There is no doubt that Uganda was voted the best destination by Lonely planet. Apart from mountain gorillas,The long drive with Auto Rental Uganda to Bwindi is quite enchanting getting you say words like amazing, spectacular with great sceneries all through like the Equator, Lake Mburo National Park for some, Queen Elizabeth National Park with abundant wildlife, terraced mountains with flowing rivers, long horned cattle and a lot of rural Africa. To start with, Uganda is blessed by over 1008 species of birds in a size almost similar to great Britain thus making it one of the most important birding countries for Bird lovers. Uganda has the source of the mighty River Nile which is the longest river on planet earth. It is at Jinja that this river starts its three months journey to Mediterranean sea. On the nile you can do white water rafting and bung jumping. Uganda is privileged to have a portion of Lake Victoria which is the largest flesh water lake in Africa and therefore sport fishing in search of tilapia and Nile perch is an experience on any Ugandan safari. Talk of Uganda habouring the second deepest lake bunyonyi at 900m deep and in a district refered as the small swittzerland of Uganda, the amazing scenery is breathtaking and gets you awwww’ing, not forgetting Ugandans as the most friendliest people in Africa.

Getting to the Mountain Gorillas in Bwindi with car hire or car rental with Auto Rental Uganda, The Gorillas are located approximately nine to ten hours drive from Entebbe International Airport to Bwindi or Mgahinga National Park depending on the traffic and speed of your guide driver and the car. 70% of tourists that have visited uganda have urged that this long journey from Entebbe Airport to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is full of beautifull scenic views, stopovers at the equator and ofcourse the spectacular kigezi hills, and say it’s a combination of a must see on your way to the gorillas.

Gorilla Permits to trek in Uganda each costs six hundred United States Dollars (USD600.00). on a good idea, this implies that gorilla tracking within Rwanda is more expensive in comparison to gorilla trekking within Uganda. You save USD150.00 you track within Uganda and will use the rest to track the chimpanzees within Kibale National Park. That makes sence for you to shoot two with one stone,(call it price of usd 750 for just one)

Allocating groups in Uganda, the situation is different. Gorilla permits and groups are allocated on a first come first serve basis with out putting into consideration, age, physical fitness and other important variables, however this arrangement is being looked at and it has changed in some trecking areas like Ruhijja. Gorillas in Uganda more especially in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park are located in a forest which have been termed as impenetrable and this has sometimes resulted into some how low visibility compared to volcanoes in rwanda and photography opportunities due to tall grass thats not withstanding however, some gorilla families such as Nshongi in Rushaga have been very excellent in as far as photography is concerned. Others such as Rushegura and nkuringo have been described as being social and thus easier to view. Uganda has many accommodation options in its four trail heads of Buhoma, Ruhija, Rushaga and Nkuringo. In every section of the park, you find at least two upmarket accommodation facilities and other choices. In Buhoma for example, you have Gorilla Forest Camp, Buhoma Lodge, Bwindi Volcano Lodge, Mahogany springs which offer up market services, In Nkuringo, Clouds Lodge and Nkuringo Gorilla Camp are one of the best around the Park.

Lastly, if you are not travelling just to see the mountain gorilla with car rental Uganda company and you want to include other activities in your visit then Auto Rental Uganda is the right button to press. Many tourists have continually had to cross to Uganda after their Rwanda gorilla trek to tour other reserves like Queen Elizabeth National Parks so endowed with abundant wildlife one cannot see in Rwanda. This is why probably folks continue enduring the long drives to Bwindi given the fact there is an easy way out.
As for us at Auto Rental Uganda are passionate about Uganda, the pearl of Africa and Rwanda, the country of a thousand hills. We will tailor your safari to your personal preferences, taking into account not to loose of the smallest details, accommodation booked, activities arranged with the best guide for you….
