How to get to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park

Getting to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest for Gorilla Trekking in Uganda

The 4 Ways of Getting to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest for Gorilla Trekking 

  • Drive to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest from Entebbe

Transferring to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park from Entebbe will take you about 9-10 hrs. This is done each day by travelers to Uganda by the help and guidance of a Ugandan Tour Company. The transfer to or from this park (Bwindi Impenetrable forest) will have a lunch stopover inclusive plus a stopover still at the Equator which is halfway to or from the park (Bwindi Forest). Normally reaching your lodge in this park (Bwindi Impenetrable) is usually in the afternoon therefore you could probably miss out on doing and getting engaged in a lot of other activities close/in/ around the park. The reward for most is that you can have a sun-downer drink when you reach and view the sunset.

  • Drive to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest from Kigali, Rwanda

Transferring from Kigali- Bwindi Forest in the south takes you approximately 4 hrs. So you possibly mislay 1 hr since you will be towards the East African time-zone, which is 1 hr ahead of Rwanda (Central African time zone).

Most visitors arrive at Bwindi Impenetrable National Park in the south in the afternoon, by lunchtime and have this time flexible for other activities while others decide to just lessen.

The Flight made into Rwanda and Trek Gorillas selection, which involves transferring from Kigali- Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, is the most famous choice with our customers.

You will have to access an East African Visa either online with Rwanda Immigration or upon your arrival at Kigali International Airport.

  • Fly-in Gorilla Express from Entebbe International Airport

Flying with Aerolink Safari Airlines is the fastest way to transfer to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest then to Kihihi Airstrip, which aids Bwindi Impenetrable Forest in the North. Alternatively, you can have a flight to Kisoro, which aids both Mgahinga Gorilla National Park & Bwindi Impenetrable Forest in the south.

In case you are preparing to engage in the Gorilla Habituation Experience activity then flying into the Kisoro Airport is the only option, it being the closest airport to Rushaga section in Bwindi.

Well few travelers do the Fly-In preference, reason being the cost of the flight. A midrange tour repeatedly becomes upmarket in price due to the fact that a round-trip adds on hugely about $500 or more if you do a flight into Kisoro.

  • Include Bwindi Impenetrable Forest in your Ugandan Safari

Various travelers to Uganda want to spot the country that is yonder the home of the gentle giants (Mountain gorillas). Which implies a 7-12 Day long tour in the Pearl of Africa.

Tours can involve Murchison Falls National Park, Kibale National Park, Queen Elizabeth National Park, and Mgahinga Gorilla National Park.

Start the tour in Kigali, Rwanda, and then conclude it in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. Well Bwindi Impenetrable Forest is among the parks that is involved in the tour. The venture can be overturned and start in Entebbe and concludes in Kigali.

Finally, you can start & conclude your tour in Entebbe and involve Lake Mburo National park, and there you could have excluded the long transfer from Bwindi Impenetrable National Park- Entebbe.
