Uganda Mountain Gorilla Tracking Permits

\r\nThe African Mountain Gorillas in Uganda are one of the main attractions to visitors to Uganda.  Mountain Gorilla Tracking (Trekking) permits are a much sought after commodity and with a small number of people allowed to track each day, it takes a lot of planning to ensure an opportunity of the tracking of Mountain Gorillas in Uganda.  Since the situation in the Democratic Republic of Congo is unstable presently, there is more pressure on Mountain Gorilla Tracking Permits in Uganda.  Fortunately we also have Rwanda that is just a hop across the border from Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and at times the Mgahinga Gorilla Park area.\r\n\r\nYour best bet for obtaining a Mountain Gorilla Tracking Permit is to book a Mountain Gorilla Tracking Safari with us either as a 3 day safari or as part of a longer safari taking in other Uganda National Parks such as the Chimpanzees at Kibale, the wildlife, birds and chimpanzees at Queen Elizabeth National Park.\r\nThe price of the Mountain Gorilla Permits are 500 USD each.  You must be at least 15 years of age.  Permits can be obtained for two different parks, Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park and Mgahinga Gorilla Park.  However the situation in Mgahinga is a bit more fluid, since the habituated Mountain Gorilla group there moves back and forth to Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo.\r\n\r\nSince we are a tour operator and registered as such in Uganda, we have a better opportunity to meet your schedule and if you book a Mountain Gorilla Tracking (Trekking) Safari with us we can be flexible to adjust the date of the gorilla tracking to fit into the overall safari itinerary we have for you.\r\nMost people going on a Mountain Gorilla Tracking (Trekking) Safari actually see them since your Guide is extremely knowledgeable about the area where your habituated group is located in.\r\nUpon completion of your successful Tracking (Trekking) Safari you will be issued a certificate by Uganda Wildlife Authority.\r\nThe 500USD may seem steep, but upon completion there is no mention of the money, but only a satisfaction of having seen these magnificent and rare animals.
