DR Congo Discounted Gorilla Trekking Permits to tempt more tourists to trek mountain gorillas in Virunga National Park. Besides Virunga National Park, the rest of the rare mountain Gorillas reside in other two countries thus; Rwanda Gorillas are located in Volcanoes National Park while Uganda gorillas are in Bwindi Impenetrable and Mgahinga National Park.
DR Congo Discounted Gorilla Trekking Permits issued the permits at only $200 per person which started way back in 2018 Uganda was the first country to propose discounts on gorilla permits for visitors who wanted to see Mountain Gorillas in Bwindi and Mgahinga National Park. This was established when Uganda was celebrating its 50 years of Independence as a way of attracting visitors to the gorilla park during the low season which is also known as the rainy season which happened in April, May, and November. Though, as a result of increasing the gorilla permits in Rwanda to USD1500, Uganda definitely abandoned low-season gorilla permits which were costing USD450 to keep in stride with Rwanda while offering reasonable gorilla permits. To date, the Democratic Republic of Congo followed the trend and offers low-season gorilla permits.
DR Congo Discounted Gorilla Trekking Permits at only $200 per person which started way back in 2018 where permits allow one hour of seeing gorillas to whoever books them. DR Congo has maintained its low season discounted gorilla trekking permits during the months of 15th March to 15th May and 15th October to 15th December, this is an opening to many people who want to see the mountain gorillas and can’t pay $1500 per person Rwanda gorilla permit or $700 per person in Uganda.
This discounted gorilla trekking in DR Congo is done in Virunga National Park which is located at the borders of Uganda and Rwanda. This discounted gorilla permit is proposed to help market and give more awareness about Congo gorillas to more people due to many different wars in the past few years, people think that mountain gorillas are only found in Uganda and Rwanda forgetting DR Congo because of its constant wars.
We continuously advise all our clients to access Congo for gorilla trekking tours and other safaris via Uganda or Rwanda where you can fly to any of the two countries and drive for about 3hours to the Gisenyi border. But if you fly to Rwanda or Uganda you will have to drive for about 8 to 9 hours to reach the Bunagana border in Kisoro, so the best way to cross to Congo is through Rwanda.
Despite the security concerns within the country, we recommend that you contact Kisoro Tours Uganda about the availability of the discounted gorilla trekking permits for Virunga National Park, DR Congo tourists’ visa which is easy for many people visiting Congo. You can as well book your gorilla permit directly from Virunga Park offices in Goma city but it is good to use a local tour operator for ease. The tour operator will be able to handle all the safari activities including the gorilla permits, transportation to Virunga, and accommodation facilities where you will stay for your Congo gorilla trekking safaris.
