Mountain gorilla conservation today: First we appreciate the fact that group visits to the mountain gorilla lands can be expensive however going solo is more expensive, with a mountain gorilla permit costing 600 $ in Uganda during the peak season and 450$ in the so called low season. Rwanda the permit costs 1500 $ for both season entries and D.R.Congo issues permits at 400 $.
The fees are meant strictly for the conservation of these animals which involves habitat maintenance for both lives of the surrounding community and the gentle giants inside their home ranges, mountain gorillas exist in remote areas not known for their tourists infrastructure making the logistics to trek to the mountain gorillas challenging as an activity on its own.
Tour groups interested in mountain gorilla tracking pay permit fees before entry to conservation areas including expert guide to lead them inside the forest and making sure you enjoy your experience. Like most African game activities the one hour allowed to interact with these gentle giants inside their natural habitats is quite worth it .
