In the wake of Rwanda’s decision to raise gorilla permits’ prices from US$750 to US$1500, there has never been a better and cheaper time to go gorilla trekking in Bwindi Uganda. Uganda’s gorilla permit prices are still being held at US$600 each during the on-peak months and discounted to US$450 during the low season months of April, May and November. We believe that this a smart move by UWA to attract a higher volume of visitors to trek the gorillas in Bwindi Uganda.

Trekking gorillas should not be the preserve of affluent travelers only. While Rwanda is entitled to pursue a high-end tourism strategy that attracts only deep pocketed visitors to Rwanda, we believe that at a time when competition for tourism dollars is stiff, keeping destinations affordable would be a wiser move. We think Uganda is doing exactly that.

Uganda is naturally endowed with much more than gorillas. A visitor is able to trek the gorillas in Bwindi and have an African Big 5 safari experience in either Murchison Falls National Park, Kidepo National Park, Lake Mburo National Park or Queen Elizabeth National Park. Having the best of both worlds without having to hop from one plane to the next.

Gorilla trekking in Uganda is pretty much the same experience as gorilla trekking in Rwanda as both countries share the same Virunga mountain ranges where the gorillas live. To avoid long ground transfer driving times of 10 hours from Entebbe to Bwindi, gorilla trekkers are able to either fly from Entebbe to Kihihi or better still arrive at Kigali airport, transfer across the border via the Cyanika border crossing (5hrs) into Nkuringo and then back to Kigali after the gorilla trek in Bwindi.

Uganda has a fair number of gorilla groups to choose from. For gorilla treks that require longer gorilla trekking times, we recommend the Nkuringo sector for the fitness fanatics, where gorilla treks can take anything from 8-10hrs as the gorillas tend to range high up in the mountains. If you are looking for a gentler shorter trek, then the Buhoma sector would be ideal with gorilla treks as short as 2-4hrs. Bwindi offers an ideal gorilla trekking destinations for all visitors of all fitness levels. Porters are also available at a small fee for visitors who need assistance with carrying their gorilla trekking gear or disabled clients who wish to realise their dream of trekking the gorillas in their lifetime.

Please contact us with your gorilla trekking date and we shall endeavour to secure Uganda gorilla permits for your preferred gorilla family. We suggest that you secure gorilla permits first, before booking your Bwindi accommodation, that way we can tailor your accommodation to the gorilla group for which gorilla permits will have been acquired.

In addition to assisting with purchase of your Uganda gorilla permits, we also offer a complimentary accommodation booking service for anyone who buys their Uganda gorilla permits through us. We charge US$50 for each gorilla permit to cover administration and service fees. For clients arriving at Kigali, we transfer the permits from UWA’s Kampala offices to our Kigali offices so that they get handed over to you on arrival to Kigali. We also scan and email copies of your Uganda gorilla permits upon purchase.
