Luxury Gorilla Trekking Safaris
Seeing gorillas in Africa is one of the most unforgettable safari experiences you will ever have. Gorilla trekking is divided into three categories: luxury, moderate, and low-cost. These classes provide different experiences, with luxury gorilla trekking providing the best of all. Imagine trekking through the jungles of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, Virunga National Park, or Volcanoes National Park in search of gorillas, then returning to stay in one of the best accommodations. It’s a one-of-a-kind experience. Your experience should undoubtedly be spiced with comfort. These luxurious gorilla safari lodges are designed to provide clients with the best comfort and services possible.
These will only add to the enjoyment of your expedition. We have the experience to create a memorable gorilla holiday for you in Uganda, Rwanda, or Congo at a reasonable price, regardless of the class you travel in. An upmarket tour provides advantages such as using chartered and scheduled flights or 4×4 safari land cruisers for transportation and staying in up market safari lodges. The experience is relaxing and completely hassle-free.
Please keep in mind that each country has a distinct experience to offer. Because of the high cost of gorilla tracking permits, Rwanda appears to be a luxury gorilla trekking destination. A permit in Rwanda can cost up to $1500 per person, regardless of nationality or time of year. Discounts are not available unless you visit all three national parks in a single trip. Uganda is the most adaptable destination for gorilla trekking. Permits are $600 each, and the parks have equally nice lodging facilities where you can stay. Congo has the most affordable gorilla permits but only luxury safari lodges.
Where should you go for a luxury gorilla tour?
Consider Rwanda first on your list for a memorable up market gorilla safari experience. Bisate Eco Lodge or Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge should be your first choice for Rwanda safari lodges. These lodges are the most expensive so far in Volcanoes National Park, but they are also the most competitive. It is difficult to find availability, especially for close dates. Consider making advance reservations to secure your nights.
Uganda should be your backup plan. Consider Clouds Mountain Gorilla Lodge, Nkuringo Bwindi Gorilla Lodge, Mahogany Springs, Silverback Lodge, or Sanctuary Gorilla Forest Camp for your accommodations. These gorilla safari lodges are incredible. You will undoubtedly have a good time there.
Mikeno Lodge should be your top choice for Virunga, but reservations must be made several months in advance due to limited room availability.
If you book a luxury safari, do you get to see different gorillas?
The gorillas you see are identical. The only differences are in terms of lodging, transportation, and service. Permit prices are consistent across all classes.
