Causes Of Gorilla Permit Shortage In Bwindi And Mgahinga National Parks Uganda

Causes of gorilla permit Shortage in Bwindi and Mgahinga National Parks Uganda- Recently most of the travelers to  Uganda have cried of too many gorilla permit shortages and this is becoming a serious challenge to both the tour operators and the tourists themselves who are interested in coming to Uganda to see the mountain gorillas in Bwindi and Mgahinga National Parks.  There are quite several reasons why there is a problem of permit shortage yet Uganda has got a lot of habituated gorilla families to accommodate ever-increasing tourists to visit these National Parks.

Affordable gorilla permit prices for Uganda gorilla permits.

One of the major causes of gorilla permit shortage in Bwindi and Mgahinga national parks Uganda is that Uganda’s gorilla permits are cheap as compared to other gorilla permit prices of other countries such as Rwanda.  In Uganda, you will need only USD700 to secure and buy a gorilla trekking permit for foreign nonresidents, then USD600 for foreign residents, and shillings 250000 for east African Citizens.

This price of the gorilla permit makes Uganda the affordable destination for gorilla trekking apart from the Democratic Republic of Congo. Because of the increase of the gorilla trekking permit prices of Rwanda from USD750 to USD1500, most of the tourists have resorted to booking gorilla safaris or tours to Uganda and the fact Uganda is the cheap with maximum security as compared to the Democratic Republic of Congo

The influx of tourists to Uganda has resulted in a shortage of gorilla permits because most of the people and tour operators rush to book gorilla permits in advance. Most of the tour operators even those who use to book gorilla trekking permits in Rwanda, now have resorted to booking Uganda gorilla permits hence making competition for Uganda permits so stiff.

The cause of gorilla trekking permit shortage in Uganda is also caused due to the seasonality aspect of the tourism in Uganda. Tourists prefer moving to Uganda to see gorillas during the dry season in June, July, August, early September, then December to February. In these months, most of the visitors and the tour operators book gorilla permits in advance resulting from the increased shortage of gorilla trekking permits in Uganda.
