Experiencing the Gorilla Safari Sticker Shock -We help you get over it
Gorilla Trekking costs too Much – What to do about it
Gorilla Safari Sticker Shock – “Gorilla Trekking costs too Much.” Cost too Much – Compared to what? Mountain Gorilla Trekking is unique, it will be the most expensive tourist activity you will do in Africa, exclusively if you decide to engage in so in Rwanda, or engage in the extensive Gorilla Habituation Experience in Uganda.
If you think that Gorilla Trekking rates/costs too Much, you might take it further and ask is Gorilla Trekking really worth it? Is the extensive Gorilla Habituation Experience really worth it? Read on and you might come to another conclusion.
The Price of a Gorilla Trekking Tour/Safari
1) “Gorilla Trekking is Too expensive – compared to what
Gorilla Trekking rates too Much – Compared to what? That is the problem. You can easily relate a wildlife Tour anywhere in Africa, but Trekking the mountain Gorillas (Gentle Giants) of the Forest is only done in 3 Countries consecutively, Rwanda that is promoting itself as a lavish Terminus/Destination and rates, involving the permit rates, the Democratic Republic where you are dealing with Security Risk Factors and where your Transfer Insurance becomes valueless & annulled, lastly there is Uganda, harmless and protected and where permit rates are $900 less than in Rwanda.
You cannot compare a Mountain Gorilla Trek to any other transfer involvement. Add to that, that you cannot spot gentle giants (Mountain Gorillas) in any zoo around the world.
2) “When’s the last time you bought something based on price alone?’
Mountain Gorilla Trekking is not on Budget/ cheap. There are some Ugandan Safari Companies that provide Cheap Gorilla Trekking Tours, all we can say in reply. “Remember the Yugo.” The inexpensive car made in the world during its time.” It contained a lot of issues/ problems. Cheap Tours imply less, unprotected, lacking worth/value. When you shop for a Gorilla Tour you should look at the kind of lodge you are going to use, what is presented, full board or bed and breakfast only, does the charge involve permit cost.
A Gorilla Trekking is on many a “Bucket List” – it is an involvement and that alone supplement worth/value when shopping around look at the total worth/value of the Safari Package, you cannot trek gentle giants (Gorillas) for 6 hrs while living in a lodge on a Bed and Breakfast Basis, your concentration should be on the primates and not on an unfilled Stomach. The relief of a good lodge, using a conversant, skilled safari operator, having a good trek/safari guide is part of the overall involvement and not something you get if your trekking choice is reliant on rate/price alone.
3) “Will the price of a Gorilla Safari keep you from the once in a Lifetime Experience – Gorilla Trekking?”
Gorilla Trekking or the extensive Gorilla Habituation Experience has been named “Life Changing” or the “the Icing on the Cake of their Safari.” Statements like that, make the Trekking involvement invaluable. A few years ago a 94-year Italian woman was supported into Bwindi Impenetrable National Park/ Forest on a Stretcher supported by a rotating team of porters for her time with the Gentle giants (Mountain Gorillas). An involvement not imitated anywhere else in the world. Gentle giants/Mountain Gorillas are not located in any zoo in the world, only in Uganda, Rwanda & the DRC.
Mountain Gorilla Trekking is an investment in You
Gorilla Trekking involvement is not like any other activity, just another Game Drive, a walk in the Bush, it is instead an asset/venture in yourself. The rate of a Trekking Tour in part pays for the Preservation of the endangered Primates, a venture in the local society and prevents them from poaching in the Forest. Poaching most often is the need/desire to get/hunt for bush meat and Gorillas get trapped. Mostly it is about you being in the presence of the mountain gorillas (Gentle Giants) of the Forest. Prepare ahead for the Tour by one year and save up for it. Use our suitable lay away platform, or make the down payment for permits and the balance 30 days prior the Trek/Quest/Tour.
Gorilla Trekking Tours Charges/rates Too Much – is something in part reliant on Postulation/Assumption. You do not know the true Rate/Cost and often Travelers Assume that Africa is cheap, sorry, there is nothing Cheap about Gorilla Trekking.
