The price of a gorilla permit differs from one country to another. In Uganda, a gorilla permit cost USD600 for foreign none residents, USD500 for foreign residents and approximately USD100 for East Africans holding identity cards from Uganda, Rwanda, Tanzania, Kenya and Burundi. In Rwanda, the situation is a bit different and the price is quite high. A gorilla permit in Rwanda costs USD750.00 per person for foreign none residents and there is no set price for East Africans as it is in Uganda. When it comes to Democratic republic of Congo, the price of a gorilla permit per person for a foreign none resident is a bout USD350.00 but the fact that the country itself is not politically stable, tourists prefer trekking mountain gorillas in Uganda and Rwanda. Uganda further offers low season gorilla permits for the months of April, may and November. Foreign none residents part with USD350 while Foreign residents with working permits pay USD300.00 to trek gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park or Mgahinga National Park. At this moment in time we are not sure whether the price of a gorilla permit in Rwanda will be lowered to follow Uganda.
