For convenient access to gorilla trekking in Mgahinga Gorilla Park or Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, fly directly to Entebbe, Uganda, or Kigali, Rwanda. Direct flights are available from Arusha, Tanzania, and Nairobi, Kenya. This add-on option is perfect for those already on a wildlife safari in Kenya or Tanzania.
Entebbe International Airport is your ideal flight destination if you’re on a wildlife safari in Kenya or Tanzania and wish to explore Uganda’s remarkable primates. Kigali International Airport in Rwanda should be your primary choice for gorilla trekking.
In Rwanda, gorilla trekking permits cost USD 1,500, while in Uganda, they are USD 600 for the exclusive and exceptional Gorilla Habituation Experience. This unique opportunity allows you to spend four hours with a gorilla family in the Rushaga area of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest.
Uganda stands out as the home to over 480 mountain gorillas, the highest number in any country, and as the habitat of over 5,000 wild chimpanzees, with 1,500 residing in Kibale Forest. Despite claims made by some Tanzanian tour operators, Tanzania has only a fraction of the chimpanzee population found in East Africa.
Please note that permit availability in Uganda is limited during peak seasons (December to March and June to October), particularly for the exclusive Gorilla Habituation Experience. We highly recommend planning your trip well in advance, even for the following year, to secure your permits.
Fly from Arusha or Nairobi and unlock an extraordinary adventure as you trek gorillas in Uganda. Prepare for an awe-inspiring journey that will leave you with memories to cherish forever.
