2017 Uganda Gorilla Tracking Comparing-Rwanda Gorilla Tracking, Mountain gorilla is difficult to describe, that magical one hour allowed to spent with the gorilla and remember it’s not cheap a permit cost USD600 for Uganda, USD750 for Rwanda and USD400 for DR-Congo but it is unusual to find someone who regretted the financial outlay.
Gorillas live in groups/families more like humans, current gorilla population in the whole world is 880 and gorilla trekking can only be done in three Countries namely Uganda, Rwanda and DR-Congo on the habituated mountain gorilla groups/families, Rwanda have 11 habituated gorilla groups/families which lives in Volcanoes National Park, Uganda have 15 habituated gorilla groups/families that lives in famous Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park, Uganda also have one more group that lives in Mgahinga Gorilla National Park and lastly DR-Congo have 3 habituated groups/families that lives in Virunga National Park also keeping in mind that only maximum of 8 people are allowed to visit a gorilla group/family per day so this means 8 people per family per day.
Price for a gorilla tracking permit in Rwanda is at USD750 compared to Uganda is at USD600 per permit, Rwanda’s pride is that one can do the gorilla tracking even in one day and fly back home, Volcanoes National Park is located 100km from Kigali international airport which is just 2 hours drive to the Kinigi Volcanoes park headquarters in Musanze Ruhengeri District, which is impossible for Uganda because Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park and Mghinga Gorilla National Park are located 500 km from Entebbe international Airport it can take you 9 hours drive from Entebbe or Kampala with all stopovers
In other words the long drive to Bwindi Impentrabe Forest National Park and Mghinga Gorilla National Park is quite enchanting because of its great sceneries all through like the Uganda Equator and Lake Mburo National Park which cannot be missed on your way to Bwindi Forest with abundant wildlife, terraced mountains with lots of rural African Villages which is not the case for Rwanda’s drive from Kigali to Volcanoes National Park compared with Uganda’s Bwindi Forest Impenetrable National Park and Mghinga Gorilla National Park.
Comparing gorilla tracking tour costs in general, because of the long drive from Entebbe International Airport or Kampala Capital city of Uganda to Bwindi, Impenetrable Forest National Park and Mghinga Gorilla National Park Uganda wildlife Authority have introduced promotional/discounted gorilla permit from USD600 to USD450 in the month of April, May and November 2017-2018 contact us for details
