How to Plan Luxury Uganda Gorilla Safari?
How to Book Luxury Gorilla trekking Permits in Uganda: To book your gorilla permits independently, you can do so through the below channel.
To buy your Uganda trekking Gorilla Permit, you need to do this via the Ugandan Wildlife Authority (UWA) either in person at the office in Kampala-Uganda, via email or telephone (So Kabira Safaris & Tours shall always be the office in Kampala – Uganda to offer you this Service). Once they confirm your permit, you then make a bank transfer to the UWA.
In Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, there are 4 locations, Buhoma, Ruhija, Rushaga and Nkuringo, so just be aware that it is best to book your permit close to where you will stay (as it’s quite far and expensive to travel between locations, especially as the treks start at 8am).
They only issue permits from the Kampala office, so if booking yourself, you will need to pick up your permits in Kampala. This is fine unless you were planning on flying into Kigali as this would mean a very long trip out of your way, so you’re best flying into Entebbe and/or passing through Kampala overland.
If booking via a Local Tour company or on a tour, this isn’t an issue as they will pick up your permits for you. – Kabira Safaris & Tours!
