What is the cheapest way to see gorillas in Uganda?

Cheapest way to see gorillas in Uganda? Interested in seeing the endangered mountain gorillas in Uganda in the cheapest way possible, book a gorilla trekking safari in the low season with a budget accommodation to properly minimize the costs.  A cheap gorilla trekking safari will bring you to Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo in East and Central Africa since their gorilla permits are relatively cheaper compared to that of RwandaIn Uganda, how cheap a gorilla trekking safari is can not only be determined by the price of the gorilla permit but also other factors such as the accommodation rates, transportation costs, and number of days of the safari among others. A gorilla permit in Uganda goes for 800 USD which is cheaper than its neighboring country Rwanda where it goes for 1500 USD per person thus making a gorilla trekking safari to Uganda cheaper already. A budget traveler interested in a budget gorilla trekking expedition should consider taking up a few of these tips.

The cheapest way to see gorillas in Africa, Uganda inclusive, is by taking a gorilla trekking safari during the wet season. Also known as the low season, this season is characterized by constant rains and fewer travelers. It runs from October to November and from April to May.

Unlike the dry season, during this time the numbers are scarce hence it is possible to get a discounted gorilla permit to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park or Maghinga Gorilla National Park. Since the numbers are fewer, most of the hotels and lodges also offer discounted accommodation to attract customers therefore ensure to book cheap lodges in 1 of the 4 sectors of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park which are Rushaga, Ruhija, Buhoma, and Nkuringo or in Mgahinga National Park since all these places have accommodation in budget, mid-range and luxury.

After getting a discounted gorilla permit and budget accommodation, consider taking short gorilla safaris such as a 3 days Uganda gorilla trekking safari or a 4 days Uganda gorilla expedition as they are cheaper, and opt for road safaris other than fly-in safaris since they are cheaper and thus minimized costs.
