Both Gishwati and Mukura Forest are easily accessible from major Rwanda national roads, Gishwati being approximately 2 hours drive from either Musanze or Rubavu, and Mukura about an hour and a half from either Karongi or Gitarama.

A number of conveniently located accommodation points are available adjacent to the two forests. At Gishwati you can choose from a rustic campsite at Matyazo Village, a catered guest house in Kinnihira Village or a luxury lodge adjacent to the forest (opening 2017). At Mukura a campsite is located adjacent to the forest near Kabara Village.
