currently, gorilla trekking is on the top of the list of every tourist planning a safari to East Africa, gorilla safari is popular mainly in Rwanda Uganda, and in order for anyone to trek those mountain gorillas, you must first book a gorilla permit in advance. A gorilla permit is a pass that you have to present to the park rangers before you are allowed in the park to trek mountain gorillas.
Gorilla trekking is only done in 4 national parks in three countries, the parks where to trek and see mountain gorillas are Volcanoes national park in Rwanda, Virunga national park in DR-Congo, and in both Bwindi impenetrable forest national park and Mgahinga gorilla national park in Uganda. For anyone who wishes to go gorilla trekking in any of the above parks or Country, the first thing you need to do is what we call gorilla permit booking.

Yes, if you don’t want to book through a tour operator, you can as well choose to book your gorilla permits directly from Uganda Wildlife Authority headquarters in Kampala for Uganda gorilla permits and for Rwanda permits you can also book directly from the Rwanda Development Board headquarters in Kigali. Office.
But still, the easiest way of securing a gorilla permit is through a trusted local tour operator like Kisoro tours Uganda ltd because the response is firster compared to when you book directly, for example, if you book direct the email is not answered in time, calls some time are not answered which is not a good thing when you planning a trip to Africa, so personally, I would still recommend that you book through a tour operator to avoid unnecessary delays in planning your gorilla trekking safari in East Africa.
We highly recommend that you book your gorilla permits like 6 to a year in advance before the starting date of your gorilla trekking safaris in either Uganda or Rwanda, this will help you to avoid disappointment on last-minute booking because you will not be sure if you will get the permit for the date and month you intend to go this gorilla safari
One of the main reasons why we recommend that you book your gorilla permits in advance is that there is a limit on the number of permits issued per day, for example in Uganda, there are only 20 habituated gorilla families while Rwanda has only 10 habituated gorilla groups and only 8 people are allowed to trek each gorilla family, now this means that Uganda has only 160 gorilla permits available daily while Rwanda has 80 and gorilla permits sold on first come first serve.
