Reserve Gorilla Permits / Gorilla trekking permits / Gorilla safaris / Gorilla Tours / Gorilla trekking in Uganda
Gorilla trekking safaris are very popular in Uganda and Rwanda, but before one travels to see the gentle mountain gorillas, one needs to reserve gorilla permits in order to be allowed to trek a habituated gorilla family.
Mountain gorillas are found only in three countries-Uganda (Bwindi Impenetrable Np and Mgahinga Gorilla NP), Rwanda (Volcanoes NP) and Congo (Virunga National park. To see them, you need to reserve gorilla trekking permits and then book your gorilla trekking safari depending on which country you want to visit

How far in advance should one reserve gorilla permits
The best time to reserve gorilla permits is as soon as one makes a decision to come for gorilla trekking. We recommend that you do pay for your gorilla trekking permits at least 6 months in advance to avoid disappointment on last minute decisions to come for the safari.
There are only about 1000 mountain gorillas in total living in Bwindi Impenetrable National park, Mgahinga Gorilla National park, Volcanoes National park and Virunga National park. They are highly endangered and for conservation reasons, only eight people can trek a gorilla family per day. There are very few habituated mountain gorillas open for gorilla trek and so the demand is so the demand is very high especially in high season (June-Oct and December to February). They are reserved on first come first served basis. Accommodations too get fully booked fast.
We do always have our ears on ground and so we can also make your gorilla trekking safari happened on the last minute. Just get in touch
