Safari Vacations and Travel Services, Specializes in organizing gorilla safaris from Kigali to Uganda’s Bwindi and Mgahinga impenetrable national parks. This 3 days Uganda gorilla safari from Kigali is meant for those who are in Kigali but would like to track mountain gorillas in Uganda, It is also ideal for those who would not like to spend more hours of driving from Entebbe to Bwindi or Mgahinga but would rather fly to Kigali and then drive to Bwindi. The driving time from Entebbe or Kampala to Bwindi is 8-9 hours compared to 4-5 hours’ drive from Kigali to Bwindi which makes it’s shorter from Kigali to Bwindi compared to starting from Entebbe to Bwindi by road.
Our driver-guide will pick you from the airport/hotel or your residence in Kigali, pass by the Kigali genocide memorial if time allows, and then after driving to Bwindi or Mgahinga gorilla national parks. You will cross through the Katuna border or the Chanika border depending on the location of the park you are going to.
Meal plan: Lunch and Dinner
Accommodation: Rushaga gorilla havens lodge, lake Chahafi resort.
After early morning breakfast, your driver-guide will drive you to the park offices for a briefing which starts at exactly 8:00 am. You will join other trackers from different lodges around the park. The park guide will give you a general briefing about the background of the park and even tell you the gorilla rules and regulations before you head into the forest. Gorillas live in groups; this means that after the briefing you will be allocated to a particular family. The gorilla families live in different locations in the park so the starting points may differ. Some Treks may be easy, medium, or long to trek. Tell your driver-guide about your interests and he will be able to talk to the park warden about it and if possible, you will be helped. After gorilla trekking, you will be picked up by your driver-guide and head back to your lodge.
Meal plan: Breakfast, packed lunch, and dinner.
Accommodation: Rushaga Gorilla Havens lodge, Lake Chahafi resort
After morning breakfast, you will pack your luggage and drive back to Kigali for your stay in Kigali or to the airport for your destination.
