You will then cross over into Uganda via Kyanika border post. The drive continues through the nearby Kisoro town and finally to Bwindi national park. The journey should take about 4-5 hrs. Arriving at Bwindi national park early afternoon will give you an opportunity to do optional activities such as hiking, visiting the community, etc.

Day 2: Gorilla Trekking Adventure

Stop At: Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, Buhoma Kanungu and Kisoro, Kabale Uganda
You will head to the Bwindi National Park gate immediately after breakfast to get a briefing about the gorilla trek. The briefing will be conducted by the national park guide and will cover the basics on what to expect during the trek. It is at this point that you will be told which gorilla family to trek. It is likely that you will be joined by other visitors. The gorilla trek can take from few to many hours depending on how far the gorillas are inside the forest.

Note: Depending on the availability of gorilla trekking permits, we might suggest trekking the gorillas at Mgahinga Gorilla National Park.

I went with Bamboo from Kigali to Bwindi to see the gorillas. It was all smooth -- friendly driver with a good car, nice hotel with full board and most importantly a well organized and exciting gorilla trek in Bwindi. Bamboo was good service and good value -- I recommend them!
