Bwindi gorilla trekking from Kisoro is a town in the Western Region of Uganda. It is the chief town of Kisoro District and the site of the district headquarters.
It’s location near the border with Rwanda and Congo makes this town the main entry to and from the neighboring countries. Its strategic location near Bwindi impenetrable national park and Mgahinga gorilla national park makes it a prime tourist destination offering wide range of activities like gorilla trekking, golden monkey trekking, and boat excursions on Lake Mutanda and birding safaris in Echuya forest reserve.
Uganda’s raised topography means a cooler climate than its equatorial setting suggests but if you’re planning a gorilla trek, it’s important to know when to go to Uganda for the easiest trekking conditions. Although it’s regarded as a year-round activity, the best time to visit Uganda for gorilla trekking is during the country’s two dry seasons: January and February and from June to September.
Uganda wildlife authority has a regional office in kisoro town for booking all other activities except mountain gorilla trekking. Great Adventure Safaris can help you book the gorilla permit from Kampala and arrange the whole experience for you.
The easiest place to trek the gorillas while in kisoro is Mgahinga gorilla national park which is 14 kms from the main town and the road is usually accessible all year round.
A 4×4 safari car is advisable to drive to Mgahinga gorilla national park as it is very rough and rocky road. Contact Great Adventure Safaris for more detailed information about your gorilla trek and securing gorilla permits in Uganda.
