Low season Gorilla permits in Uganda - Lastever 2017
Greetings from The sounds of the Jungle Uganda and we hope you continue to live life to the fullest wherever you are reading this.
The Tourist season kicked off with loads of travel enthusiasm this year in both Uganda and Rwanda. Babies in both Bwindi forest and Parc national de Volcano have been added onto the bidding gorilla families. We even had twins twice in the season! How cool can this get!
On the other side, on 05th May 2017 the whole Tourism fraternity wake up to the jaw-dropping news that in Rwanda the price of the gorilla permit had double and with immediate effect! While we were still digesting this news, Uganda came out to announce that 2017 was going to be the final year in the history of gorillas to offer the low season - discounted gorilla permit. 2 blows to the tourism fraternity, but we remain very adventurous amidst all these setbacks.
Destination Jungle is running the final promotion with the discounted gorilla permit group tour November 2017 where 2 of our lodges, one in Ishasha and another one located on the outskirts of Bwindi forest at the beautiful lake Mulehe are offering discounted rates on accommodations during this promotion.
