Uganda is a landlocked country in East Africa whose diverse landscape encompasses the snow-capped Rwenzori Mountains, immense Lake Victoria, and its abundant wildlife. Gorilla Trekking In Uganda is surreal and unlike any other adventure experience Africa. The atmosphere of the trek through the wilderness fog is incredible. With each progression your anticipation builds and the reward of seeing the last remaining mountain gorillas on the planet is dynamite. The setting of, Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, is ostensibly a standout amongst the most mystical in all of Africa.
There are two things to remember when booking a gorilla trekking tour: the permit costs and the cost of the tour itself. All government requires everybody to get a permit to see the gorillas.
Uganda charges around $50 for single-entry and $100 for multiple-entry on visa costs for a visitor. On average, tours cost somewhere in the range of $500 and $800, depending upon the tour operator and the size of the group.
When you have a larger group, costs go down since you’re able to fill up the transportation vehicle. The tour operators usually conduct a 4 Days Uganda Safari which incorporates a lot of activity and adventure.
Uganda Wildlife Authority (UWA) the tourism governing body in Uganda sells 96 gorilla permits per day for Bwindi National Park and Mgahinga National Park (8 permits for one gorilla group). Due to the high demand of gorilla permits in the peak seasons that is from December to February and June to September and other months of the year, most willing gorilla safaris trekkers are often left out.
In 2011 UWA then introduced the discounted gorilla permits for the low seasons from April, May, and November so that tourists do not miss the once in the lifetime opportunity to track the mountain gorillas.
As far as UWA presented these discounted permits, an ever increasing number of voyagers have picked enthusiasm for following gorillas and taking an interest in different exercises like golden monkey tracking, mountain climbing and Batwa cultural trail in the low seasons.
There are less than 900 mountain gorillas in existence, and gorilla trekking gives a rare opportunity to watch the regular interaction of these delicate, mysterious primates.
