Gorilla Thriller. Best value Gorilla trekking to be had in Uganda.

June 28, 2017 Travel Deals No Comments Email Email

For a truly sublime wilderness escape, it is hard to surpass Uganda, the undiscovered pearl of Africa. A lush landscape of deep lakes, glacial alpine mountains, wide-open savannah and dense rainforests, the country boasts wildlife not found anywhere else, making a safari here an unforgettable one.

But Uganda is perhaps best known for its concentration of primates, including its most celebrated residents – half the world’s remaining mountain gorilla population. And one of the best places to see them is Sanctuary Gorilla Forest Camp located in the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, a UNESCO World Heritage Site in the country’s southwest.

Tucked away on a on a flat ridge deep within the Forest, this exclusive luxury camp comprises just eight tents, and is one of the most remote and atmospheric in Africa. Frequently visited by gorilla families due to its unique location, it is the perfect base for a once in a lifetime encounter with mountain gorillas.

Of course Uganda is one of several countries where it is still possible to observe gorillas in the wild. But the recent move by Rwandan authorities to implement a significant price hike for compulsory gorilla trekking permits from US$750 to US $1,500 per person for all visitors earlier this year has added significantly to it’s appeal, with Ugandan permits considerably more affordable at just US$600 per person.
