Choosing Between Uganda, Rwanda, and Congo For Gorilla Trekking

Uganda, Rwanda, and DR Congo are prime destinations for 2024/2025 budget gorilla trekking, but each country offers something unique beyond the gorillas. Whether you want to experience the vibrant culture of Uganda, the stunning scenery of Rwanda, or the adventurous spirit of Congo, there’s something for everyone. Here’s what you need to know to make an informed decision:

Uganda

Bwindi Impenetrable National Park: Known for its dense forests and the highest density of gorillas, Bwindi is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the best place to trek gorillas in Uganda. The park is located 500 kilometers from the main airport in Entebbe and 164 kilometers from Kagali in Rwanda, with a border crossing. A gorilla permit in Bwindi costs $700 per person.

Mgahinga Gorilla National Park: As part of the larger Virunga Conservation Area in the Virunga Mountains, this park offers a good alternative to the gorilla trekking experience in Bwindi and Volcanoes National Parks. A gorilla permit in Mgahinga costs $700 per person.

Rwanda

Volcanoes National Park: This park in the Virunga Mountains played a crucial role in Dian Fossey’s pioneering gorilla conservation efforts and is the only place you can watch gorillas in Rwanda. Although it offers the easiest access to gorillas, it is the most expensive place to trek gorillas. A gorilla permit in Volcanoes costs $1500 per person.

Congo

Virunga National Park: Congo’s Virunga National Park is home to both lowland and mountain gorilla species and offers the cheapest gorilla trekking experiences. However, it is the hardest park to access, with permits costing $400 per person.

Additionally, it’s important to consider the best time of year to visit each park. For example, the dry season is the best time to visit Bwindi and Volcanoes National Parks (June to September and December to February), while the low season (March to May and October to November) is a great time to visit Virunga National Park due to lower prices and fewer crowds.

Finally, to ensure a safe and enjoyable gorilla trekking experience, book with a reputable tour company specializing in gorilla trekking like Kisoro Tours Ltd. Send us an email to start planning your budget gorilla safari.
