Gorilla permit promotion

Did you know …? April and May are two of the best months to visit the gorillas in Uganda.


Because during these months, the Uganda Wildlife Authority reduces the price of a gorilla tracking permit from $600 per person to just $450 per person. For East African residents with a work permit, the cost of a gorilla permit is reduced from $500 per person to $400.

Have you ever dreamed of meeting Uganda’s mountain gorillas?

Well now is your chance!

All gorilla tracking permits must be purchased in advance. Christmas and mid-summer months can get booked up many months in advance but during the low season months of April, May and November, permits are easier to buy – and are discounted.
