The affordable gorilla trekking safari packages above are customized to be as cost sensitive as possible. You can go ahead and choose one as you plan for your next safari.

Comparing Budget Gorilla Trekking in Uganda, Rwanda and Congo
The budget gorilla trekking Uganda experience is apparently the best. Bwindi Forest National Park has so many cheap accommodation facilities that you can choose from. A few standard mid-range lodges are also willing to offer their services to budget clients. A gorilla permit costs only $600 in Uganda. This is $900 less than the Rwanda permits fee and $150 higher than Congo’s. The best affordable gorilla experiences are definitely got from Uganda. Bwindi harbors over half the remaining population of mountain gorillas in the world.
There is nothing like budget gorilla trekking in Rwanda. Rwanda officially became a luxury gorilla trekking destination when they doubled their gorilla trekking permits fees in 2017. A permit in Rwanda now costs $1500, an amount that can book you a three-day comfortable gorilla trek in Uganda and even leave you with pocket change. If you feel you must really see Rwanda gorillas, you can still cut down on accommodation and transportation costs.
The situation in Congo is a 50/50. You save on gorilla permits by paying only $450 but spend more on accommodation since they have only top notch safari lodges.
What to expect from a cheap gorilla trekking safari
Going cheap doesn’t mean you are bound for a horrible experience. Most people mis-understand this and not all tour operators are able to arrange comfortable experiences for you. Just like mentioned earlier, when you book a budget gorilla tour with us, we offer you mid-range accommodation facilities with all meals included. Most of our budget gorilla safari clients sleep in Ichumbi Gorilla Lodge (http://ichumbigorillalodge.com/our-cottages). Feel free to check out their facilities.
