Combined gorilla safaris across Uganda, Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo are a great deal for greater gorilla trekking comparisons in the world. It’s very possible to trek different gorilla families in different countries at different intervals on a same trip. A three times gorilla safari is an experience of its own kind. You get to meet different gorilla families in different destinations. Doing combined gorilla tours require you to buy different gorilla permits in each country. Each country has a different charge for its gorilla permit. Fortunately, a single East African Visa allows you to cross and move within Uganda, Rwanda, with an exception of Congo whose visa costs only 50$.

Uganda is a prime gorilla safari destination in Africa. The Pearl of Africa is home to the highest number of mountain gorillas sheltering half of the world’s total population. Gorillas in Uganda live in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and Mgahinga Gorilla National Parks both located in southwestern Uganda. While on your combined gorilla tour, you can do your first gorilla trek in Bwindi /Mgahinga Forests after which you cross over to the neighboring Rwanda.  Uganda gorilla permits cost $700 for foreign non-residents, $600 for foreign residents and UGX 250,000 for Uganda and East African citizens. All bookings for Uganda gorilla safaris are done through Uganda Wildlife Authority directly, or via any registered trusted travel operator.
