The policy is that you obtain a gorilla permit several months in advance. We always advise at least 5 months in advance or prior to your safari. While booking a gorilla tour, always pay your gorilla permit fee in advance to enable us acquire it for you.
Gorilla trekking is guaranteed when you acquire a permit. Uganda gorilla permits are very competitive and scarce most especially during peak seasons of June, July, August, September, December and February. More so the Uganda gorilla permits are cheaper compared to those in Rwanda. Sometimes gorilla tracking permits get sold out four months in advance so any traveller needs to book a gorilla permits 3-4 month in advance. Kindly follow our gorilla permit booking information for details.
