The main advantage to go for gorilla tracking in Uganda instead of Rwanda is its price. Where Rwanda charges 1500 USD per gorilla permit, is this only 600 USD in Uganda.
However, the country has more to offer. Visiting Kibale National Park gives you the opportunity to find many primates, like chimpanzees and the black and white colobus monkey. But Uganda is also home of some amazing wildlife. In the Murchison Falls you can go for game driving and try to catch the big 5! Lastly you can visit the source of the river nile and lake Victoria for some relaxing after your safaris.
The destination with the highest density of gorilla’s in the world.
Rwanda is a much smaller country than Uganda what makes the driving distances much shorter. This gives you the opportunity to see more in fewer time! So after your gorilla trek you have enough time for the many beautiful places that the country has to offer. There is for example Kigali, the capital of Rwanda. It’s a gorgeous city with good weather. In our city tour you can get a taste of the turbulent history of the country by visiting for example the genocide memorials.
Rwanda has also national parks which offer some amazing wildlife. It has a great variation of animals including chimpanzees and a variety of birds. Lastly, you can visit Lake Kivu, a great place to relax and take a swim after your gorilla trekking.
