  • The lodges presented in our itineraries are for presentation purposes. The lodges where you will stay might differ depending on the price paid for the tour and space availability.
  • We suggest to start some trips to Kigali, Rwanda, given the short drive distance between Kigali and Bwindi (4-5hrs) compared to an 8-9hrs drive between Bwindi and Kampala.
