As Rwanda increases its gorilla permit price, Uganda decided to maintain the best gorilla permit price, currently Uganda gorilla tracking permit cost only $600 per person compared to Rwanda gorilla permit which cost $1500 per person this means that if you do your gorilla safari in Uganda instead of Rwanda you will be saving $900 on each permit.
Gorilla tracking in Uganda is done in both Bwindi impenetrable forest national park and Mgahinga gorilla national park, Bwibdi forest of Uganda is also a home to more than half of the world population of mountain gorillas, this means that Uganda has more gorilla permits available on daily bases which means that the chances of getting tracking permit on any day of your choice is high which is not the case in Rwanda where one have to a year before.
Uganda has not done much in marketing its gorillas while Rwanda has done very well marketing its self as the best gorilla tracking destination in Africa, it is only 2 and half hour’s drive from Kigali Airport to reach volcanoes national park for Rwanda gorilla trek while it is 9 hours drive from Entebbe Airport to reach bwindi forest for Uganda gorilla tracking which is a big advantage for Rwanda, but because of the price differences currently Uganda is the best gorilla tracking destination for example one can easily go for 3 day Uganda gorilla tracking tour booked through Kisoro Tours Uganda at only $1500 which includes one gorilla permit per person, mid-range accommodation for 2 nights, all transport in the 4×4 safari car, all meals, drinking water, services of full-time English speaking guide/driver and all park entrances while in Rwanda $1500 is only for one gorilla permit
