Searching for a 2 Days Uganda Gorilla Trekking Safari from Kigali tour package? Following the 100% increment on Rwanda gorilla permits that saw the price rise from $750 to $1500 per permit for all nationals, we have come up with an itinerary that will let you spend $600 on each permit if you cannot afford the Rwanda gorilla trekking permit prices.
Many aren’t willing to take the 9 hours drive to Bwindi Forest National Park or Mgahinga Gorilla National Park that’s why they always opt for Rwanda. However, this 2 days Bwindi gorillas from Kigali safari begins and ends in Rwanda but the actual gorilla trekking activity is in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park in Uganda.
Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and Mgahinga Gorilla National Park are just 4 hours away by road from Kigali compared to the 9 hours when you check in from Uganda, which cuts the distance and the price as well.
