Overview for 3 Days Bwindi gorilla trekking from Kigali

This 3 Days Bwindi gorilla trekking from Kigali is meant for those people interested in trekking mountain gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park but are staying in Rwanda.

 

It’s also meant for those that would love to trek Uganda gorillas but want to drive less by flying into Kigali Instead of Entebbe International Airport. 

 

With this 3 Day Uganda Gorilla safari through Kigali - Rwanda, one gets to drive for only 4-5 hours from Kigali to Bwindi National Park instead of the 8-9 hours from Entebbe International Airport to Bwindi National Park. 

 

By tracking gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park instead of Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda, you will be saving USD 900.00 off each person since gorilla permits in Uganda cost US$600 and Rwanda gorilla permits cost US$1,500
