4 DAYS GORILLA TREKKING IN UGANDA AND RWANDA
This 4-day gorilla trekking package in Uganda and Rwanda is intended for travelers who want to go gorilla trekking in Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park and Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable Forest Park.
One can watch two different gorilla families and compare the group dynamics and behaviors. Each gorilla group has a unique makeup. Some have a higher proportion of females, silverbacks, and people overall.
One group may have a mother with twins, while another may contain solely young juveniles. Rwanda has a more mountainous landscape, and the bamboo forest is the primary food source for gorillas.
On the other side, the majority of Bwindi is covered with tropical rain forest. Let’s talk more specifically about the two national parks, starting with Bwindi.
Day 1: Pick up from Kigali, city tour and transfer to Bwindi National Park
After picking you up from the airport or your hotel in Kigali, our guide will give you a half-day tour of the city. You will stop at a gift shop, the former presidential palace, the genocide memorial center, and the major city market during the tour.
Following the city tour, you will begin the four-hour drive through the breathtaking countryside of Rwanda to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park (green rolling hills and plantations).
You will enter Uganda after passing immigration and then go to your lodge in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park. Rest and get ready for the next day’s gorilla tracking.
Day 2: Mountain Gorilla trekking in Uganda – Visit the Batwa Pygmies
Day 3: Transfer to Volcanoes national park in Rwanda – Visit the Gorilla Guardians Village
You should get up when you feel like it today and eat breakfast as you wait for our driver after yesterday’s initial encounter with the primates. Check out and start your return trip to Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park. Once you get to the resort, lunch will be served. As you wait for the driver to take you to the Gorilla Guardians Village after lunch, you can have a nap at the lodge. When the Center first opened, it was known as the Iby’iwacu Cultural Village, and it served as a site where former poachers could sell tourists souvenirs. The location was renovated by the government, who made it into one of East Africa’s top cultural hubs. You can either dress yourself in the traditional attire or enjoy traditional dance performances during the day.
