Popular Short Uganda Gorilla Safaris – Uganda Gorilla trekking Tour
Short Uganda gorilla safaris are popular gorilla trekking safaris in Uganda for tourists with limited time to spend in the country.
Short gorilla tours in Uganda include the popular 3 Days Gorilla trekking safari Bwindi, 2 Days Gorilla trekking safari Uganda from Uganda, 3 Days Bwindi gorilla trekking safari from Kigali, 3 days gorilla trekking flying safari to Bwindi and other short gorilla tours to Mgahinga Gorilla National Park.
Planning short Uganda gorilla trekking safaris is possible all year round, however, depending on the activity to be undertaken always be aware of the best time to go for a short trip.
Generally the best time to visit Uganda is during the dry season, which is in the months of June – August and December to February, this is also a good time for your short gorilla tour.
Taking a short tour in Uganda is in most cases affordable compared to long safaris in Uganda. In case you are interested in a single activity which is gorilla trekking, then a short trip is a good option.
The number of days for these short gorilla safari itineraries are dependent on where the trip starts and ends. Tours from Entebbe International Airport in Uganda can only spend a minimum of 3 Days because of the long driving distance which is about 10hrs. The first and last day are reserved for the road drives.
You can also take a flight to the park, however, there are no flights that can make it possible to reach the park by 8:00am which is the start of the trek.
Therefore the first and last days are reserved for flights. Trips from Kigali International Airport can last 2 days because the airport is closer to the park than that of Uganda.
It takes a drive time of about 4-5 hours to reach the park and this makes it possible to drive back to Kigali after trekking compared to returning to Entebbe.
A day tour (1 day) is not categorized under short gorilla tracking tours in Uganda because in most cases its not possible for travellers from either Kigali or Kampala.
The starting time for gorilla trekking is 8:00am and therefore it is only possible to make it to the park if you have spent the night within the lodges around the park. This makes the distance short and therefore possible to reach the park on time for trekking.
