If you choose Gorilla habituation, then there will be an extra charge on the permits and accommodation – Gorilla habituation permits cost US$1500 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”.

Forego long drive times from Entebbe or Kampala and fly into Kigali – Rwanda where it is just a 5-hours drive to Rushaga area of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest Versus the long 09+-hour drive from Entebbe, Uganda.
