Starting in Kampala and ending in Kigali, the tour Gorillas, Chimps & Rwanda is a guided trekking trip that takes 12 days. You will be traveling through Nyungwe Forest National Park, Lake Mburo National Park, Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and 5 other destinations in Rwanda and Uganda. Gorillas, Chimps & Rwanda is a group tour which includes accommodation, transport, meals and others. Please see the package includes section for further details.

This is a quick, wildlife-packed tour of Rwanda and Uganda,
which you can fit into two weeks' holiday. We set off from Uganda's capital,
Kampala, to explore some of the best National Parks in East Africa. We travel
to Lake Mburo NP, the only park in Uganda with impalas, slender mongooses and
giant bush rats, and Queen Elizabeth NP, where we can see hippos, hyenas,
chimps, elephants, leopards and lions.The centrepiece and highlight of this tour is gorilla trekking
in Bwindi Impenetrable NP. There are still barely 1,000 mountain gorillas left
in the world, so this is a rare experience and one which many people find
incredibly moving. On top of that, we also have the option to see more
endangered primates on a trek to track Golden Monkeys in Volcanoes NP, as well
as trekking chimpanzees in Nyungwe Forest NP, Rwanda's most bio diverse area,
before finishing our trip in Kigali.

“I have taken three trips with Dragoman and always a positive and excellent experience. I always consider Dragoman for my travels especially when overlanding. Excellent tour leaders, drivers and cooks, the itineraries are detailed and encompass so much and the experience itself driving in the truck is always unforgettable. Love the entire experience!”

Travel Insurance

For this Gorillas, Chimps & Rwanda tour getting the required visa(s) is the responsibility for each individual traveller, as visa requirements vary depending on your nationality. We recommend to check with your local embassies representing the countries that you are travelling to, as part of this itinerary.

Local Payment The local payment is a group fund, paid separately from the trip price on the first day of the tour. It covers everything that the group does together on the ground. This is primarily hotel accommodation and campsite fees, meals whilst camping (but not while eating in restaurants), and included activities and puts money directly back to the local community. The local payment, or kitty system, is unique to overlanding tours and provides maximum flexibility and best value on the road - you can see exactly what is being paid for, you get everything at cost price, it keeps costs competitive by leveraging group expenses and saves on administrative costs. The fund is run by the tour guide, and any excess left over at the end is returned equally to the group. Local prices are estimated in USD when we print the brochure then reviewed monthly as local costs and exchange rates vary throughout the year. It's therefore important once you book your trip to check the website regularly and just before departure for any changes to the amount.
