SPECIAL UGANDA GORILLA SAFARIS FROM KIGALI, RWANDA

Amazing Gorilla Safaris has designed a special initiative to plan, organize and implement special gorilla tour packages to Uganda, designed to meet your perfect Uganda travel expectations. We are well known for exceptional and budget friendly gorilla tours and wildlife safaris in Rwanda, and we are extending this to Uganda in a special way.

The famous Uganda gorilla safaris from Kigali is the best for tourists interested in trekking gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park but are staying in Rwanda through Kigali directly to Uganda Instead of the long drive from Entebbe International Airport. One drives for only 4-5 hours from Kigali to Ruhija instead of the 8-9 hours from Entebbe International Airport to Ruhija.

We have driver guides that pick you from Kigali International Airport or a Hotel in Kigali to start your journey From Kigali to Uganda. This is a very scenic journey and will take you  through a country of a thousand hills (Rwanda) to the Pearl of Africa (Uganda) through Kisoro district.

Booking Uganda gorilla safari from Kigali will save you a lot especially those interested in Rwanda gorilla tours and Uganda in the same Itinerary. Most Clients/travelers prefer this experience because  of the short 2 hour drive from Kigali to Volcanoes National Park compared to the eight hour long drive from Entebbe to Bwindi. This saves time, money as you travel short distance and book short tours to Bwindi Forest like 1 day or 2 days.

Volcanoes National Park Gorilla trekking

Volcanoes national park is a stop center for all Rwanda gorilla tours sheltering the highest number of mountain gorillas in the Virunga Conservation area. The strategic location of the VNP roughly 2 hours drive from Kigali international airport make it the most accessible gorilla national park in the world. Besides gorillas, Volcanoes National park is a home for golden monkeys, a variety of birds, reptiles, amphibians, and insects among other creatures which together make a complete Rwanda safari package.

In 1967, the American zoologist Dian Fossey who had been doing research on mountain Gorillas in the forests of Congo fled from insecurity and established her research base at a place between Visoke and Karisimbi volcanoes that was yet to be known as Karisoke research center. She spearheaded the conservation campaign of the mountain gorillas and mobilized resources to fight against poaching in this area, a fight she put up until her murder in 1985. She was buried at the research center next to the grave of her favorite gorilla called Digit.

In addition to mountain gorillas (Gorilla beringei beringei), Volcanoes national park is home to golden monkeys (Cercopithecus mitis kandti), Spotted Hyena (Crocuta crocuta), buffaloes (Syncerus caffer), elephants, black-fronted duiker (Cephalophus niger), and bushbuck (Tragelaphus scriptus). The park also harbors 178 bird species including at least 29 endemics to Rwenzori mountains and the Virungas. Read More about what to do in Volcanoes…

During your Rwanda gorilla tours, you can also visit Nyungwe Forest National Park that lies in the South Western part of Rwanda at the border with Burundi, and it sits on an area of about 1020 sq.km on an elevation of 1600-2950m above sea level. Nyungwe forest is said to be the largest and best preserved montane rainforest in the whole of East and Central Africa which receive an annual 2000mm of rain. Nyungwe National Park is an important water catchment for Rwanda and contains many natural resources that are quite useful to the Rwandan people. The beautiful green forest is also quite important to two of Africa’s great rivers. Nyungwe Forest National Park harbors habituated chimpanzees and 12 other primates species (including a 400-strong troop of habituated Ruwenzori Black & White Colobus), it’s also a birder’s paradise with over 300 species, including 16 endemics, and is home to 75 different species of mammal.

A trip to Akagera National Park

The relatively warm and low-lying plains of Akagera comprise savannah, woodland, wetland and a dozen lakes. The largely open expanse is ideal for game viewing, and we are taking steps to ensure the Big Five roam the park in greater numbers over the course of time.

A family of lions from South Africa is settling in well, and breeding successfully, and 18 eastern black rhinos have also been reintroduced. Visitors can also encounter buffalo, elephant, antelope, zebra, giraffe, baboons, monkeys, an incredible 490 bird species, plus much more.

A boat trip on Lake Ihema is also a highlight of any visit to Akagera, with its large pods of hippos, Nile crocodiles and abundant waterbirds on the island in the middle of the lake. The only way to explore the park is by vehicle, whether through a tour operator or self drive. The National Park also has a vehicle to hire, with individual spaces available on night drives.

It is recommended to take up the services of a guide, which can be booked through the park. Sleeping within the park is possible, at various lodges, a bush camp in the north at select periods, or camping in specific sites. Read More about activities in Akagera…
