In this world, there is time for everything and at Encounter Africa Safaris we believe that the time for you to plan a gorilla habituation experience safari to Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is now 2017 before families used for this experience are fully habituated. There several reasons why do gorilla habituation experience now or why you should book your gorilla habituation permit now irrespective of gorilla trekking as an option. Bwindi Impenetrable National Park offers to optional activities for tourists to interact will the endangered mountain gorillas. The most popular activity to engage with mountain gorillas is gorilla trekking and this can be done in three countries of Rwanda(Volcanoes National Park), Democratic Republic of Congo (Virunga National Park) and the two park found in Uganda (Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and Mgahinga National Park). Unlike gorilla trekking that is present in Uganda, DRC and Rwanda, Gorilla habituation experience is only in Uganda and is currently on the southern part of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park due to the fact that it is where Uganda is having one gorilla family under habituation. Tourists must part with USD1500.00 per person to enjoy interacting with mountain gorillas. With this experience, tourists are allowed to spend a massive four hours compared to the one hour that is allowed for gorilla trekking.
Reason why do gorilla habituation experience now in 2017
In Uganda, one can book to do gorilla habituation experience in the southern part of Bwindi National Park. Bushawo and Bikingi have been the two gorilla families under habituation but information coming from this part of the forest is that Bushawo is now fully habituated (yet to be confirmed) leaving Bushaho as the only gorilla family open for gorilla habituation experience in 2017. Why do gorilla habituation experience can simply be explained by the fact that if Bikingi gorilla family is fully habituated, there is a possibility that gorilla habituation experience will be temporarily suspended until other gorilla families are habituated. Chances are also that Bikingi gorilla family has less than a year to be fully habituated. We therefore call upon all those interested in gorilla habituation safaris to contact Encounter Africa safaris for permits and other services in 2017.
