Where is the Best Place For Gorilla Tours

Where is the best place for gorilla tours in Africa is one of the common questions asked by those who intend to visit the endangered gorillas. Well, there is no clear conclusion on which place is best for gorilla trekking but rather the experience varies from one person to another.Lets go Tours Rwanda brings you details on all places where these endangered gorillas live for you to choose which destination you like. For those who want to compare gorilla trekking experiences, its advisable to visit both gorilla destinations to draw a right conclusion. Gorilla Parks in Africa include:

Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park
Located in South Western Uganda, Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park is a popular gorilla safari destination. With over 17 gorilla families habituated for trekking, Bwindi Forest is undeniably the number one place to see gorillas. Over 600 (half of the world’s total population) mountain gorillas dwell in this impenetrable forest. The high number of gorilla families guarantee availability of gorilla permits compared to other gorilla national parks. However, gorillas in Bwindi Forest are known to live in high altitude areas which make it strenuous to reach them. Bwindi is therefore fit for the young and energetic travelers.  The Park is divided into for sectors which are Buhoma in the north, Ruhija in the east, Rushaga and Nkuringo in the south. Besides trekking, Bwindi Forest also offers experimental gorilla habituation experience in which wild gorillas are trained to get familiar to people

Volcanoes National Park

This park is located in northwestern Rwanda and is home to over 400 mountain gorillas. Volcanoes National Park offers luxury gorilla safaris at $1500 per gorilla permit but its worth it!  The park has 10 gorilla families habituated and open for travelers to trek. Lets Go Tours Rwanda is your best guide to Rwanda offering tailor made gorilla safaris and other related wildlife experiences. The  gorilla addons in Volcanoes Park include golden monkey trekking, visiting the twin lakes, musanze caves and Dian Fossey grave hike which together makes a complete Rwanda safari package

Virunga National Park

Virunga is yet another gorilla park to visit for this lifetime experience. Located in Eastern Congo, Virunga National Park is home to 8 gorilla families which guarantee availability of 64 gorilla permits each day. Its the least visited gorilla park due to the insecurities and civil conflicts that have persisted in the park.  Virunga is also home to the active Nyiragongo and Nyamuragira Volcanoes  hence the center for volcano climbing in East Africa

Mgahinga Gorilla National Park

Visit Mgahinga Gorilla National Park  to trek Nyakagyezi, the one and only gorilla family in this Park. Located in south western Uganda, Mgahinga is the smallest park in the Pearl of Africa endowed with numerous interesting features. The Park is home to the endangered golden monkeys and other colobus monkeys.  Mgahinga also harbors three extinct volcanoes which are Mt Gahinga, Mt Sabinyo and Mt Muhabura.  Also, the batwa cultural trail in this park offers you chance to learn and experience the traditions, norms and customs of these indigenous forest people

NOTE: Gorilla permits in Uganda costs $700 each, $1500 in Rwanda and $450 in the Democratic Republic of Congo. A gorilla habituation experience permit in  Bwindi Forest costs $1500 allowing you to spend four hours with the wild gorillas.
