Kigali To Bwindi Gorilla Trekking Trips

Are you looking for Kigali to Bwindi gorilla trekking trips? We have discovered that Kigali Bwindi gorilla trekking trips are famous for most of our client who book with us the gorilla trekking safaris in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park.  There are could be several underlying reasons as to why most of the clients prefer gorilla trekking from Kigali tom Bwindi impenetrable forest National Park as compared to those from Entebbe International Airport to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park. There are only 3 countries in the world where you can go and do gorilla trekking safaris and these include Uganda, Congo, and Rwanda. In Uganda, gorilla trekking is only done in two parks of Bwindi and Mgahinga, in Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo, gorillas live in Volcanoes and Virunga National parks respective. All the above-mentioned 4 national parks are close to each other in what is termed as Virunga Massif.

One would be surprised why popular Kigali Bwindi impenetrable forest national gorilla trekking tours yet there are permits in Volcanoes National park in Rwanda a. all this is well answered in my subsequent subheading of this article

Why take Kigali Bwindi gorilla trekking packages/safaris.

One of the major reasons here is the long-distance that visitors pass through when they fly to Entebbe international airport and then proceed to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National park. This long-distance has made most clients opt for Kigali Rwanda gorilla safari tours to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park instead of Entebbe-Bwindi. This distance can be reduced when visitors fly to Kigali and then connect to Bwindi national park for gorilla trekking safaris/trips and thus Kigali international airport is closer to Uganda’s borders of Katuna and Cyanika which eventually leads you to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park.

Another important reason is that safaris from Kigali international airport to Bwindi National Park are affordable as compared to when you buy a gorilla trekking permit from Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda. Of course, there are few countries in the world with Mountain gorillas and therefore when the prices of the permits are high in one country then the visitors will opt for another country like Uganda. For example, the gorilla trekking permits for Uganda are cheaper compared to gorilla trekking permits in Volcanoes National Park, and that why visitors opt to fly to Kigali and then link to Bwindi Impenetrable forest National Park for gorilla trekking safaris.

Another standing reason that has fueled the gorilla trekking safaris in Bwindi from Kigali international airport is the issue of the single East African tourist Visa. This enables visitors to cross borders for gorilla treks very easily. Uganda, Kenya, and Tanzania signed an agreement whereby tourists can use only one visa to visit each of the above countries on the same package and this makes tourists move easily from these countries so fast and effectively.

 Another thing is that Rwanda international airport Kigali has got more international flights and direct flights and this makes the visitors find it easy to book an International flight direct to Kigali international airport. Still, Rwanda has had the national carrier in place as compared to Uganda which has newly revived its national carrier, and thus it became so comfortable to fly to Kigali as compared to when one is flying to Entebbe International Airport and the fact that Bwindi impenetrable National Park is itself much closer to Rwanda, it automatically and logically becomes viable to fly into Kigali and trek Uganda gorillas in the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park.

When to book Kigali to Bwindi gorilla trekking trips

Yes, it’s important to note that all the gorilla safaris from Kigali to Bwindi impenetrable forest National Park must be booked in advance, this means that you should be able to book the trip at least 3 to 4 months in advance. As we said that gorilla permits are core for everyone interested in taking a budget gorilla holiday from Kigali to Uganda and one should book the gorilla trekking permit 3 to four months before the actual safari dates in order not to miss out on this great adventure. Usually, during the low season that happens in April, May, and November, there is no competition and you are free to buy the gorillas permits however during the dry season referred to as the peak season in June, July, August, and September, December, January and February where the gorilla trekking permits are sold very quickly and thus a call for booking of the budget gorilla safari from Kigali to Bwindi in Advance.
