We specialize in organizing Luxury and budget Uganda Gorilla Tours to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and Mgahinga National Park. We are capable of combining our budget Uganda Gorilla tours with other activities such as game viewing, cultural and community interactions, nature walks among others. Uganda alone has over 400 mountain gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and we help provide timely and accurate information about available tours to see gorillas.

We organize, book and purchase gorilla permits for your Uganda Gorilla Tours on behalf of all our clients and International travel Agents. Gorilla permits are sold by Uganda Wildlife Authority in Kampala and cost USD600 per permit. If you require an all inclusive Uganda gorilla tour, we will not charge anything as we will be incharge of organizing your transport, accommodation, guides as well as your gorilla permit. If you want to book gorilla permits only, we will charge a small administrative fee to do that for you.


These gorilla tour packages are some of the most requested ones. Encounter Africa can customise any one of them to suite your preferences.
