Today we compare gorilla trekking in Rwanda with the experience of Bwindi gorilla habituation experience in Uganda. Gorilla habituation experience in Bwindi Impenetrable forest National Park is very different from Rwanda gorilla trekking, but the fact that these two gorilla activities have the same price, it is important to compare the two and see which one is better, affordable and worth the cost of fee $1,500 per permit and clients are allowed one hour with the gorillas in their natural habitat. Rwanda gorilla trekking experience is a luxurious adventure due to the cost of the permits for gorilla trekking, Rwanda gorilla trekking is best for luxury clients and not for the budget travelers. Earlier this year, Uganda wildlife Authority introduced a new activity (gorilla habituation experience) in Rushaga sector south of Bwindi impenetrable forest national park at a fee of $1500 per permit for one to participate in the habituation process, travelers on gorilla habituation, are given a period of four hours to be with the gorillas in their natural habitat, its main aim is to give clients more time with the gorillas compared to the normal gorilla trekking which is only one hour. Gorilla trekking Rwanda and gorilla habituation experience in Uganda, Bwindi sector have the same price for the permits. Now our main focus is to compare the two activities and study them.
Comparing Rwanda gorilla trekking and Bwindi gorilla habituation experience in terms of time spent with gorillas.
By contrasting Rwandan gorilla trekking and Bwindi gorilla habituation training, one has to pay for the benefits. While both experiences are at USD 1500, Rwanda’s gorilla trekking will only require you to spend an hour with a group of mountain gorillas, while the gorilla habituation trip would enable you to spend up to four hours with semi-habituated mountain gorillas. Therefore, now it’s the choice of the clients to either choose gorilla trekking in Rwanda and spend one hour with the gorillas or visit Uganda for gorilla habituation experience and spend four hours with the gorillas still under habituation.
Gorilla habituation is the act of visiting gorillas still under habituation until they are used to the sight of humans, the activity allows visitors not only to spend four hours with gorillas, but also you become an active participant in the habituation process which is not the case with gorilla trekking which involves viewing and photography of gorillas only in their natural habitat.
