Discounted gorilla trekking permits in Uganda!

Time stands still when you are with the gorillas. . .


We just received news that the Uganda Wildlife Authority has discounted gorilla trekking permits for the months of November 2012, April 2013 and May 2013! The reduced price is $350 per person, per day, a savings of $150. Currently this promotional price applies only to new permits and excludes permits already purchased or deposited for these months. Permits must be paid-in-full at the time of booking and are non-refundable or transferable.

Trekking with mountain gorillas is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Lyndsay gives a glimpse of that experience in the following excerpt from her recent Uganda trip report:
The silverback was moving through the underbrush above us and we crossed a little stream (wet feet!) and continued to follow the female with the baby, a couple other individuals and the silverback through the forest – what a feeling! We are truly so lucky. From the forest, the gorillas skirted the park and then continued into the shambas and open farmland. Just as we spotted the gorillas, the sun broke through the clouds the colors were so rich and bright. We continued to watch the gorillas for an hour (maybe a little longer) as they interacted, lounged in the sun and climbed trees to eat fruit. Time stands still when you are with gorillas. 
This is a great opportunity to promote your Uganda safaris and the thrilling experience of gorilla trekking at a special discounted price.
