    Best time to go

    The best wildlife viewing months in Uganda are during the Dry seasons from June to August and December to February.

    Primate walks in the forest are a big part of any safari in Rwanda. The habitat of rainforests is, by default, very wet, and one can’t avoid rain completely.

    Uganda Gorilla Permits costs

    Uganda gorilla permits cost $600 and Rwanda gorilla permits cost $1500. These have to be acquired months before your trip to be assured of viewing the mountain gorillas. Read more about Gorilla tracking permits
