Gorilla trekking Holidays top the list of things to do in Uganda, Rwanda and Congo. There are only about 1000 mountain gorillas left in the wild and these can be found in the Bwindi impenetrable national park, Mghahinga gorilla national park in Uganda, Volcanoes national park in Rwanda or Virunga national park in DR Congo. At Adventure in the wild safaris, we offer several packages for Gorilla Trekking Holidays ranging from short 3 to 3 days trips, to the longer multi day trips combining gorillas and other wildlife or adventures.
Where to go for your Gorilla Trekking Holidays: Uganda, Rwanda, or Congo?
Since there are three available destinations for gorilla trekking, one may ask where they should go for the safari. It should be noted that the gorilla trekking experience in itself is the same across board, however there are other factors to consider which may affect you before, during or after the gorilla trekking safari including the following:
Price of the gorilla trekking permit: The Rwanda Gorilla trekking Permit costs $1500 as compared to the Uganda Gorilla trekking permit of $600 ($700 from July 1st 2020) and $400 for the Congo gorilla trekking permit. Therefore if you are budget traveler, Uganda is the best destination for your gorilla trekking Holidays because the permit price is lesser than that of Rwanda, but also there are lesser extra costs as compared to DR Congo
Security during your gorilla trekking Safari: Security is one of the biggest priorities for tourists, while visiting any country. Rwanda and Uganda are very secure and safe destinations therefore your gorilla trekking Holiday to Uganda and Rwanda will be secure. DR Congo on the other side experiences some conflicts and is still somehow unstable. However if you are a hardliner tourist, we can still organize for you a safari there.
Travel time to and from the Gorilla national parks: The distance from Kigali to Volcanoes national park is only two hours, as compared to the 8 hours it requires you to move from Kampala to Bwindi Impenetrable national park. Therefore if you want a shorter drive, you can land in Kigali and drive for only 4-5 hours to the Bwindi Impenetrable national park in Uganda.
