Gorilla permits in the Democratic Republic of Congo costs USD450 per person per trek which is the cheapest Gorilla tracking offer compared to the 2 other Gorilla destinations available.

Apart from the price of the Gorilla permit at USD450 you need to incur and extra cost on the Congo visa which costs USD100. Extra costs to this tour include paying the Arrival visa in Rwanda and return visa back to Rwanda, this price comes back to the price of the Uganda Gorilla permit hence a memorable adventure budget Silverback Gorilla tracking safari for once in a life time with Great Adventure Safaris.
