This 3-day Uganda Gorilla safari from Kigali is also for those people interested in trekking mountain gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable forest national park Uganda, but prefer to or are staying in Rwanda. It is also for those who would like to trek Uganda gorillas but prefer a shorter drive time. The drive time from Kigali to Ruhija where you will trek gorillas is only between 5 hours as opposed to the 9 hours drive from Entebbe to Ruhija. So, you can fly into Kigali Rwanda to meet your guide instead of flying into Entebbe international airport. By tracking gorillas in Bwindi impenetrable forests national park, you will be saving over USD 900.00 off each person as opposed to tracking gorillas in Rwanda.
