Gorilla tracking is one the major highlights for travelers visiting Uganda and Rwanda. In Rwanda, gorillas are found in the Volcanoes National Park whereas Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and Mgahinga Gorilla National Park are home to the more than 300 mountain gorillas in Uganda.
The year 2018 is projected to be a busy year for gorilla tourism both in Uganda and Rwanda. In May 2017, Rwanda raised the gorilla tracking permit from $750 to $1500 for both domestic and foreign tourists. Conversely, gorilla trekking permits are still caped at $600 per traveler in Uganda. For this reason, gorilla permits in Uganda are projected to be in high demand since some tourists are likely to track gorillas in Uganda to take advantage of the lower rate.

Bamboo Ecotours, based off Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is an expert in reserving gorilla trekking permits in a timely manner.
