Instead of the usual 01-hour gorilla viewing time. You could opt to go for the full day Gorilla Habituation Experience which allows you 4-hours with wild mountain gorillas in the Rushaga area of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. If you choose Gorilla habituation, then there will be an extra charge for the Gorilla Habituation Permit and accommodation – Gorilla habituation permits cost US$1500 each. This, however, changes the itinerary since gorilla habituation is only done in Rushaga area of southern Bwindi. Read more “Gorilla Habituation Experience in Uganda”.

Forego long drive times from Entebbe or Kampala which typically last 9 – 10 hours by flying into Kigali – Rwanda where it is just a 4 – 5 hours drive (i8ncluding border crossing time) to Rushaga area of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest.

You can extend your 3 Day Uganda Gorilla Safari  to 06 days with Gorilla and Chimpanzee Tracking, wildlife game drives and a boat Safari all at an affordable Low season April, May & November discount rate. Low season gorilla permits cost USD450, and Low Season Chimpanzee permits cost USD100.

If you would like any amendments made to your 3 Day Uganda Gorilla Safari above to include gorilla habituation experience in Uganda or would prefer flying in through Kigali to trek gorillas in Uganda, please let us know.

Remember all our gorilla and wildlife safari experiences are small group holidays (admitting 02 – 06 persons in a group), and can be customized to suit your interests – thank you for choosing Realm Africa Safaris.


IMPORTANT TO NOTE:

**Treat all the above information as a guide – we will make necessary adjustments depending on gorilla permits, and accommodation available at the time of booking this tour. Of course, we will inform you before making any adjustments to your itinerary.
