It is for Real – Save 50% or more on a Gorilla Tracking Safari

Posted by on December 30, 2018

A 3-Day Gorilla Safari in Uganda is 1/2 the Price of a similar Safari in Rwanda

Do the Math – no Gimmicks – Save 50% or more on a Gorilla Tracking Safari in Uganda than what you would pay in Rwanda without compromise


Save 50% or more on a Gorilla Tracking Safari – 1/2 the price what you would in Rwanda.  There are no gimmicks, full-board mid-range of a luxury lodge, transport, and yes, Gorilla Permit, bottled water, 1 hour with a Gorilla Family in safe and secure Mgahinga Gorilla Park or Bwindi Impenetrable Forest.  a 3-Day midrange, quality Lodge Gorilla Safari in Uganda costs you $1,200 plus (2 participants-less if more participants) from Kigali – 3 or 4-hour drive depending on which Gorilla Park in Uganda we use, the same safari in Rwanda – over $2,400 – that is a $1,200 savings per person.

This is not special – this is the regular price – there is nothing stripped down about the above, Luxury Safari Clients will save even more money.  Most importantly, there is nothing less about a Gorilla Trekking Safari in Uganda, it simply costs less money.  Reason   

You Win – You Save 50% or more on a Gorilla Tracking Safari where the experience is the same.  The Gorillas in Rwanda that seeing them comes at a premium price, the same applies to the Ugandan Gorillas, they have no clue that seeing them cost less than over in Rwanda.  The Pre-Tracking Crew that goes out in Uganda finding the Gorilla Family, the Rangers that take you on the Gorilla Trek are no less skilled than their Rwandan counterpart, they are equally skilled  and highly dedicated individuals with a passion for Gorilla Conservation. 

What gives?  Where’s the catch?  There has to be something lesser about a Gorilla Safari in Uganda than in Rwanda?  The only lesser is the price of the Gorilla Trekking Permit and the Cost of full-board lodging per night with en-suite bath. There are two things that you get in Rwanda that are not offered in Uganda. There simply is no fine print – what you see is what you get- a 50% or more off Gorilla Safari depending on what type of lodging is used.

At the Gorilla Trekking orientation, you have cultural Dance performance and are given Complimentary Rwandan Coffee or Tea. 

That is not done in Uganda – however, we could be persuaded to bring a flask or Coffee, Ugandan and our Driver could perform a cultural dance, would not always be a pretty sight, depending on the driver but then you need about the money that you saved on a Gorilla Tracking Safari in Uganda.


Save 50% or more on a Gorilla Tracking Safari All Year Long-even during the High Season


It is for Real – Save 50% or more on a Gorilla Tracking Safari – You Get more for less in Uganda, the Pearl of  Africa, East Africa’s Premier Primate Destination where your Gorilla Dollar simply stretches further because the permit price is $600 in Uganda versus $900 in Rwanda and the lodging tends to run lower in most instances we used Lake Mulehe Lodge, a mid-range Lodge near Rushaga, if we used Gorilla Safari Lodge in Rushaga, the exclusive mount Gahinga Lodge in Mgahinga Gorilla Park or Clouds mountain Gorilla Lodge the savings in dollars would even be greater.

Uganda has more when it comes to Gorillas – In Uganda, you will find over half of the remaining Mountain.  There are almost twice the number of Daily Gorilla Permits than in Rwanda. There are two Gorilla Parks in Uganda where you can Track Gorillas, Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and Mgahinga Gorilla Park where you replicate the tracking experience found in Rwanda on the side of the Virunga Volcanoes.

Will this 50% less Gorilla Safari Price remain the same – Nothing is forever, but the present price difference will remain throughout 2019,  Uganda Wildlife Authority will review the Gorilla permit Pricing Structure in 2019 for 2020 and someone may decide to change the price of Ugandan Gorilla Permits from $600 to a higher price.  Rwanda may also change their mind about permit pricing and reduce the price. 

No Compromise in Quality or Experience;  There is nothing less, you are not settling for Yugo like experience (cheapest, but most problematic car in the world) – you are getting the best for less.  We call Uganda the T.J. Maxx of Gorilla Tourism, top-notch merchandise for less, Uganda remains as the affordable and safe country when it comes to Gorilla Trekking. In 2019 it is the Premier and Best Primate Destination.

Uganda stretches your Gorilla Dollars further – Just do the math.
