Every year, Kenya attracts a significant number of travelers who come to witness the Big Five and the Great Migration. However, now, tourists have the opportunity to extend their trip and do gorilla trekking in Uganda, right after their visit to various National Parks in Kenya. Although Kenya is renowned for its wildlife adventures, it does not house the magnificent mountain gorillas. In this case, travelers need to cross over to Uganda to encounter these incredible primates. Uganda is home to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and Mgahinga National Park, where visitors can enjoy a safe and thrilling gorilla trekking experience.
However, trekking in Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda and Virunga National Park in Congo is currently not safe for tourists. Many opt for Uganda’s mountain gorillas due to the low costs and safe environment for trekking. A gorilla permit in Uganda costs $700 per person per trek, while a permit in Rwanda is priced at $1500.00 per person per trek.
For those looking to add an unforgettable adventure to their Big Five safari, gorilla trekking in Uganda from Nairobi is an ideal option. For more information, contact Trek Africa Tours, your leading gorilla safari tour operator.
Visiting Kenya for the iconic Big Five and Great Migration is a once in a lifetime experience, but you can now take it to the next level by adding a gorilla trekking experience in Uganda. Many tourists visiting Kenya opt to cross over to Uganda for this unique adventure, as Uganda offers a safer and more affordable gorilla trekking experience. You can choose to fly from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport to Entebbe International Airport and then drive to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park or opt for a domestic flight directly to the park. Kenya Airways operates daily flights between the two airports, while Rwanda Air is another alternative. Upon arrival at Entebbe, Trek Africa Tours will arrange airport transfers to your accommodation. You can book a 3-day gorilla trek or extend your trip to include chimpanzee trekking with us.
