Add-On's

Add-On Options to Consider adding to your 2 Day Uganda gorilla Safari through Kigali.

You could opt to go for  the full day Gorilla Habituation Experience which allows you 4-hours with wild mountain gorillas in the Rushaga area of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. If you choose Gorilla habituation, then there will require an extra day - making the tour a 3 day Uganda gorilla Habituation Safari through Kigali. Gorilla Habituation Permits cost USD1500 each. This however changes the itinerary since gorilla habituation is only done in Rushaga area of southern Bwindi. Read more “Gorilla Habituation Experience in Uganda”.
