Book a gorilla permit to Uganda. If you are planning for a gorilla trekking adventure through Uganda, purchasing and acquiring a gorilla permit must be top of the list of the things you must have early enough before the gorilla adventure happens. This is the official government of Uganda document that allows you access to the only two gorilla destinations in the country that’s Bwindi impenetrable national game park and Mgahinga gorilla national game park.

Your one-hour or four hours encounter with the mountain gorilla in either Bwindi or Mgahinga gorilla national park can only be assured after purchasing the gorilla permits. At the gate of any of the two-gorilla destinations, a client is asked to present his or her passport and the gorilla permit before the briefing on how the trekking adventure will go on.

Where to get gorilla permits in Uganda.

Gorilla permits in Uganda for both destinations Bwindi and Mgahinga are only issued by the Uganda wildlife authority (UWA), the government agency in charge of all national parks in the country. A visitor can either contact Uwa by a direct call or simply by sending them a mail requesting for reservation of gorilla permits for a particular date. Upon confirmation of the availability of the gorilla trekking permit, a client will then make payments, and his or her gorilla trekking permit will be issued to him or her.

However, many visitors who have taken this path have ended up frustrated and left with only one easy option and that’s going through on-ground tour operators and agents for the purchase of their gorilla trekking permits a thing that has proven to be so easy and swift.

However, for gorilla habituation permits, you are given four full hours to spend with the gentle giants.

The permit gives you access to the gorilla trekking experience on the exact dates that were reserved. Missing the dates means that a particular gorilla permit becomes invalid.

Upon reaching the mountain gorillas, visitors are permitted to take pictures and videos to share with their loved ones back home.
