Are you ready for the adventure of a lifetime? Trek Africa Expeditions specializes in crafting unforgettable Uganda Gorilla and Big Five safaris from Kigali, Rwanda. Uganda, often referred to as the “Pearl of Africa,” stands as one of the most captivating yet undiscovered tourist destinations in East Africa. This land is graced by nature’s finest, boasting an array of breathtaking national parks, including Kidepo Valley, Murchison Falls, Queen Elizabeth, and Lake Mburo, each offering unique experiences such as wildlife safaris, boat excursions, and the opportunity to bask in the grandeur of Mountain Rwenzori and Mountain Elgon. Other highlights include Gorilla tracking in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and Mgahinga Gorilla National Park, Chimpanzee tracking in Kibale Forest National Park, and serene nature walks to the female and male hot springs in Semliki National Park. Trek Africa Expeditions caters to your specific preferences, ensuring you discover the wonders that Uganda has to offer.
Rwanda and Uganda, two of East Africa’s most stunning countries, beckon with the allure of Gorilla tracking and Big Five safaris. Depending on your travel itinerary, you have the flexibility to start and finish your adventure either in Kigali, Rwanda, or to commence in Kigali and conclude at Entebbe International Airport in Uganda. Kigali International Airport offers a closer gateway to Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and Mgahinga Gorilla National Parks, making it a strategic starting point for your Uganda Gorilla and Big Five safari and ensuring a shorter drive to your destination.
Gorilla tracking is undoubtedly a pinnacle experience for many travelers visiting Uganda and Rwanda. Opting for our Uganda Gorilla and Big Five safari presents a remarkable advantage—the cost of Gorilla permits in Uganda is significantly lower at $700 per person per trek compared to Rwanda’s $1500 per person per trek. While Rwanda may feature slightly pricier accommodation facilities, Uganda remains an affordable and yet less explored gem that boasts a plethora of tourist attractions and activities.
When you choose our Uganda Gorilla and Big Five safari from Kigali, you open the door to a world of unparalleled experiences. Trek the Uganda Mountain Gorillas in the lush Bwindi Forest or the scenic Mgahinga Gorilla National Park. Embark on thrilling game drives in search of the iconic Big Five—Lions, Leopards, Elephants, Buffalos, and Hippos, as well as Nile Crocodiles and an array of bird species in Queen Elizabeth and Murchison Falls National Parks. Additionally, you can track the elusive White Rhinos in Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary. While these incredible animals grace the Ugandan landscape, sightings depend on the natural rhythms of wildlife and a bit of luck.
