How to get to Bwindi impenetrable Forest National Park?, Getting to Bwindi impenetrable forest national park for a holiday begins after you have landed at Entebbe International Airport Kampala Uganda or Kigali International Airport Rwanda.
Kigali-Rwanda is the most liked gateway to southwestern Uganda where Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park and Mgahinga Gorilla National Park are situated. These two parks are the most populated and they possess a huge number of gorilla tracking spots in the pearl of Africa.
The perfect way of getting to Bwindi impenetrable forest national park is either by Air or by Road.
Most of the gorilla safaris to Bwindi impenetrable forest national park start from either Kampala or Entebbe.
Visitors can reach Bwindi from Queen Elizabeth National Park in the north, a journey that takes approximately 2-3 hours from Kabale in the south (1-2 hours).
The roads meet at Butogota, 17km from the Buhoma entrance gate and in these, we recommend a 4×4 safari customized vehicle during the wet season,
The distance and way to Bwindi Forest National Park for gorilla trekking is roughly 9-10 hours driving on the road and about 1 hour and 30 minutes on a flying safari.
There are alternatives of flying a traveler can select from, to fly to Bwindi’s impenetrable forest national park that is either Entebbe International Airport or Kajjansi Airfield. Close to Kampala to Kisoro Airstrip for travelers tracking Mountain Gorillas in the southern region of Rushaga and Nkuringo, while travelers tracking Mountain Gorillas in the northern region of Buhoma fly to Kihihi Airstrip.
From Queen Elizabeth National Park through Kihihi to Buhoma (3-4 hours) Kampala –Ntungamo-Rukungiri-Kihihi-Buhoma(9-10 hours), Kampala through Mbarara city (9-10) hours, Kampala-Kabale-Kanungu (10 hours), we highly recommend a 4×4 tourist vehicle for the journey since the roads are slippery and muddy most especially in the rainy seasons.
Travelers interested in using public transportation can take a bus from Kampala to reach the southern region of Bwindi National Park. The route goes via Mbarara city to Kabale, and then to Kisoro town. Alternatively, travelers can take a bus from Kampala to access the northern part of Bwindi, following the route through Mbarara, Ntungamo, Rukungiri, Kihihi, and finally arriving at Butogota. While on these buses, travelers are advised to remain vigilant about their belongings and keep them within close reach. Clients who always travel by road have a great opportunity to explore the countryside and enjoy the fascinating attractions along the road.
