Uganda gorilla trekking safari - fly-in

The 3 Day Uganda Gorilla Trekking Tour is a luxury jungle safari that is designed purely for those travellers not willing to take the 8+ hours drive from Entebbe International Airport to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park where the gorilla trekking activity is done. Uganda has only one international airport located on average 5 hours away from most tourist attractions, the fly-in Uganda gorilla trekking safari would be a perfect choice if you have a happy vacation wallet.

Uganda gorilla trekking is one of the most sought after Uganda safari activity in Africa and that’s because the experience of spending 60 minutes in presence of a giant beast is an unmatched experience. With the help of gorilla trekking guides/trackers, you’ll be guided through the jungle to an elevation altitude of 1,160m – 2,607m above sea level, where you’ll find a habituated mountain gorilla family. When you find them, you’ll be allowed only 60 minutes with these creatures and make sure you follow the guidelines and maximize your time with them. These gorillas have been a habituated by experts to allow you spend time with them, so there’s no immediate danger with them – besides, you’ll have protection with you.

Gorilla Permits

Gorilla trekking permits are issued by UWA at US $600 per person per trek. Without the gorilla permit, you’ll not be allowed to trek these gentle giants.

In this gorilla trekking safari package we acquire the permit on your behalf at no cost because we know that acquiring one can be so hectic to the foreigner especially during peak season.

When to go gorilla trekking?

Although it’s regarded as a year-round activity, the best time to visit Uganda for gorilla trekking is during the country’s two dry seasons: January and February and from June to September. These are the typical peak seasons for Uganda Safaris.
