Gorilla Trekking Rwanda VS Congo Vs Uganda

There is always a debate about the best gorilla trekking experiences in Africa among the mountain gorilla destinations of Uganda, Rwanda and Dr Congo. However, there is no doubt that mountain gorillas are found in the Virunga conservation area (Volcanoes national park in Rwanda, Mgahinga gorilla National park in Uganda and Virunga national park in Dr Congo) that is shared amongst the three countries as well as the mighty Bwindi Impenetrable forest national park in Uganda, commonly known for being a home to almost a half of the world mountain gorilla population.

Therefore, deciding on where to go for gorilla trekking experiences depends on number of factors such as price of the gorilla permit, accommodation, stability and supporting logistics. Gorilla trekking in Rwanda is considered to be easier because the gorillas are usually seen after just a few hours of trekking however the altitude is higher, therefore trekkers have to be fit considering that volcanoes is a mountainous park but with open forest vegetation to allow better gorilla viewing and photography.

Congo gorilla trekking is done from Virunga National Park. Virunga park is the oldest game reserve in Africa with unmatched biodiversity. However, the park is heavily affected by insecurities and political instabilities which affect steady tourism operations and activities. Gorilla trekking in Dr Congo is usually combined with Nyiragongo mountain hiking to explore an active volcano and the world’s largest lava lake. Gorilla safaris and tours in Dr Congo are very rewarding however; safety and security is a big concern and activities are usually on and off, this makes planning difficult for travelers.

Gorilla trekking in Mgahing agorilla National Park Ugandan is done to track the only Nyakagezi habituated gorilla family hence attracting fewer visitors due to limited daily permit availability. Therefore, most gorilla trekking safaris in Uganda are done from Bwindi Impenetrable Forest national park with 17 habituated gorilla families. There are no specific trails in the Bwindi due to dense tropical vegetation cover this affects thorough movement through the jungle while on search for mountain gorillas. The landscape is also misty and slippery due to almost daily mist and forest droplets in the forest. Visitors are advised to put on trekking boots and rain coat during their adventure in Bwindi.

Logistically, Rwanda is a clean and safe country with a number of high-end accommodation properties and good road network to major tourist destinations hence targeting luxury tourists. Uganda is also a safe destination with a number of properties ranging from budget, mid-range and luxury lodges and camps. Highways in Uganda as well done and maintained to enhance efficient and effective transfers.

Gorilla trekking in Congo is heavily affected by instabilities and limited accommodation properties. We advise tourists looking for gorilla tracking to stay in Gisenyi before and after their tracking experiences

A gorilla permit costs $1,500 in Rwanda, $700 in Uganda and $400 for Dr Congo.

Mountain gorilla trekking is an incredible life changing experience and we call upon everyone to contribute towards the survival of mountain gorillas in Africa!

All countries have pleasant temperatures however most holiday makers tend to visit Africa from June to mid-October and from December to mid-March. Those are considered peak seasons in Uganda, Rwanda and Dr Congo and prices tend to hick a bit for accommodation due to high demand in most sectors. However, if you are a price sensitive traveler, we advise you to travel during the low season of Late march to May and November due to crazy discounts offered by different chain product suppliers. The region experiences heavy down shower in April &May and October to November, this at times affect gorilla trekking and wildlife safaris in Uganda, Rwanda and Dr Congo but it doesn’t mean that you won’t be able to enjoy your adventure.
