Comparing Gorilla Trekking in Rwanda and Uganda – Uganda Safari News

For one to be part of gorilla trekking safari in Uganda or gorilla trekking safari in Rwanda, you must be having a gorilla trekking permit.

A Rwanda gorilla permit is costlier at USD1500 than a Uganda permit that costs USD600 for non-residents and USD450 by residents.

If you are to go for Gorilla tracking in Rwanda Volcanoes National Park, the park is just about 125kms from the airport in Kigali, this makes it much easier to be access by road.

For Gorilla trekking in Uganda Bwindi impenetrable forest, you would need 8-10 hours to drive from Entebbe Airport and another 8-10 hours back to the airport, although daily flights are available.

With this prevailing information, you will need at least two days to complete your gorilla tour in Rwanda and 3 days for a Uganda gorilla safari.

Rwanda’s self-importance is in the capacity for one to do the gorilla trekking even in one day and fly back home which is impossible for Uganda.

Other conditions unchanged, Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park has a slight advantage over the rest because its gorillas are the most wholly habituated, and they are often found in bamboo than the dense forest which makes photographing easier.

For a Uganda gorilla safari, you will spend more money on transport and time to track the mountain gorillas in Uganda than it is for Rwanda although this cost is compensated for by a cheaper gorilla permit.

Besides, some sections of the roads to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park are not so comfortable to drive on yet in the case of Rwanda, you drive on smooth tarmac at least up to the Volcanoes National Park head office.
