Which Gorilla Group to Visit
in Uganda, Rwanda and DR Congo?
Most of our Clients/travelers ask us about the different gorilla groups and which of the gorilla groups are bigger; Others base their decision on the distance of the hike to reach the gorilla groups.
In Rwanda, Uganda and DR Congo, it’s quite difficult to say which gorilla families are easier or harder to find, Gorillas as we are all aware, gorillas are wild animals whose actions are unpredictable, The ease of seeing the gorillas depends on the movements of the gorilla family on that particular day.
In Uganda and DR Congo you can find four different areas from which to begin the gorilla tracking, They are each between 2 and 7 hours driving from the other. Therefore your choice of accommodation also makes a big difference the options of the gorilla group you can visit and vice versa.
When you book your tour well in advance, you can give us your preference of Ugandan gorilla group you wish to visit. Gorilla permits are sold out far in advance, so it might be that Kisoro Tours Uganda has to choose from the few remaining permits for your dates.
When you are not that fit and you can’t walk long for about 4-6 hours distances going up and down, we advise you to go tracking in Rwanda, In Rwanda all tracking leave from the same point, where rangers will select easier and more difficult tracking according to your fitness leveling from Kinigi park head offices, gorilla tracking in Rwanda is more expensive it cost $1500 per person while in Uganda permit cost $700 per person for both high season in month of Jun, July, August September and December an in Laow Season in the month of March, April, May and November we offer discount on some of our gorilla safari packages contact us for details.
