Uganda Gorilla And Chimpanzee Trekking Safaris From Kigali Rwanda

Uganda gorilla and chimpanzee trekking safaris from Kigali Rwanda– Africa adventure vacations organize Uganda gorilla and chimpanzee trekking safaris from Kigali Rwanda mainly to cut off the long distance between Entebbe in Uganda to Bwindi or Kibale forest National for gorilla trekking and chimpanzee trekking respectively. Kigali international airport or city in Rwanda is close to most of the parks in southwestern and western Uganda especially the primate parks of Mgahinga a, national park, Bwindi National Park, and Kibale forest national park without forgetting Queen Elizabeth National Park. The distance between Kigali to Uganda is shorter and compared to the distance between Kampala to western Uganda for gorilla and chimpanzee trekking safaris and this has been the major factor as to why visitors chose to use Kigali instead of Entebbe.

One would take 9 to 10 hours from Entebbe to Bwindi impenetrable forest National park or Mgahinga Gorilla National park and other related tourism destinations around the areas whereas only 5 hours are necessary for one to travel to Bwindi and other places of interest from Kigali city /international airport in the Republic of Rwanda.  Another important reason is that Kigali international airport is served by better flight connections compared to Entebbe Uganda with the carrier Rwanda air providing the best flight rates. However, Uganda has also revived its national carrier and it is also offering international flights from and to Entebbe. Lastly is that Rwanda gorilla and chimpanzee trekking safaris are luxurious and expressive and this makes a reason why tourists fly to Rwanda and later connect to Uganda for the cheaper gorilla trekking and chimpanzee trekking safaris.

Advantages of booking Uganda gorilla and chimpanzee trekking safaris from Kigali Rwanda

There are several advantages as to why one should book Uganda gorilla and chimpanzee trekking safaris from Kigali Rwanda. One of the reasons is that it is only in Uganda where one can go and do gorilla and chimpanzee habituation experience nowhere else in the world other than Uganda where these safaris are being conducted, in Uganda, you will find both habituated gorilla families for gorilla trekking and semi habituated gorilla and chimpanzees families for gorilla and chimpanzee habituation experience respectively. You can track Bwindi impenetrable forest National park with the highest concentration of gorillas in the whole world and Kibale Forest National Park with the highest concentration of chimpanzees. All the National Parks are located in the southwestern part of Uganda which is close to Kigali Rwanda.

Additionally Bwindi and Kibale forest national parks are easily accessed by using Kigali international airport and as such visitors are avoiding long road trip distances from Entebbe to Bwindi impenetrable forest National park it is only 4 to 5 to drive from Kigali to Bwindi impenetrable forest national park and then  9-10 hours’ drive from Entebbe to Bwindi so here you can see that one would reduce on the time taken to access the park you can also reach in two countries of East Africa at a time fly to Rwanda and do chimpanzee and gorillas habituation process in Uganda.

Another reason that has fueled the Uganda gorilla and chimpanzee trekking safaris 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.

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,  Mgahinga or Kibale Forest National  are much closer to Rwanda, it automatically and logically becomes viable to fly into Kigali and trek Uganda gorillas and chimpanzees  in the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and Kibale Forest National Park
