Gorilla Trek Safari Prices
Gorilla trekking is one of the African safaris whose price is quoted quite high but worth paying. Many people struggle to at least pay to book a gorilla permit in advance because of the high completion for the first come first serve permits. Some opt for an exclusively tailor made gorilla trekking tour or a scheduled safari depending on their pocket worth. Gorilla safaris in Uganda or Rwanda normally take 3 days, 7 days up to about 21 days depending on the places one desire to visit. But at least 3 days gorilla tour in Bwindi or Rwanda is the minimum number of day. The cost of a gorilla safari depends on the number of days and the number of people on the gorilla holiday
Majority travellers wish to know the price of a gorilla safari either in Uganda or Rwanda.
Single travellers, normally pay for all that is included in the gorilla package but as more people join a safari, they tend to share the costs therefore reducing on the price of the safari
The most important and key item is the gorilla permit which apparently costs $ 700 in Uganda and Rwanda at $ 1500. These are highly competed for because of there scarcity availabity. Only 8 gorilla tracking permits are sold each day per gorilla family so chances of missing a permit are high if you do not book in advance of travel.
The variables for the gorilla safari package include:
A part from the gorilla permit the 4×4 wheel vehicle must be hired for your safari because to travel to Bwindi or volcanoes national park, you need to be transported.
The guide/driver is also very important because he or she has more information about enroute and on ground attractions
Fuel for the entire journey
Accommodation where you hope to spend the nights must be booked in advance because atleast you need to spend 2 nights in Bwindi that is to say the arrival night and the actual gorilla tracking day because you are not sure of return time after the gorilla trek. This must be booked in the location close to the gorilla family you are trekking to avoid long drives
Optional items include:
A porter is hired to give you extra support and carry your gears while you trek. Porters are local people who earn their daily income from such work and others use money accrued for paying school fees.
Tipping. This is a token of appreciation for the good service rendered to you during your safari. This depends on one’s feeling and has no specific amount
Although this is a personal choice, it’s very good to have travel insurance in case anything may happen to you while on your Uganda safari. Inquire from your insurance company about the extent to which they can support you while on your safari. For those that wish to have self-drive, you must ask the car hire company whether they have third party insurance to cover up for anything unforeseen.
