PRESS RELEASE BY UGANDA JUNGLE LODGES ON INCREASE OF GORILLA PERMITS IN RWANDA
The increase of gorilla permits fees in Rwanda from $750 to $1,500 on the 6th May 2017 by the Rwanda Development Board has left a number of tourists and Tour Operators stranded. We believe that gorilla trekking should not be the privilege of already privileged rich people, but should be an activity accessible to many in the world, as the mountain gorillas are free on Earth for everyone and should not be utilized commercially.
Uganda Jungle Lodges (www.ugandajunglelodges.com ) is here to rescue the stranded tourists and Tour Operators. We invite tour operators and tourists to trek gorillas in Uganda at only $600 per permit, which is a reasonable conservation fee.
Bwindi Jungle Lodge is a convenient location located about 7km from Kisoro town on Rubuguli road. This will favor tourists tracking from Bwindi National Park in Rushaga sector and from Mgahinga National Park which is the Uganda’s sector of Virunga Conservation Area. This will help especially those packages which are meant to track from Volcanoes National Park.
On top of providing gorilla permits and good accommodation, we can provide the service of transportation from the Cyanica border or from Kigali as well.
Payments can be done from our office in Kigali c/o Birding Rwanda, KG9 Street next to RDB, junction to KG13 Street.
