This will help you to plan your best budget tour based on facts. For example, you need to first budget for your gorilla permit. As long as you are interested in gorilla trekking in Uganda, Rwanda and or Democratic Republic of Congo, you need to know that the price of a gorilla permit is the same for all people. While you can negotiate on transport and accommodation, the price of a gorilla permit is the same for luxury and budget travelers. A gorilla permit costs USD600 in Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and Mgahinga National Park and or USd1500.00 in Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park.
