WHY YOU SHOULD CHOOSE TRACKING GORILLAS IN UGANDA

Gorilla safari tours in Uganda

Uganda Gorilla trekking offers an incredible wild Gorilla encounter that is worth every penny spent to see these close cousins of man in natural habitat. Uganda is home to half the world’s critically endangered mountain Gorillas with at total number of over 450 in the wild. These mountain Gorillas can be tracked in two places in Uganda; in the mystical forest of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and in Mgahinga Gorilla National Park. When it comes to why people prefer to do Gorilla Trekking Safaris in Uganda, it goes down mainly to these three factors;

The bigger number of Gorillas in Uganda as compared to its neighboring competitors is an appealing factor to most primate lovers, boasting with 11 habituated Gorilla families living in Bwindi forest and 1 habituated family found in Mgahinga-that is part of the Virunga mountain range that stretches across Congo, Uganda and Rwanda. Tourists coming in from the Uganda side have a chance to view these apes in both the parks to see how different the ones in Bwindi interact from the ones in Mgahinga.

The cost of Gorilla trekking safaris to Uganda is at a low $600 per permit for each individual as compared to that of Rwanda that was recently in May 2017 doubled from $750 USD to $1500 for each individual is also one of the deciding factors. The total cost of a Uganda Safari is more affordable than in other countries.  Going by the fact that trackers can get to see Gorillas in both countries, the high cost of going on an African adventure Safari for the same attraction in one has made visitors opt for Uganda.

Uganda offers more than just Gorilla Safaris tours as it is blessed with plenty of wildlife making it a more complete Wildlife safari destination. Visitors can get to see the uncommon tree climbing lions of Ishasha in Queen Elizabeth national park and also enjoy sightings of several birds with Uganda boasting of over 1070 species including the much sought-after Shoebill stork.

For a unique and memorable Gorilla trekking experience, a Gorilla Safari to Uganda should be on your bucket list.
