  • What is the price for Uganda Gorilla trekking?Mountain gorillas are an endangered species, therefore, the price to see them can cost anywhere from US $600 to US $13K depending on your time of travel, accommodation and length of stay. Although the price is pretty hefty, the experience of gazing into the eyes of these gentle giants is priceless.
  • Is gorilla trekking worth the money? Seeing creatures so similar to ourselves play in the thicket, dangle from branches, munch on leaves, protect their young and banging their chest is a hard-to-beat experience. Don't let the price deter you from trekking for these primates, you won’t find an experience quite like this back home.
  • When is gorilla trekking season in Uganda? The drier months between December and February, and from June to September offer the best conditions for trekking with little to no rainfall. Of course, it's more expensive as it's peak season, but it means you can capture better photos and generally have a more enjoyable experience!
  • How to get a gorilla permit for Uganda? You need a gorilla permit from the national parks in order to trek gorillas. Many of the Uganda gorilla trekking providers on TourRadar will give you permit booking information, or in some cases can even book your permit for you. Due to the high demands, we recommend that you apply for a permit at least 6 months before your trekking date to avoid last-minute disappointments. Read more on the best places for gorilla trekking.
