Explore Uganda Rwanda Congo Mountain Gorilla Trekking Safari, all countries require tourist and other visitors to have gorilla trekking permits, and there are only a few numbers of gorilla permits available every day, a permit is valid for one day and only allowed to spend one hour with the gorillas in Congo, Uganda but Rwanda is the most expensive because Rwanda has increased they gorilla permit from $750 to $1500 this have made Rwanda’s gorilla trekking permit expensive for a normal budget tourist.
Book your gorilla trekking tour in Uganda and Congo at a fair price and affordable but you all need to plan in advance and confirm your booking because a gorilla trekking permit in Uganda costs $600 for the high season and during the low season in Uganda gorilla permit cost $450 in the month of April, May, and November and also in Congo gorilla trekking is very much affordable permit cost $400 and during the month of March to May Congo gives discounts on gorilla permit at $200 this balances it all.
All the remaining gorillas in the wild, only a few gorillas families are habituated and available to tourists for gorilla trekking activity in all three countries for example in Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park have 10 families open for tourism, in Uganda 15 gorilla families in both Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and in Mghinga Gorilla National Park and in the DR-Congo’s Virunga National Park have 7 gorilla families. Each family is tracked once in the morning and only 8 people are allowed to visit per family per day and trackers go very earl in the mountains to locate each family and this means your chances of seeing the gorillas are at 95% extremely high but we can’t promise anything because you have to be fit to walk up and down in the impenetrable forests of Africa
