No other country gives you more Gorilla Safari Choices than Uganda
Only Uganda gives you more Gorilla Trekking Choices and Options for your Safari
Gorilla 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, and it is only in Uganda where you can choose how you want to travel 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.
You can only choose between two distinct and different habitats in Uganda.
It is only in Uganda where you can more time with the Gorillas, and you have no choice in Rwanda or the Democratic Republic of Congo.
It is only in Uganda that you can choose to be a participant in the Gorilla Habituation Process. You can only be an observer in Rwanda or the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Only in Uganda can you choose to encounter the gorillas with fewer than eight participants on the Gorilla Habituation Experience.
In the post-COVID of travel, discerning African travelers want a one-of-a-kind experience. They want options, choices, exclusivity, and privacy, and Uganda meets those expectations and allows travelers 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 Affordability 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 in Rwanda. You have the added plus of a safe, guerrilla-free 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 the 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. Four trailheads lead into the forest. The park also has the m, most habituated gorilla families to visit, and it is the choice of most trekkers in Uganda.
3. Choose More Time with the Gorillas
Only in Uganda can you 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 are 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 choosing the family you want to trek with, some limitations and parameters by which the Uganda Wildlife Authority rangers determine which group you will travel with. The only exception is the Nyakagezi family in Mgahinga Gorilla Park.
Your input determines the gorilla group that you will track, depending on your fitness level, age, and the ranger’s decision.
Our driver/guide assists in the process, and you often trek the group you like. Permits are issued for an area and not for a particular group, and 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 will change them at your request. Our online Safari Itineraries are samples. We design and create your primate safari with your input. You make the choices; 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 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 its Primates.
The Country of the Big-7 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, and we 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 of 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
