Rwanda has raised the price of Gorilla Tracking by 50% – In Uganda Gorilla Permits are 500 USD – Rwanda has cut out a large part of potential visitors to their gorilla groups due to price where many a person simply cannot afford 750 USD. Uganda on the other hand is inviting people by keeping the your visit with the gentle Mountain Gorillas to 500 USD – that is a savings of 250 usd over Rwanda. It is a wise move and keeps the doors open for those who want to visit the Mountain Gorillas who are on a budget, to them 750 USD is too high.
Rwanda is not the only country with Mountain Gorillas – there is also the Democratic Republic of Congo and Uganda. While Rwanda can take any action they so want in regards to the price of gorilla permits – the client, the customer, the potential visitor to Rwanda will decide with their choice as to where to track Mountain Gorillas and many will choose Uganda or the Democratic Republic of Congo – based on price (tracking in the Congo is not advised to a conflict going on). There are however other reasons Uganda is the best country for Mountain Gorilla trekking.
Why Go Mountain Gorilla Tracking in Uganda?
- Price: To go Gorilla trekking in Uganda costs 500 USD a person – not 750 USD – it is still affordable in Uganda and allows a larger segment of society to visit the mountain gorillas of Uganda. Price is not everything in life – here we are dealing with mountain gorillas – do you want to pay 750 USD for a permit or 500 USD for the same experience – a one hour visit with the mountain gorillas.
- Setting: In Uganda most lodging that caters to those who want to visit the Mountain Gorillas at Bwindi Impenetrable Forest is located away from villages, human settlements and is in, near or overlooking Bwindi Impenetrable Forest (UNESCO World Heritage Site). The lodgings are not in a busy town, but for the most part are a part of an ancient primeval forest. That makes a huge difference – in Rwanda – for the most part – unless you have a lot of money for lodging – you are in another African Town – something that takes away from the feeling of tracking the gorillas in the wild of an ancient African Rainforest.
