Advantages of Ruhija gorilla safaris
Many tourists and tour operators are now opting for Ruhija gorilla safaris for several reasons. Ruhija region is easily accessed from Kigali as well as Entebbe compared to other regions. If coming from Entebbe/Kampala, the road is tarmacked up to Kabale. The only section which is not tarmacked is from Kabale to the Park. Ruhija just like Rushaga and Nkuringo is easily accessed from Kigali. Ruhija region is closer to Katuna boarder compared to all other regions making it easy for tour operators and tourists to organize ruhija gorilla safaris from Entebbe or Kigali
Ruhija gorilla families
When gorilla tracking was officially opened up in Ruhija, this region had only one habituated gorilla family called Bitukura. As we talk, this region has more than three gorilla families that can be trekked daily thus providing enough permits for those interested in Ruhija gorilla safaris and treks. Some of the families in Ruhija include Oruzogo as well as Kyaguriro gorilla families.
