2 Days Bwindi Gorilla Trekking Safari From Kigali

Overview

This is a two-day, amazing Mountain Gorilla trekking trip that begins in Rwanda's "Land of a Thousand Hills" and ends in Uganda's "Pearl of Africa." Mountain gorillas, often known as our Cousins, are one of the world's most isolated primates and the largest primates. They have over 25 sounds and their bodies are coated in fur. Mountain Gorilla trekking is done on foot by a group of no more than 8 individuals per Gorilla family.

Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is located in southwestern Uganda, in the foothills of the huge Virunga Mountain range, which stretches through the Democratic Republic of Congo, Rwanda, and Uganda. It offers a wide range of lodging options, delectable cuisine, accessibility, security, and pleasant weather. Ranger guides will be on hand to help make a dream a reality.

Detailed tour

Day 1: Depart Kigali to Bwindi impenetrable national Park

After arriving safely at Kigali international airport, be greeted by rolling hills and our knowledgeable driver guide who will take you on a memorable safari to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park in Uganda's south western region. You will be greeted and informed about the two-day amazing safari in Uganda's south western region.

Refresh and have lunch on your Kigali city tour, and if time permits, you will visit the Genocide Memorial Site, which is home to almost 25000 victims of the Hutu-Tutsi ethnic strife. After lunch, a 3- to 4-hour trip to any of Bwindi's four sectors provides breathtaking views of the rolling hills, lush foliage, dotted homesteads, and more. You will arrive at the park headquarters late in the evening for registration, then proceed to your lodge for dinner and overnight.

Day 2: Gorilla trekking and Departure

This morning, you'll have a drink of juice or African coffee before driving to the park headquarters for an early morning pre-trekking briefing with the skilled ranger guides. They will go over the dos and don'ts of trekking, assign you to a Gorilla trekking family, and then accompany you on a trek from where they were last seen to where they are believed to be living. Tracking these critters takes about 1-6 hours on foot, with an additional hour spent watching their unique behaviors, such as moms breastfeeding their young, hugs, the silverback's stance, and the games of the young stars.

It's all good times deep in the jungle, with the cameras on high alert. Your lunch break will be in the forests, but not with the gorillas, and you will then return to the lodge for refreshments before departing for Kigali Rwanda's airport. There will be a stopover at the border checkpoint for authorities to verify documents. You have the option of staying in Kigali for the night or flying to your next destination. Mountain gorillas are Man's closest relatives, sharing almost 95% of his genes.
