3 Days Uganda Gorilla Trekking from Kigali

From Kigali, a three-day Uganda gorilla trekking safari brings you to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park, with an optional monitoring tour in Mgahinga Gorilla National Park. The trip begins and finishes in Kigali, Rwanda, and mountain gorilla monitoring can be performed in Rushaga, Nkuringo, Mgahinga, Ruhija, or Buhoma since they are closer to Rwanda.

This safari is strongly recommended for tourists who do not want to fly long distances since it is just a four-hour drive from Kigali to Bwindi as opposed to a nine-hour drive with pick-up from Uganda’s Entebbe international airport.
