Budget Gorilla Trekking Safaris in Uganda and Rwanda

Budget Uganda Gorilla Safaris from as Low as USD $950
Discover the best Budget Uganda Gorilla Safaris to Bwindi and Mgahinga that are perfect for travelers who want to do Gorilla Trekking Uganda at a cheaper cost. Budget Gorilla safaris are characterized by simple or basic safari lodges, minimal number of days and the cheaper safari vehicles for transfering.

Uganda offers a great range of budget safari tours. It is increasingly being recognized as one of Africa’s most underrated but rewarding wildlife destinations. Tracking mountain gorillas is a must-do bucket-list wildlife encounter, and Uganda is one of only three countries home to these charismatic apes (the other two being Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo). And while mountain gorillas have put Uganda on the travel map, it also offers the chance to see the Big Five (lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant and rhino) in some of Africa’s most uncrowded savannah reserves.

Uganda is an ideal Budget Gorilla Safari destination based on her relatively priced gorilla permits ($700) and variety of accommodation facilities within and outside the 2 gorilla parks; Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and Mgahinga Gorilla National Park.

Mountain gorillas’ natural habitats are far from Uganda’s only International Airport and the capital, Kampala. The distance from Kampala to Bwindi is estimated at 493 km or 8 hours drive time. The road trip alone can make the Uganda gorilla safari more costly. This is when we come in with our optimized means to cut the costs.

When planning your Budget Uganda Gorilla Safaris, always remember the best time to trek gorillas. It should be noted that, the best time to do gorilla trekking is during the 2 dry season between June to early September and December to February. These 2 seasons are considered high season as many tourists prefer trekking mountain gorillas when it is dry.

Tip for budget travelers, it is during the low season when lodges give out tremendous discounts hence reducing on the cost of the tour package. During our Budget Uganda Gorilla Safaris of the low season (rainy season), we use 4×4 safari vehicles to beat the wet muddy roads and we also advise our clients to pack rain gears for a smooth gorilla safari.

5 Tips for a Successful Budget Gorilla Safari
What to Consider When Booking Budget Uganda Gorilla Safaris

The Accommodation Type – The choice of Safari Lodge: Uganda offer a range of accommodations from the unrated to 5-star hotels and lodges. When choosing lodges for a Budget Uganda Gorilla Safari, we always opt for the cheaply priced but comfortable lodges/hotels.
The Transportation Mode: There are flights organized from Entebbe to Bwindi but, that is for the excluded. For our budget travelers, we travel in basic private safari vehicles that are simple but well maintained to avoid breakdowns while on trip.
The Start and End Point: As earlier highlighted, Bwindi and Mgahinga are highly isolated from Kampala and Entebbe airport. So, in order to minimize the cost of transportation, we advise our international guests to fly in through Kigali airport Rwanda. The distance from Kigali to Bwindi is relatively short compared to that of Kampala to Bwindi. Kigali city is then preferred as our start/end point on short Budget Uganda Gorilla Safaris.
The Group Size: Being a sole traveler has advantages but, when it comes to costs, you foot all the bills on your own. When you travel in a group, you tend to reduce costs as you will be sharing costs with your travelling companion hence spending less. See Uganda Group Tours for inspiration and more information.
The Number of Days: However much you may need to save, you can never spend less on a longer Gorilla Safari than the one on a short Gorilla Safari. The more you stay on a trip, the more you spend yet the main tourist activity, Gorilla Trekking can easily be done in 2 or 3 days.
