Uganda is renowned for its incredible wildlife, and one of the most popular experiences for nature enthusiasts is a gorilla safari. Uganda is home to almost half of the world's remaining mountain gorillas, making it an ideal destination for observing these majestic creatures up close in their natural habitat.
The best and top destination for gorilla safaris is none other than Uganda the pearl of Africa. In Uganda gorillas are seen in two national parks, that is Bwindi Impenetrable national park and Mgahinga gorilla national park. Bwindi Impenetrable National Park offers a unique and immersive gorilla trekking experience. Treks can be challenging due to the park's dense vegetation, but the effort is worth it when you encounter gorillas in their natural environment.
Gorilla trekking in Uganda is enjoyed year-round, but the dry seasons from June to August and December to February are generally considered the best time for gorilla safaris. During these periods, the trails are less muddy, making trekking easier. However, it's essential to note that gorilla permits are required regardless of the season.
Gorilla trekking permits are required to visit the gorillas in Uganda, and they are supposed to be obtained in advance. A gorilla permit in Uganda costs $700 USD per person and is only bought from Uganda Wildlife Authority (UWA) through African Adventure Travelllers. Gorilla permits are always limited in number to ensure conservation efforts and minimize human impact on the gorillas' habitat. It's advisable to book permits well in advance, as they are always in high demand.
