Gorilla trekking in Uganda from Nairobi

Gorilla trekking in Uganda from Nairobi

Gorilla Trekking can only be done in countries like Uganda (Bwindi Impenetrable National Park & Mgahinga Gorilla National Park), Rwanda at Volcanoes National Park and DRC in Virunga National Park. Kenya is one of the best Wildlife Tour places but there is no existence of mountain Gorillas but you can join your Wildlife Tour with Gorilla Trekking though in either Uganda, Rwanda or DRC.

Gorilla Trekking from Nairobi is much easier other than the DRC & Rwanda because Kenya borders Uganda. Trekkers/travelers having interest in mountain gorilla trekking can book a flight from Kenya to Uganda at Entebbe International Airport and then transfer to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park/Mgahinga Gorilla National Park via Kihihi/Kisoro Airstrip from Entebbe International Airport /Kajjansi Airfield.

You could still use road means of transport from Kenya to Kampala by use of a bus and set off to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park /Mgahinga Gorilla National Park for Gorilla Trekking in case you can’t afford a flight. Better still you can transfer to Kigali –Rwanda after Gorilla Trekking in Uganda and have a flight still out of Kigali International Airport hence reducing the driving duration of 9-10 hrs – Kampala,4-5 hrs to Kigali.

This activity of Gorilla Trekking is a yearly activity done year in and year out, but some months are more wonderful than others for instance June-September & December –February, during this period the forest is not too thick and the trekking grounds are not muddy/slippery, which makes it easier the activity to hike. Don’t forget Rwanda & Uganda have the same climatic types.

Without forgetting Rwanda has gotten the most expensive Gorilla Permit at $1500 per person, per trek, followed by Uganda at a cost of $800 per person and DRC having the cheapest at a cost of $400 per person in the high/dry season and yet it also gives discounts at a cost of $200 per person in the wet season.
