Who wouldn’t want to have an encounter with the famous mountain gorillas in Uganda? Almost all tourists who travel to Uganda book this activity as well and due to the competition, gorilla trekking permits can be hard to secure especially in the peak season. Reservations made several months before are recommended so as we secure the permits in advance and be rest assured that you have one or more permits secured in your names prior to your day of safari to Uganda. This gorilla trekking Uganda permits guide mainly reviews everything concerning the permits and will help you plan your trip easily.

Our Gorilla Trekking Uganda price isn’t so high, permits go for $600 each during the peak season and $450 during the low season. This fee is paid to Uganda Wildlife Authority (UWA) and is not refundable, more reason as to why you should only secure one when you are sure of making a destination to Uganda to see mountain gorillas.

These permits cannot be reused once the scheduled date elapses, they are retained at the national parks upon carrying out the Gorilla Tracking activity. Once you lose your gorilla trekking permits, Uganda Wildlife Authority in most cases won’t issue a replacement for it, more reason as to why you should take good care of them. However, this shouldn’t worry you because the safety of the permits is definitely in the hands of our guides, we take good care of them on your behalf to avoid any uncertainties that may arise.

Lastly, Mountain Gorilla Tracking requires you to be at least 15 years of age. Gorilla Trekking Permits can be obtained for two only two different national parks, Mgahinga Gorilla National Park and Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park. The scenario in Mgahinga Gorilla National Park is a bit uncertain because the Mountain Gorillas that live in the park keep moving back and forth to DRC and Rwanda but this shouldn’t worry you because we usually pick the best day for you to carry out Gorilla Tracking.
