Walking Journeys for intrepid travellers

Bwindi Impenetrable Forest Guided Walks and
Virunga Volcano Treks

For many tourists to East Africa the opportunity to trek Mountain Gorillas in Uganda, Rwanda or the DR Congo is a once in a lifetime experience. Tracking Gorillas is an immensely gripping and sometimes very emotional experience for many visitors, whilst for others it often fulfils a life times ambition.

There is of course so much more to appreciate in this far flung beautiful corner of Western Uganda. The region is of home to over 700 of the world's free roaming population of Mountain Gorillas that are the primary focus of tourism to the region. It is impossible not to notice from whatever means of transport you are using that the region is endowed with the most magnificent scenery and landscapes your are ever likely to witness on the planet. Having come so far or better still before leaving home plan into your itinerary a couple of days on a imaginative walking safari and get so much more out of your rain forest experience and visit to the area.

Nkuringo Walking Safaris offers guided nature walks between Buhoma in the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and the town of Kisoro via Nkuringo and vice versa. This experience offers a low cost insiders perspective into village life in rural Uganda and we will highlight to you some of the wonders of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest all at your own pace.

Our team of local enthusiastic guides are eager to show you the warmth of welcome and hospitality Ugandan's are well known for. Travelling with Nkuringo Walking Safaris you will be humbled and touched by the heartfelt sincerity of common people as you experience something completely unique on your African journey. We provide the opportunity to immerse yourselves in the fabric of rural Uganda as few others get to see.

  • Views of the Virunga Volcanoes
  • Journey by dugout canoe on Lake Mutanda
  • Visits to rural homesteads
  • Experience wonderous views from Nkuringo
  • Trek through the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest

Walking is of course the focus of this tour. The vast majority of people in this region rely heavily on their feet to get to and from their destination. You will have the chance to see how villagers manage their days and through your guides converse with them to learn about their lives.

This journey can be undertaken in either direction between Buhoma and Kisoro and Kisoro and Buhoma. At least one night spent in Nkuringo is usual on this walking tour.
