The dry season between the months of May, June, July, August, September, early October, December, and January is, however, the best time to visit Gorillas when forest grounds are less slippery and not muddy. The low season of February, March, April, and November has its own advantages where some accommodation facilities normally give discounted room rates during the low season hence the best time to travel for budget travelers. However, mountain Gorillas can be visited at any time of the year.
Gorilla permit prices vary from country to country. Rwanda Gorilla permits cost USD1500 per person per trek and Uganda Gorilla permit cost USD700 for foreign non-residents, USD700 for foreign residents and UGX250,000 for East African residents per person per trek as of now.
Gorilla permit booking should be at least 3-4 months in advance. The high demand for Gorilla permits require travelers to book as early as possible and secure them in time. Last time bookings stand limited chances of accessing Uganda Gorilla permits because of the low price compared to that of Rwanda.
The age limit is fifteen (15) years in all Gorilla trekking destinations. Each traveler below the age of fifteen (15) years is not allowed to trek the mountain Gorillas despite his/her physical appearance and capabilities. Age limit is put to ensure safety of travelers and the mountain Gorillas in the jungle. However, if a child is almost making 15 years, his/her parent can sign an agreement as fully responsible for anything that may happen to the child during the trekking time. The letter is written and signed by the parent and then submitted to the Uganda Wildlife Authority or Rwanda Development Board for confirmation.Read more about gorilla tracking age limit

You can trek mountain Gorillas in Bwindi National Park of Uganda from Kigali-Rwanda. Now days, Rwanda Uganda Gorilla safaris are well-done helping travelers in Rwanda to cross and trek Gorillas in Uganda. Here you can fly into Kigali International Airport and drive for 4-5 hours to Bwindi Forest or Mgahinga Gorilla National Parks through Gatuna or Cyanika border. This makes the drive shorter compared to that of 8-9 hours from Entebbe or Kampala in Uganda. Contact Great Adventure Safaris to book Gorilla safaris Uganda and more activities in Uganda and Rwanda
