Reasons why USD1500 Rwanda Gorilla permit price is good for Uganda

One of the so many reasons why USD1500 Rwanda gorilla permit price is good for Uganda is that it makes Uganda and affordable destination for gorilla tracking. With USD1500, one has an option of doing gorilla habituation experience in Uganda. Gorilla habituation is a new and unique experience which was introduced by Uganda Wildlife Authority and aimed at those who want to spend more time with the endangered mountain gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. This experience allows tourists to spend four hours with mountain gorillas under habituation. Gorilla habituation is done in the southern part of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park where new families are still under habituation. Tourists are given an opportunity to move with a group of researchers during their daily work of habituating mountain gorillas. Tourists can directly participate in all activities of the day before returning back to the lodge. This therefore means that tourists are now looking at gorilla habituation experience as a worthy activity to spend USd1500 than resorting to buying Rwanda gorilla permit which allows only one hour with mountain gorillas.

The other reason why USD1500 Rwanda gorilla permit is good for Uganda is that Uganda Wildlife Authority has declared that it has no intension of increasing the price of Uganda gorilla permit following Rwanda’s hike in price from USD750 to USD1500. This therefore will see tourists numbers booking Uganda gorilla permits increasing. This therefore means that Uganda is likely to benefit from the price hike in Uganda in the short run. Besides the above, Uganda still offer discounted low season gorilla permits during the months of April, May and November which cost only USD450.00. This therefore makes Uganda and all round and affordable destination for gorilla trekking in the whole world. Do you want to visit Uganda or Rwanda?
