How to make a Uganda safari booking
When it comes to booking especially a gorilla trekking safari in Uganda, the steps are really costly in terms of expense, time to travelers who book directly. Any traveler who would love to experience gorilla trekking needs a gorilla trekking permit to engage in the activity. This is a document issued to all travelers who are to enjoy gorilla trekking in gorilla parks of the country such as Mgahinga forest and Bwindi Impenetrable National Park.
It should be noted that gorilla trekking is best enjoyed in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park with four sectors that harbor 17 gorilla families in the park. Interestingly, the Uganda Wildlife Authority issues out permits for all the sectors and the highest number of people allowed per gorilla family per day is 8 and the permit is only used once
All the travelers who delight in this wonderful activity are always granted only one hour to spend with the gorillas after locating them. On the side of gorilla habituation experience, it is different because you are given 4 hours to be with the gorilla family
It is very crucial to note that you are advised to do booking for a gorilla safari 6 months before your date of travel, this helps you get chance to trek in the greatest gorilla trekking sector Buhoma located in Bwindi impenetrable National Park. The gorilla trekking permit is always on a high demand and so competitive by multiple travelers especially during the dry season because this is when tourism in Uganda is at its highest peak. It should be noted that permits in Buhoma sector are difficult to get if at all a traveler does not make early booking, this is because it is the best trekking sector in Bwindi Forest so every traveler really prefers it.

Accommodation booking on a gorilla safari always depends on the sector one is going to do gorilla trekking in as well as a gorilla family. It is really tiresome if your booked lodge is not in that particular sector where you are to do trekking from.
