take the shorter route to Bwindi from Kigali Rwanda rather than the 9-hour journey from Uganda’s Entebbe international airport. The path begins in Kigali, Rwanda, and proceeds through Katuna, Uganda, to the stunning Kigezi highlands, and finally to Ruhija, Bwindi Impenetrable National Park.
Day 1: Kigali, Rwanda to Bwindi, Uganda
The mission Africa Safaris can pick you up at Kigali International Airport or your hotel and provide you with a tour briefing. Until departing for Uganda, you will have the opportunity to tour Kigali and important sites such as genocide war memorial centers. After exploring the region, you’ll fly for 4 hours to Bwindi via Katuna (the Uganda-Rwanda border). You’ll go to Bwindi’s Ruhija after Katuna. This trip will offer you the opportunity to see some of Rwanda’s and Uganda’s most beautiful agriculture and landscapes. Beautiful rolling hills and plantations can be seen in Rwanda, while the Bwindi district of Uganda is covered by dense green forest. For dinner and the night, we’ll be staying at the Gorilla Mist Camp.
Day 2: Gorilla Watching & Departure
To eat breakfast, you would need to wake up really early in the morning. Our guide will meet you at the airport and take you to the park headquarters, where you will be informed and provided information regarding gorilla tracking in Bwindi. A 2-day gorilla tour is available in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. You’ll be allocated to a gorilla squad and given the opportunity to hire a porter for $10 USD. You can be provided with a packed lunch and plenty of water by your hotel. Gorilla trekking will take anything from 30 minutes to 6 hours, depending on the position of your assigned gorilla family that day. If you find the gorillas, take as many photos as you can and try to obey the wardens’/guides’ instructions. After completing the hike, return to your hotel, freshen up, eat/drink something, and check out. Following that, our guide will return you to your hotel or the Kigali international airport.
