The Uganda Rwanda border was recently reopened after being closed for a period of close to three years. We have therefore resumed the cross border gorilla trekking trips in which you land in Kigali where we pick you from and then transfer you to Uganda to explore and do some of the exciting activities Uganda has to offer.
There are a lot of activities you can do in Uganda including but not limited to – Gorilla trekking, chimpanzee trekking, Wildlife viewing, Adventure sports, cultural tours and so much more. Our packages which start from Kigali and cross to Uganda range from short 3 day excursions to multi day tours with an option of Ending the trip in Entebbe also available if you don’t wish to return to Kigali after the trip.
Important things to note while planning your crossover trip
Shorter distances for gorilla trekking trips:
The drive from Kigali to Bwindi is 4-5 hours. This is much shorter compared to the 8-9 hours drive if you are starting your trip in Entebbe.
Moderately priced Gorilla trekking permit:
The Uganda Gorilla trekking permit costs $700 while the Rwanda gorilla trekking permit costs $1500, this therefore means that you will save a lot of money if you decide to land in Rwanda but trek gorillas in Uganda.
Lots of activities to do in Uganda
Uganda has many national parks and game reserves as compared to Rwanda. Therefore if you decide to combine your visit to Rwanda and Uganda, you will have a variety of activities to choose from ranging from Gorilla trekking, chimpanzee trekking, white water rafting and kayaking, Game drives, cultural tours and so much more.
