Where to go gorilla trekking in Rwanda from Italy
Our gorilla trekking tours take place in Uganda and Rwanda. The African mountain gorillas are found in the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest of Uganda and the Virunga Mountains Region, spanning Rwanda, Uganda, and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Gorilla trekking in Rwanda happens in Volcanoes National Park, set in the Virunga Mountains, bordering on Virunga National Park in the DRC and Mgahinga Gorilla National Park in southwestern Uganda.
Most of our gorilla trekking safaris go to Bwindi National Park which offers the best value-for-money gorilla trekking experience. We also feature gorilla trekking tours to Rwanda but the gorilla trekking permits are more affordable in Uganda which makes it a better budget option. Some of our gorilla trekking tours visit both Uganda and Rwanda enabling you to experience the best of both destinations at a reasonable price. We currently do not, unfortunately, visit Virunga National Park in the DRC due to civil unrest and political instability in the country.
Please note that gorilla trekking tour prices do not include the Gorilla Trekking Permit.
How much do Gorilla Trekking Permits Cost?
Gorilla Permit fees cost US$ 1,500 in Rwanda and US$ 600 in Uganda.
