This is the real deal for you to have a maximum enjoyable experience in one of the most interesting National parks in Africa, look at this either in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park or Volcanoes National Park.

This Uganda Rwanda safari is a great East African blend /mixture and does symbols a high spot of almost all the African wildlife tours. Several travelers/tourist may choose to begin with Uganda, to engage in the tremendous game drives in Queen Elizabeth National Park, Murchison falls National Park for a boat cruise, Chimpanzee trekking in the Kibale National Park, walking tours in Lake Mburo National Park and then embark on Gorilla trekking in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. Now Gorilla trekking in Uganda (Bwindi Impenetrable National Park) is joined with the Gorilla trekking of Rwanda (Volcanoes National Park), then after that you can also engage in Chimpanzee trekking in Nyungwe National Park /tour the Kagera National Park for Birding and game sighting/viewing among others. After all is done you can relish and appreciate the land of thousand Hills, the beauty of the capital city of Rwanda-Kigali before you retire and depart back to your home country.

Either way you could possibly begin your Uganda Rwanda safari from Rwanda, have a city tour first which grants you a wide opportunity to widely spot and tour places like the new conventional centre of Rwanda, Genocide memorial grounds, Visit beaches therein like along lake Kivu, etc. Rwanda its self does contain few National parks of which a traveler can finish/expend in a few days possible, under here the principal activity is basically the incredible Gorilla trekking in Volcanoes National Park which is joined with Gorilla trekking in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park(Uganda) so as to finish/expend the loveliness/exquisiteness of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. It’s quite an ideal if you remained for Gorilla trekking activity for at least 3 Days, then push forward to explore the mystic wild places/destinations of Uganda-the Pearl of Africa.

What you should bear in mind is that Gorilla Trekking is the high point/climax for all the travelers in Uganda, majorly most of the tourists/travelers do come to Uganda & Rwanda for that –Gorilla trekking. Rwanda ‘s gorilla permit ranks the top in being expensive in East Africa, may be its due to the preservation policy of a the few mountain gorillas in Rwanda. Gorilla permits in Rwanda cost $1,500 same rates go for the Gorilla Habituation Experience as well, whereas Uganda gorilla permit costs $600 but effective 1st July 2020 its will be raised to $700 and Gorilla Habituation Experience does rate $1,500.

Best time to embark on Uganda Rwanda Safari

Year in, Year out one can enjoy his /her Uganda Rwanda safari (Mountain gorilla trekking). Gorilla trekking in both of these countries is clearly possible all year through but then don’t forget to reflect on the dynamics of weather during specific periods of the year. Uganda and Rwanda do experience the same kind of weather all year through, rainy season which runs from March-May & October-November does encumber/obstruct several travelers from loving and relishing the mountain Gorilla trekking activity to the fullest.Despite,the rainy season sometimes comes with the better good like the presence of reduced /discounted mountain gorilla trekking permits in Uganda and reduced rates of where to stay(accommodation rates) in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and a lot of free space available.

The peak season is another that does favor most of the travelers and it ranges in months of June in both countries, and several gorilla safaris do happen in the months of June-September, from December to February.So in that case if you don’t mind about the huge masses then you can book your Gorilla trekking permit early enough, but then if you are a fun of a little wetness & rain then the wet/rainy season will definitely work for you and will not avoid/avert you from relishing your tour to Uganda and Rwanda.
