- More Gorilla Permits: Uganda has half of the endangered Mountain Gorillas. The Country has more Habituated (used to Humans) Gorilla Families, which means that Uganda has the most available permits for Gorilla Trekking.
- Safe-Secure Guerrilla-Free Trekking: Uganda is the only Mountain Gorilla Destination with no guerrilla acuities in the last 20 years. Uganda is safe for Gorilla Trekkers.
- Spend More Time with the Gorillas: On a Gorilla Habituation Experience Safari, you spend up to four hours with a Gorilla Family, and there are only four participants. The Permit Cost is $1,500.
- Two Parks with different Habitats where you can Track Gorillas: You can choose to track Gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest or Mgahinga Gorilla Park.

Bwindi Impenetrable Forest is made of ridges and valleys, while Mgahinga Gorilla Park trekking takes Place on the sides of the Virunga Volcanoes.
- A more excellent Choice of Lodges: There is a wider variety of Gorilla Lodges to choose from in Uganda than in either Rwanda or Uganda.
