Gorilla Trekking Rwanda Congo Uganda Tracking Gorilla Permits, Gorillas can only be tracked in Uganda, Rwanda, and Congo, Rwanda increased gorilla permit to 1500 USD from 750 USD this has made gorilla trekking very expensive in Rwanda the land of a thousand hills, but this does not have to make you worry because Kisoro Tours Uganda made it easy for you.
fly to Kigali Rwanda and go gorilla trekking in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and in Virunga mountains in Congo at a friendly price, for Uganda, you will need to apply for an East Africa tourists visa which will allow you to go to Rwanda and Uganda on the same visa and for Congo you will have to get a visa for both Countries because Congo is not a member of East African Community.
Flying to Rwanda trek gorillas in Uganda and Congo is the easiest way to access Virunga National Park in DR-Congo, Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National park, and Mghinga Gorilla National Park because of driving distances, for example, if you fly to Uganda Entebbe International Airport it will take you nine hours drive to get to Bwindi Forest but if you fly to Rwanda’s capital city Kigali its only 4hours drive to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and Congo you can fly to Goma Airport but there are only a few international flights which go there so it’s better to fly to Kigali and drive for about 3hours to Goma spend a night there and the following morning you drive for one and hour to the starting point of Virunga National Park.
Congo’s VirungaNational Park is home to the rare endangered mountain gorillas, sharing it with Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda and Mghinga Gorilla National Park in Uganda but Uganda also have another independent forest with more than half of the mountain gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park in southwestern Uganda, those the only places where you find and trek mountain gorillas in the whole world, also Rwanda and Uganda is the only East African Countries where you find habituated golden monkeys open for tourism.
