Trekking Gorillas in Africa

Trekking Gorillas in Africa Kampala Adventure

Mountain gorilla trekking in Africa is a adventure done in Uganda, Rwanda and DR Congo. Gorillas in Uganda live in the forest of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and Mgahinga Gorilla National Park in Kigaezi sub region. Gorillas also live in the Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda and the Virunga National Park in the Democratic Republic of Congo. These are the only countries and parks where mountain gorillas in Africa are found.

To visit gorillas in any of the places above, one is required to book a gorilla permit, which is an entry ticket to the park for the trekking adventure. In Uganda, a gorilla permit is at USD 700 and in Rwanda at USD 1500 and in Congo at USD 400. It is always advisable to book a permit early enough to avoid missing out on given dates as these permits are sold on first come, first serve basis. High season months running from June to October and December to February are when permits are highly competitive in Uganda. Given the unpredictable security situation in Congo and the expensive gorilla permits in Rwanda, puts Uganda in a position of offering the best gorilla safari tours about other countries.

Once you book a permit with any tour company like Speedway Safaris, you will be assured of trekking gorillas and do other activities as per agreed itinerary. A gorilla trip especially in Uganda may be for 1 day, 2 days or 3 days to bwindi or Mgahinga National Park. As long as you choose the best gorilla tour company, you will get the finest experience in the jungle.
