In Uganda, gorilla trekking is carried out only in Bwindi Impenetrable national park and Mgahinga national park, western Uganda. Bwindi Impenetrable national park currently has over 13 habituated gorilla groups which are visited regularly by 8 visitors per group per day for one hour. Therefore Bwindi Impenetrable national park gives out about 104 gorilla trekking permits per day to visitors.
Gorilla permits tend to sell out quickly due to excessive demand. The permits in Uganda are affordable compared to Rwanda’s permits hence creating high competition for the permits every year. Uganda’s gorilla permits are sold at USD 600 while Rwanda’s is at USD 1500 both for staying with the shy spicies for one hour therefore making Uganda’s gorilla permits having high demand and pressure.This explains further why you should book your gorilla permits in advance to avoid inconveniences and disappointments when already in Uganda.
