2-Day Gorilla Trekking Safari-Bwindi National Park



This 2-day gorilla trek is one of the best-selling tours available at Lulu Safaris Uganda, given the possibility of trekking gorillas in Uganda within 2 days. The major highlight of the two-day trip is gorilla tracking at Bwindi National Park. The 2-day gorilla trek takes you to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park forests in southwestern Uganda to encounter the mountain gorillas in their natural habitat. The tour is scheduled to start with a pickup in Kigali, Rwanda, followed by a drive to Uganda.


Day 1: Transfer from Kigali, Rwanda to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park in Uganda

Our representative will pick you up in Kigali and drive you to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. The drive to Uganda will go through Rwanda’s northern town of Ruhengeri. You will then cross over into Uganda via the Cyanika or Katuna border post. The trip continues through the nearby Kisoro or Kabale town and Bwindi National Park. The journey from Kigali to Bwindi National Park will take approximately 5 hours. You will arrive at Bwindi National Park in the early afternoon in time to do optional activities such as canoeing at Lake Mutanda, visiting the Batwa community, and having a coffee-making experience. Note: Before driving to Uganda, we can organize a complimentary Kigali city tour (including visiting the Genocide Museum).

Main Destination: Bwindi Impenetrable National Park (Gorillas)
Accommodation: Rushaga Gorilla Lodge
Mid-range lodge located just outside Rushaga
Meals & Drinks: Lunch & dinner (Breakfast not included)
Drinking water (Other drinks not included)
Day 2: Mountain Gorilla Trekking and Transfer to Kigali

You will head to the Bwindi National Park gate immediately after breakfast to get a briefing about the gorilla trek. The national park guide will present what to expect during the gorilla trek. The national guide will assign the gorilla trekking group during the pre-trekking briefing. Other visitors will likely join you. The gorilla trek can take a few or many hours, depending on how far the gorillas are inside the forest.

You will transfer back to Kigali, Rwanda, immediately after the gorilla trekking adventure at Bwindi National Park. Please note that since gorilla trekking can sometimes take more than 5 hours, it is recommended not to book a flight out of Kigali that departs before 10:00 p.m. local time. Note that the Uganda time zone (EAT) is one hour ahead of the Rwanda time zone (CAT).
