From Kigali, a 3-day Uganda gorilla trekking safari takes you to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park, with an optional Mgahinga gorilla tracking excursion. The journey begins and finishes in Kigali, Rwanda, and mountain gorilla tracking may be done in the Rushaga, Nkuringo, Mgahinga, Ruhija, or Buhoma districts due to their proximity to Rwanda.
This safari is highly suggested for guests who do not wish to travel large distances since the trip from Kigali to Bwindi is just 4 hours long, as opposed to the 9-hour trip from Uganda’s Entebbe international airport.
