Uganda is renowned for having the largest population of mountain gorillas in the world with the recent 2021 census recording up to 1063 gorilla individuals. The endangered mountain gorillas can only be found in 3 countries namely Uganda, Rwanda & Congo with the top visited gorilla parks being Uganda’s Bwindi forest and Rwanda’s Volcano park. Revenue earned from gorilla trekking safaris is used to fund the national park and locals living close to the park.
What is a gorilla permit?
A gorilla permit is simply a document issued by the Uganda Wildlife Authority that allows you to track mountain gorillas in any of the gorilla parks in Uganda. The permit grants you access to the gorillas for only one trek and one hour once you are in their midst. A certificate of completion is offered at the end of the trek as proof of your successful gorilla trekking expedition. A Uganda gorilla permit costs US$ 700 per person and you can book it personally at the UWA offices in Kampala or use a travel agency or Uganda car rental company at a small or no charge.
