Comparing Budget Gorilla Trekking in Uganda, Rwanda and Congo
The Budget Gorilla Trekking Uganda Experience is currently the most desirable. In Bwindi Impenetrable National Park there are various cheap accommodation facilities that you can have a choice. Mid-range lodges also do gladly offer their services to budget trekkers/tourists. Gorilla permits cost $600 (Uganda), $1500(Rwanda) and $450 for DRC, of which Uganda’s Gorilla Permit is the most and therefore affordable gorilla experiences are obviously gotten from Uganda. Over half of the remaining population of mountain gorillas in the world resides in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park.
Rwanda is characterized with nothing like Budget Gorilla Trekking but described with Luxury Gorilla Trekking Destination when its Gorilla Permits got doubled in 2017 and now costs $1500(this amount can enable you book a 3 Day Gorilla trek in Uganda even having a balance for pocket change. In order for you to see mountain Gorillas in Rwanda you have got to lower/cut down your Accommodation and transport costs, whereas as for Congo you save on paying the Gorilla permit $450 and spend highly on accommodation because they only have Top Notch Safari lodges
What to expect from a cheap gorilla trekking safari?
However, going cheap in most instances doesn’t imply you are going to have the worst experience, No, actually most trekkers/tourists mis-interpret and get it wrong, and yet not all tour operators/companies are able to organise comfortable experiences for you. when you do your booking, a budget gorilla Safari/tour with Monumental Expeditions, we definitely offer you mid-range accommodation facilities, all meals inclusive and most of our Budget Gorilla Safari Trekkers stay/ sleep in Ichumbi Gorilla Lodge.
