Budget gorilla trekking is awesome. Trekking mountain gorillas is the most expensive tourist activity in Africa with a gorilla permit costing $700 for trekking and $1500 for gorilla habituation in Uganda, $400 in Democratic republic of Congo and $1500 in Rwanda. One of the cheapest ways for seeing mountain gorillas is by booking a budget gorilla safari instead of mid range or luxurious safari. One of the cheapest ways of seeing mountain gorillas is by using road transport to gorilla national parks instead of using air transport. Though use of road transport will take more time compared to road transport that takes less time.

The cheapest way to see mountain gorillas can also be by visiting during the low season, although its convenient due to muddy and slippery trails, lodges in gorilla national parks give discounted rates for their accommodation compared to peak season. For those trekking gorillas in Bwindi impenetrable forest national park, you can book permits in Ruhija or Buhoma sectors if you are landing to Entebbe International Airport but if you are coming from Rwanda then you should book permits in Rushaga or Mgahinga and only drive 5 hours to the park. This helps to save on fuel. All in all taking a trip to any part of the world is not easy because all the same you have to incur some expenses but the above are some of the ways you can make your safari less costly.
