Kisoro gorillas?

Jump to last reply

My wife and I wanted to see the gorillas at Rwanda PNV, but the permits are sold out for the days that we have available. Unfortunately, we cannot reschedule the other portions of our Africa trip. One tour operator presented us with the option of starting the tour in Kigali Rwanda but then crossing over the border into Uganda, and then seeing the Nkuringo gorilla Group that starts off from Kisoro. Has anyone done this lately? Is that gorilla group worth seeing? I realize that it won't be as good as seeing the gorillas in PNV, but is it a good Plan B? Is Kisoro safe, or are there still some problems because it is close to the DRC border?

The other alternative is to do away with Rwanda / Kigali totally and spend the time entirely in Uganda: arrive in Entebbe and then see the gorillas at Bwindi Park. I read that there is a lot of driving between Entebbe and Bwindi, but is the gorilla trek in Bwindi Park better than the Nkuringo Group that starts off from Kisoro?

Thanks in advance!

Darren
