Luxury Gorilla trekking in Uganda
Gorilla Trekking in Uganda is done in two national parks is Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park and Mgahinga Gorilla National Park. Both National parks are located in South Western part of Uganda close to Rwanda. These can be accessed from Entebbe/Kampala and Kigali, Rwanda. Bwindi is a UNESCO designated World Heritage Site that provides habitat to Mountain Gorillas and Chimpanzees two great African Apes both of which are listed as endangered animals. Mgahinga Gorilla National Park provides habitat for the Mountain Gorillas and Golden Monkeys the two worlds’ rare and endangered apes. Gorilla tracking is the major activity at both National parks giving you an opportunity to spend one hour encountering the endangered apes.

Things to consider when planning a luxury gorilla trip to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park to visit the mountain gorillas
Exclusive Gorilla Trekking and Gorilla Permit booking
When planning a luxury gorilla trip to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park to visit the mountain gorillas, you should consider booking an exclusive gorilla trekking, this includes trekking a given gorilla family alone that is if you traveling as a couple, solo or family you will trek a given gorilla family privately. For you to be able to trek a given gorilla family privately you will be required to pay for all the 8 permits for that group so that you trek that family private. A Gorilla permit in Uganda costs USD700 per person per trek, this means you will be required to pay USD5600, booking this exclusive gorilla trek you will need to get permission from Uganda Wildlife Authority who will as well grant you the all the permits for that trek. Contact us here and we will help you secure the permission and the gorilla trekking permits to enable you trek a given group privately.
Consider doing Gorilla Habituation Experience than Gorilla Tracking.
When planning a luxury gorilla trip to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park to visit the mountain gorillas, you should consider going for Gorilla Habituation Experience than for the normal gorilla trek given the fact Gorilla Habituation gives you much more privacy were the trek is done in a group of only 4 people compared to the normal trek which is done in a group of 8 people. Gorilla Habituation gives you an opportunity to spend more time with the Mountain Gorillas in their natural habitat which is 4 hours compared to 1 hour encounter for the normal trek. Like for Gorilla tracking you as well have an opportunity to book an exclusive Gorilla Habituation Experience where the trek is done privately, you will need to pay for all the 4 gorilla habituation permits for you to be allowed by Uganda Wildlife Authorities to trek a given group alone.

Enough porters for Gorilla trekking
During Luxury and VIP Gorilla Trekking Tour in Uganda we advise you do your gorilla trek with enough porters, porters help by giving you a push and a pull during the trek, they also help in carrying you back pack all through the trek. For elders we advise you book the sedan chair services were you will be carried all through the hike in Bwindi forest to search for the mountain gorillas. This can be booked on the same day of your trek or in advance
Security provided by Uganda Tourism Police
Given the fact the VIP travelers are of a high class and some are multi-millionaires, these will need to be highly protected by the Uganda government security that is Uganda Tourism Police all through their tour in Uganda to ensure they are safe throughout their travel. Pinnacle Africa Safaris and Logistics will help organize this through the Ministry of Security and Internal affairs of Uganda.
