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.
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.
Volcanoes Safaris’ Bwindi Lodge is a perfect base for your Uganda gorilla tracking adventure.
Bwindi Lodge receives such positive feedback that even the gorillas drop by occasionally too!
Take advantage of the discounted gorilla permits and let Volcanoes Safaris help you plan your once-in-a-lifetime gorilla tracking Bwindi adventure. The April / May Uganda gorilla permit promotion is valid until 31st May 2016.

Tracking chimpanzees in their natural habitat, as they swing from the branches in the canopy high above the forest floor is nothing short of exhilarating. The chimps effortlessly cross and scamper through the trees above the gorge, and visitors on the other hand must cross the river using natural bridges in order to keep up with the chimps. So although the walk usually lasts only 2–3 hours, descending the steep gorge and crossing the log bridges over the river requires some agility and fitness.
Chimpanzee tracking is also available in nearby Kalinzu, a forest reserve 30 minutes drive from Kyambura Gorge Lodge where there is a community of about 40 habituated chimpanzees.
