Following the recent 100% increment in the Rwanda Gorilla permits, the world travelers are shifting focus from the Rwanda gorilla safaris to gorilla trekking in Uganda.

At only four hours drive from Kigali – the Rwanda’s capital, Bwindi Impenetrable National Park along with Mgahinga Gorilla National Park – the two sites where gorilla safaris in Uganda are carried out have emerged as the prefect cost effective alternative to the highly priced gorillas of Rwanda.

Now like in the month of November, the Ugandan Gorilla permit will be sold at $450 compared to the $1500 of Rwanda presenting the traveler a chance of saving $1050 on a similar experience.

In addition, the travelers find it easy to cover the 4 hours on road from Kigali to Bwindi other than driving the 8 – 10 hours from Kampala. This has made it preferable to do a gorilla safari in Uganda while flying in and out of Kigali International Airport.

The expatriates and the visiting officials attending International Conferences in Kigali along with travelers on business trips can always take advantage of the weekend breaks to undertake this remarkable Uganda gorilla trekking safari experience. A minimum of 2 days is enough to organize the respective trip.
