In Spite of the pricey Gorilla Trekking Prices for Rwanda, Rwanda’s pride is in the ability for one to do the gorilla trek even in one day and fly back home which is impossible for Uganda. Volcanoes National Park is located 116 km from Kigali and can be driven in just 2 hours. On the other hand, Bwindi is located 500 km from Kampala/ Entebbe Airport and a drive can take 8 hours plus. In that sense, you will spend 3 days for your gorilla trek tour in Uganda travelling to Bwindi Gorilla forest.
The distance becomes shorter when a trekker flys into Kigali Airport and picked on arrival by a Tour operator then drives to Uganda via Cyanika border in Kisoro and tracks Gorillas in Rushanga or Nkuringo sectors of Bwindi forest.
The trekker can fly into Entebbe Airport Uganda and flies to Bwindi Forest into either Kisoro Airstrip or Kihihi Airstrip of Bwindi.
