Only in Uganda – a Private and Exclusive Visit with a Gorilla Family
Your Personalized and Exclusive Private Gorilla Trek in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest – Uganda
Go on your own Personalized and Exclusive Private Gorilla Trek and have a private encounter with the Gentle Giants of the rainforest. It is just you, your family, or friends with the Gorillas on either the typical trek or the much sought-after Habituation Experience. You are accompanied by Uganda Wildlife Authority Rangers and a porter.
The words of David Attenborough would be fitting in describing a private Gorilla Encounter, “Spending time with these gentle creatures in their natural habitat was a profoundly moving experience.”
You can have your own Dian Fossey “Gorillas in the Mist” time with the largest Gorillas in the world, the Mountain Gorillas. They are not found in any zoo since they do not survive captivity.
Because of the COVID-19 Pandemic, there is now the 10-meter or 32 Feet distance rule and the wearing of protective facial masks while you are in the presence of a Gorilla Family. Both are sensible since they limit the transmission of diseases, including respiratory diseases. You can transmit illnesses to the Gorillas as they can transmit them to you, and the distance and facial masks prevent such transmissions.
You will not find much information about a Personalized and Exclusive Private Gorilla Trek in Uganda, but you can, and that is thousands of dollars less than in neighboring Rwanda.
The Cost of a Personalized and Exclusive Private Gorilla Trek in Uganda
The permit cost for a private, regular Gorilla Trek, which includes one hour with a Gorilla Family, is $5,600. You can have up to eight participants made up of friends or family.
The Permit Cost for a private Gorilla Habituation Experience is $6,000. Here you can have up to four of you on your private trek.
You will have Uganda Wildlife Rangers and porters accompany you, but no other tourists will be part of your trek.
The Uganda Private Gorilla Trek Price Advantage:
A Private Gorilla Trek in Rwanda will cost you $15,000 in Rwanda or $9,400 more than in Uganda for the regular Gorilla Trek. Uganda’s private Gorilla Habituation Experience will cost you $9,000 less than Rwanda’s one hour with a Gorilla Family at $15,000.
Additionally, Accommodations cost less in Uganda than in Rwanda. That includes Exclusive, Luxury, or Midrange Lodges.
Why a Private Gorilla Trek might be suitable for you:
The private Gorilla trek is ideal for those that want to share the Gorilla Encounter Experience with family or friends without any other tourists. There is only you, the rangers with the gorillas. You have the exclusive attention of the rangers and learn a lot about the habits and ways of a Gorilla Family.
In Addition, the private trek is ideal for Families with Teens that are fifteen years or older. Such a time would be a memorable experience that builds long-lasting bonds for your family.
The Private Gorilla Trek is ideal for photographers, whether you are an amateur or a professional. There are more opportunities for photos that you would not have with a regular Gorilla Trek and eight participants.
Those with disabilities who need more time and personal attention would benefit from a private trek because they would receive the attention and assistance that they need. This can include being carried into the Gorilla Family location on a Sedan Chair by a team of rotating porters.
Booking a Private Gorilla Trek:
We suggest that you plan and book your private Gorilla Trek at least six months in advance. Ideally during the months of February, March, September, and October. There are fewer tourists. If you plan and book one year in advance to the starting date of your safari, any month of the year will be possible. Be aware of our Safari Price Guarantee and our Flexible Booking Policy.
