There are moments when you really feel tired about ordinary gorilla trekking safaris and want to enjoy it in another setting. Of all the tourists who book Uganda gorilla safaris, only a few book luxury gorilla trekking safaris in Uganda reason being the budget seems high for them in certain cases and considering the fact that a gorilla permit costs $ 450 in the low season and $ 600 in the high season, this alone makes the price of the safari a bit high compared to other kinds of safaris like wildlife tours in Uganda. If you’ve been to Uganda before for a budget gorilla trekking safari then i suggest you save more money and try any of our luxury gorilla trekking safaris for a whole new experience in terms of accommodation, meals, safari vehicle and other services.

What makes luxury gorilla trekking safaris more special that the ordinary packages? for a luxury setting, you could have a possibility of carrying out 2 gorilla treks or even 3 gorilla treks all in Uganda and Rwanda combined. This means if the first day of your luxury gorilla trekking safaris isn’t good in terms of gorilla watching, let’s say you only see a few mountain gorillas in Bwindi Forest bound Bwindi Impenetrable National Park or Mgahinga Gorilla National Park, the rest of the days of your luxury gorilla trekking safaris won’t disappoint you as you will at least have a possibility of spotting more mountain gorillas.
Another obstacle can also be climate, remember trekking these primates isn’t fun when it rains because they tend to take covers in their respective shelters in forests just like humans do when rain begins to fall. This alone can make you spot few but with luxury gorilla trekking safaris that have 2 gorilla treks, you don’t have to worry about this because your following days will compensate for the previous bad days.
