Encounter Africa safaris organizes Luxury, Midrange and Budget gorilla habituation experience safaris to see mountain gorillas still under habituation in the southern part of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. Gorilla habituation experience which is a new initiative by Uganda Wildlife Authority provides an opportunity to those who book it to spend up to four hours with mountain gorillas under habituation. This four hour gorilla habituation experience currently takes place in the southern part of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park.
Our budget gorilla habituation experience safaris take into account the different prices of the permit, transport and accommodation. A gorilla habituation experience permit is a bit expensive and costs USD1500.00 for foreign non residents, USD1000.00 for Foreign residents in East Africa and UGx 750,000 for East African residents. When this is paid, you will be allowed to spend up to four hours with mountain gorillas. On paper, the price of gorilla habituation looks expensive but in the actual sense, it is cheaper when you compare it with someone who wants to trek gorillas using the normal gorilla trek permits. For example if you want to trek gorillas using the one hour gorilla trek of 600, you will need up to USD2400 for the four permits and this has to be done in four days. By booking a gorilla habituation experience permit you stand to save up to USD900. When planning your budget gorilla habituation experience safari, you need to look at reducing the costs of accommodation and transport since the price of gorilla habituation permit is constant.
