Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park is the Africa’s oldest rain forest and has beautiful ridges, steep valleys and waterfalls. Be prepared for steep hikes though. Both National parks protects an estimated 500 mountain Gorillas, split into 19 habituated Gorilla families open for tracking daily. There are four Gorilla tracking trail heads which are: Buhoma in the North, Ruhija in the East, Nkuringo and Rushaga which are in the South.
- Ruhija trail-head is our favorite Gorilla trekking location for budget Uganda Gorilla trekking safaris starting from Kigali – Rwanda.
- For our mid-range clients we recommend gorilla trekking in Rushaga region which has a variety of affordable Gorilla safari lodges located close to the Gorilla park. It is also important to note that Rushaga has the highest number of habituated mountain Gorilla families in Bwindi forest.
