Uganda gives you more Gorilla Trekking Choices and Options

Posted by on March 5, 2021

No other country gives you more Gorilla Safari Choices than Uganda

Only Uganda gives you more Gorilla Trekking Choices and Options for your Safari

more Gorilla Trekking Choices and OptionsGorilla Safaris the way that you want, only Uganda gives you more Gorilla Trekking Choices and Options.

 Yes, there is more than one way to trek the Mountain Gorillas, something you can only do in Uganda. It is only Uganda where you can choose how you want to trek the forest’s gentle giants.

In Rwanda and DR Congo, there is only the traditional gorilla trek where you are with a gorilla family for one hour without choosing the terrain for your Trek.

It is only in Uganda that you can choose between two distinct and different habitats. 

It is only in Uganda where you can more time with the Gorillas. You have no choice in Rwanda or the Democratic Republic of Congo.

It is only in Uganda where you can choose to be a participant in the Gorilla Habituation Process. In Rwanda or the Democratic Republic of Congo, you can only be an observer.

It is only in Uganda where you can choose to encounter the gorillas with fewer than eight participants on the Gorilla Habituation Experience.

In the post-COVID of travel, the discerning African travelers want to have a one-of-a-kind-experience. They want options, choices, exclusivity, privacy. Uganda meets those expectations and gives a traveler the ability to choose what they want. It is no wonder that Uganda is the Premier Gorilla destination in Africa. 

Uganda gives you more Gorilla Trekking Choices and Options

1. Choose Safe Afordability Trekking Gorillas in Uganda

Uganda gives the gorilla trekker affordability where a safari encounter with the gentle giants is at least ($700 permits alone) half the price that it is in Rwanda.  You have the added plus of a safe, guerrilla-freee safari unlike in Virunga National Park in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

The safe affordability trekkers find in Uganda has made Uganda the premier mountain gorilla destination in africa.

2. Choose the Habitat and Terrain for your Gorilla Trek

You cannot do this in Rwanda or the Democratic Republic of Congo, but In Uganda you can choose the habitat and terrain where you want to trek the gentle giants of the forest.

You can choose Mgahinga Gorilla Park where like in Rwanda or Democratic Republic of Congo your trek takes place on the sides of the Virunga Volcano Chain. This is an excellent choice for those that want to get clear shots of the gorillas.

Bwindi Impenetrable Forest is the other park and habitat for gorilla trekking in Uganda. The setting is an ancient rainforest, a UNESCO world heritage site that CCN Travel named the most beautiful place in the world in 2019.

It is home to almost half of the endangered primates. There are four trailheads that lead into the forest. The park also has the m,ost habituated gorilla families to visit. It is the choice of most trekkers in Uganda.

3. Choose more Time with the Gorillas

It is only in Uganda where you can choose to be in the presence of a gorilla family for longer than one hour on the Gorilla Habituation Experience.  The Permits are $1,500 but trekkers find that the extra time and fewer participants is well worth it.

The added plus is that you are not just an observer but a participant in the habituation process which is also a one-of-a-kind-learning experience.

4. Choose the Gorilla Family you want to trek.

When it comes to choosing the Family that you want to trek, some limitations and parameters by which the Uganda Wildlife Authority rangers determine which group you will trek. The only exception is the Nyakagezi family in Mgahinga Gorilla Park.

Your input determines the gorilla group that you will track. It depends on your level of fitness, age, and the ranger’s decision.

Our driver/guide assists in the process, and most often, you trek the group you like. Permits are issued for an area and not for a particular group. The group determination is made on the day of the trek and not beforehand.

Focus on the Experience of your encounter with the Gentle Giants of the Forest.

5. Choose between the Value+ Plus mid-range and Luxury Safaris:

Kabiza Wilderness Safaris gives you a choice between our Value+ Midrange and Luxury  Safaris. The Experience of our clients is our focus.

We pick the lodges for your Safari based on what is best for you. We change them at your request. Our online Safari Itineraries are samples. We design and create your primate safari in accordance with your input. The choices are made by you, we suggest what we think is right for you.

Most Primate Safaris are specifically created for our clients, taking in all the preferences and choices that they gave us.

Please Note: We offer no Shoe-String or Budget Safaris. They do not measure up to the level of quality that trekkers expect and deserve. 

6. Choose the Gorilla Safari Add-Ons such as Chimpanzee Trekking:

Uganda gives you more choices, and that includes Gorilla Safari Add-Ons. Uganda is more than Primates.

It is the Country of the Big-7, which provides for all the wildlife you expect to see on an African Safari plus the Gentle Giants of the Forest and Chimpanzees.

Save travel time, save money, and in the words of Winston Churchill, “Focus on Uganda.” After all, Uganda is the Pearl of Africa. There is much to see and do in this most biodiverse county that you will miss during a three-day gorilla trekking safari.

Uganda is Africa condensed into one Country. At least, that is what Lonely Planet says. We happen to concur.

7. Choose the Country that you fly into and out of:

Entebbe International Airport is not the only international airport that serves Uganda. Unbeknown to many, Kigali International Airport is the other gateway into Uganda, especially Southwest Uganda, which includes Mgahinga Gorilla Park, Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, Lake Bunyonyi,, and Lake Mutanda.

For years, long before others, we stated on our website, “Fly into Rwanda and Trek Primates in Uganda. ‘Over 89% of our Clients fly into Kigali and go on Safari in Uganda, many flying out of Entebbe International Airport.

They save time and the wear and tear a nine-hour drive since you can access Bwindi Forest in 4 hours from Kigali and Mgahinga Gorilla Park in three-hours. You can choose a fly-in gorilla safari from Entebbe and eliminate any drive-times.

8. Choose the right Gorilla Tour Operator

We know all about Primates. We have been called gorilla match-makers. We know the ins and outs of Gorilla Trekking, from permits to the right lodges.

We give the power of choice. All of our Gorilla Trekking Safaris are private. There are no other participants but you. The Safari goes according to your timetable with no one else is involved.

We have a proven track record of over ten years of memorable Safaris. We have been on almost every gorilla trek ourselves. We check the lodges and hotels that we use regularly.

We are a Gorilla Matchmaker. We set up the date. The actual time is up to the gorilla family you are trekking in the wild.
