New gorilla permit prices for Uganda 2020 to 2023

New gorilla permit prices for Uganda 2020 to 2023

New gorilla permit prices for Uganda 2020 to 2023: Starting from 1st July 2020, gorilla permit price in Uganda will be increased from $600 to $700 per person, after many consolations with different stakeholders Uganda Wildlife Authority has made a decision to increase gorilla permit price for both Bwindi impenetrable forest national park and in Mgahinga gorilla national park. This new new gorilla permit prices for Uganda 2020 to 2023 was set after involving all local safari companies under their association called “Uganda tour Operators Association” just to make sure that this increment doesn’t affect Uganda tourism and Ugandan tour operators supported the move of Uganda Wildlife Authority to increase gorilla permit price from $600 to $700.

 Why coming up with new gorilla permit price for Uganda?

All tourism stakeholders in Uganda agreed and like the move of increasing permit price so that more efforts and money put in conserving of Uganda mountain gorillas which was one of the main reason to why new gorilla permit price for Uganda in 2020 to 2023 was introduced. If you buy Uganda gorilla permit you be contributing indirectly to conservation of endangered mountain gorillas in Uganda because most of the revenue collected from gorilla permits sales are put into various conservation projects in different national parks.

As gorilla trekking destination, Uganda is still cheaper if you compare $700 and $1500 per person for Rwanda, this means that Uganda will still receive more tourist because of its gorilla permit affordability, I believe there not many travelers willing to pay $1500 in Rwanda when in Uganda its only $700 and remember a part from the permit price, gorilla trekking experience in both countries is the same.

 Take a NOTE that Uganda’s Bwindi impenetrable forest is a home to more than half of world’s population of mountain gorillas, 2018 mountain gorilla census bring the total number of mountain gorilla to 1,063 and half of them lives in Uganda which means that also there is more gorilla permits available in Uganda because there is more habituated gorilla families

Uganda is also the only place where you can participate mountain gorilla habituation process in Rushaga sector Bwindi impenetrable forest national park, gorilla habituation permits cost $1500 and you allowed to spend up to 4 hours interaction with the wild gorillas undergoing habituation posses/training, on this habituation tour you will be guided by professional researchers and park ranger guides, every gorilla family before its open for tourism it has to go habituation process whereby researchers and rangers has visit a given gorilla family for 2 years teach it to get used to humans presence, during habituation process researchers gets to know different characters for different gorilla individuals and other social behaviors of each gorilla.

How to book with the new gorilla permit prices for Uganda 2020 to 2023?

Gorilla permit booking remains the same, you still book your Uganda gorilla permit directly from Uganda Wildlife Authority or through local tour operators like us Kisoro tours we have over 15 year experience of booking Uganda gorilla permits for individuals and international companies, our Uganda gorilla safaris can start and day throughout the year and you can choose to start from Kigali Rwanda on anywhere in Uganda, we recommend that you book your gorilla trekking permit least 6 months to a year in advance in order to secure permit for your preferred day and date because Uganda gorilla permits are on high demand.
