Gorilla Trekking in Uganda

Posted on:

Since the steep increase in price of gorilla permits in Rwanda last year, speculation has been ongoing to see if Uganda would follow suit. So, it’s great news for visitors that the increase is only by $100 and a brilliant move to keep demand for gorilla tracking in Uganda.
In addition, Aerolink recently announced that they are now flying from Entebbe to Kihihi (Bwindi’s closest airstrip) three times daily, allowing tourists more accessible routes into the tracking areas. Uganda is working tirelessly to give the tourists a better experience and easier access.

Mountain Gorillas are an endangered species so, for this reason, it’s crucial permits are in place to protect and preserve their privacy. Permits also help to save mountain gorillas from human diseases that can be caused by too many visitors or crowds. Money from permits also contributes to the conservation of both wildlife as well as the local community.

There has never been a better time to visit Uganda to see these amazing animals. But there is so much more to do while here. Uganda has to be one of the World’s best birding spots and it is a wonderful place to see the plains animals, crocodiles and hippos on the Nile and a chance to track chimpanzees as well.
