Doesn’t Rwanda have a better Gorilla Trekking Experience than Uganda?
That is pure “Hogwash.” The Reality is that Uganda has done a poor job marketing itself as the best Gorilla destination in Africa. On the other hand, Rwanda has excelled in promoting itself as the Home of Mountain Gorillas. One example is the purported 40 Million Dollar Arsenal Premier football Team “Visit Rwanda” on the uniforms contract.
International Tour Operators, Travel Writers, Self-Appointed Besserwissers, and So-called Travel Forum Experts have created and perpetuated Rwanda’s myths about the Mountain Gorillas. That the Gorilla encounter experience is better in Rwanda. The truth is that Rwanda has a portion of the remaining Mountain Gorillas. Uganda, not Rwanda, has over half of the remaining Mountain Gorillas, and half of that remaining number is in Bwindi Impenetrable.
Rwanda has been the darling of the media and international travel promoters. It goes back to the Blockbuster Movie “Gorillas in the Mist,” which depicts Dian Fossey’s work with the Mountain Gorillas in Rwanda. Rwanda has become a miniature Singapore of Africa powerhouse only helps. Unlike Kampala, Nairobi, or other African capitals, Kigali, Rwanda is a model city of Africa.
Tourists in the 21st Century do their research and find a safe alternative, and that is affordable Uganda. Uganda is the T.J.Maxx of Gorilla Tourism, where the best is still affordable without any compromise in the Quality of the Experience.
Unfortunately, many do not research where their money stretches further. If they researched price and value, they would find out that a Gorilla Safari usually is half the price in Uganda of what it is in Rwanda. Do the math. That is a chunk of change—affordable Gorilla Safaris in Uganda without compromising quality in lodging or experience.
Affordable Gorilla Safaris in Uganda
It is Uganda that is synonymous with Safe and Affordable Gorilla Trekking!
Uganda has become Africa’s Premier Mountain Gorilla Destination due to price, affordability, and quality of experience. The Un-promoted Affordability of Gorilla Trekking Safaris has led to “The Great Trekker Migration to Uganda.” Rwanda has chosen the luxury Nordstrom’s Department Store route. Uganda, without any specific Gorilla marketing assistance except Permit prices remaining at 700 USD, has become the affordable, safe, premier Gorilla Trekking Destination.
The experience matters and not the country you are trekking in.
Uganda became the Gorilla Trekking Destination of Choice without an Affordability campaign by the Uganda Tourism Board and Ministry of Tourism. Rwanda receives many great reviews for a country striving to be the Singapore of Africa, and Rwanda focuses exclusively on the High-End market.
Rwanda does not understand that a passion for mountain gorillas does not mean a love for a country. They do not know that the price of a Permit does matter.
Rwanda has Ellen DeGeneres in its Corner. Additionally, the Arsenal British Premier Football Team Players wearing “Visit Rwanda” on their Shirts does not mean that Gorilla Trekkers will blindly follow. Today, trekkers do their research and choose the gorilla destination that suits them.
Gorilla Trekkers do their research looking for the best Financial Option without compromising the experience. They understand that just a bit of increased Drivetime takes one to affordable Uganda. That is something the Uganda Tourism Board, the Minister of Tourism, and the Junior Minister of Tourism never bring up. We, however, do so, as well as some other Gorilla Tour Operators.
