Transfer From Kigali To Uganda
Our guide will pick you up from Kigali international airport or your hotel and brief you about your tour. Before your journey to Uganda, you will have an opportunity to tour the city of Kigali and important sites like the genocide war memorial centers. After touring the city, you will embark on a 4 hours drive to Mgahinga Gorilla National Park through Cyanika (Uganda - Rwanda border). After Cyanika you will head to Kisoro a town close to Mgahinga Gorilla National Park .
This journey will give you an opportunity to see the beautiful countryside and landscapes in Rwanda and Uganda. Rwanda has eye-catching rolling hills and plantations while Uganda has dense green forest. Dinner and overnight will be at the Ikoro Hotel with cool views of the volcanoes.
Gorilla Trekking And Departure
You will wake up very early to take breakfast. Our guide will pick you and take you to the park offices where you will be briefed and given information regarding tracking gorillas. You will be assigned a gorilla group and given an opportunity to hire a porter at a cost of 15USD. Your lodge should arrange for you packed lunch and drinking water.
Gorilla trekking takes anywhere from 30 minutes to 6 hours depending on the location of your assigned gorilla family that particular day. Once you spot the gorillas, take as many photos as you can and try to follow instructions from the wardens/guides. After completing the trek, come back to your hotel, freshen up, eat/drink something and checkout. Thereafter, our guide will take you back to Kigali International Airport or your hotel.
