Gorilla Tracking destination from Kigali

Day 2 - Gorilla tracking day.

Depending on which lodge you slept at, we usually recommend waking up at 6:30am, shower, have your breakfast and walk or drive to the briefing area for your gorilla tracking in Uganda.

Bwindi Forest National Park is home to about 340 Mountain Gorillas which is estimated to be half of the world's gorilla population. Your park warden and ranger guide will point out more facts and history about gorilla tracking in Uganda. You will be assigned a group and join other trekkers to make atleast 8-members and set off for the gorilla trek.

Porters to carry your extra bag, sedan chairs for the disabled, and walking sticks will all be on standby for those who might need them. However, a prior communication will be needed to enbale us prepare well.

We can not predict the time you will take to see the gentle giants of Bwindi forest as this all depends on where they last fed the previous evening. But this all ranges from 1hr to a full day which ends at 7PM. However, with our past records and experience. You will find the gorillas atleast 2hrs from the time you start tracking. And spend 1hr with them while watching,taking pictures and videos. You are likely to be back by atleast 1,2pm. Go for a gorilla graduation ceremony, receive your certificate and head back to your car driving back to your lodge.

We have options for the evening.
  • Relax by your lodge.
  • Drive to Lake Mutanda for an evening canoe ride and have that amazing view of all the volcanoes.
  • Drive to Lake Bunyonyi which is also called the switzerland of Uganda with a canoe ride and see more of the Pearl of Africa.
In any case that you choose to travel to Lake Bunyonyi in your prior correspondencies with our reservations team, the best option for accommodation on this package would be: Buhoma section or Ruhija and the entry back to Kigali would be the Katuna border post not Cyanika.

Dinner and Overnight at your preffered lodge.

Day 3 - Travel back to Kigali.

After our breakfast, we shall head back to Kigali for a city tour and our onward flight.

End of the 3 days gorilla trek from Kigali to Bwindi.
