    Going to Uganda to see the Gorilla in their natural environment is number 1 on my bucket list. Your post is so detailled I did not even know there were also all these places where we could meet them.
    Definitely pinning your article for our future trip there 🙂

      Hey thanks. It is a truly a once in a lifetime experience. Mostly because I don’t want to have to pay the fee again. >;)

    This is really useful! Where did you stay and how much did you spend in total? I’m going in March

      We went to Bwindi Backpackers in Uganda and arranged for gorilla permits through them. We paid $600 USD for the permits, and for a double private room (and board) for two people was $80 USD per night. Staying two nights includes a free transfer from Kigali. They have camping/dorm options that are cheaper, but it is difficult to find food in the area, so the full board meal plan was important. Gorilla trekking is expensive, the only way to get it cheaper is going in April/May in Uganda the price goes down to $450 (low rainy season). Hope you enjoy your trip!
