Gorilla trekking safaris, cultural city tours and wildlife adventures

There is no better way to explore the pearl of Africa than joining Uganda Safaris to her national parks. Saso Uganda Safaris offer you exciting gorilla safaris to the rain forests of Bwindi National Parks and Mgahinga Gorilla National Parks at reasonable prices with a difference.

Follow scenic trails for game viewing in Queen ElizabethMurchison Falls and Kidepo Valley National Parks not forgetting chimpanzee trekking in Kibale Forest national park. Our Uganda Safari is private and personalised to meet, satisfy and exceed every traveller’s expectations. Enjoy a mountaineering tour to the Peak of the Uganda Mountains rewarding you with spectacular views of the surroundings. Spend extended time with mountain gorillas in the Rushaga sector of Bwindi on your gorilla habituation experience exposing you to the unique social and human-like characters of mountain gorillas.

Why You Must Choose Uganda For A Safari?

Uganda has a lot to offer to all the people who come to visit this wonderful country. The biggest lake on the African continent, Lake Victoria featuring its intimate and heavenly islands gives you an amazing resting place after a lengthy safari. Relax under a tree on the sandy beaches along the equator and pleasure in weather with temperatures around 22 degrees Celsius throughout the year; this is the perfect weather for a holiday even in 2 rainy seasons.

Uganda Gorilla Safaris

Uganda is well-known for its mountain gorilla trekking, and believe us, it deserves recognition. We can’t wait for you to experience this special moment. Found in Bwindi and Mgahinga, the 13 gorilla families are phenomenal – your time with these gentle giants will be life-changing, so we’d recommend taking 10 minutes away from the camera to truly take it all in and enjoy their reserved nature. With Rwanda’s gorilla trekking permits rising in price, Uganda’s treks are becoming ever more popular for wildlife enthusiasts.

Discovering Other Wildlife.

Chimpanzee trekking in Kibale is just as magical – feeling the adrenaline rise as a crescendo of grunting echoes through the trees is so enchanting. A habituation experience is remarkable too – you’ll spend the whole day following a pack and watching as they swing and forage through the trees.

We’re fond of the primates here, too. No doubt you’ll see the likes of golden monkeys, l’hoest’s monkeys and Uganda mangabey on your trip, especially along the Bigodi Wetlands Walk. Over 1,000 species of birds flock to Uganda too – Semliki is perfect for birdlife enthusiasts, and we love the shoebill stork.

Full Of Adrenaline Activities.

Uganda is brimming with adventure, and Jinja is our favourite spot for an adrenaline rush, whether it’s white water rafting or bungee jumping. A walking safari in Lake Mburo is unmissable too, the game is very relaxed and wanders close by, whilst Murchison River is perfect for a tranquil boat tour to see the cascading waterfall.

Chimpanzee Tracking Tours

Uganda provides the greatest opportunities for the various Chimpanzees activities in East African region including Chimpanzee habituation


Regarding the cost of a gorilla permit, each of the countries i.e Uganda, Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo has got different costs for the permits, for Uganda, a gorilla permit is $700 per person, Rwanda at $1500 per person and the democratic Republic of Congo, the permit is $400 per person. Though there is a difference in the costs, the experience of the trek in any country is unique in its way. There are also discounts on permits in all the countries.

Since mountain gorillas live within tropical rain forests with slippery and muddy grounds, the dry season is also the best time for gorilla trekking. This is also between June to September and then December to February. However, mountain gorillas can also be trekked in the wet season to make the tour more adventurous and memorable. More so trekking is cheaper since the permits are discounted at a cheaper rate.

You need to dress for trekking since it’s very helpful for every trekker. This also involves hiking boots, long-sleeved shirts, panties, hand gloves, sunglasses, hats, rain jackets, and warm light jackets to give warmth in the cold forest weather. You can expect a great experience when you are well dressed.

Always keep a 7m distance from the mountain gorillas, this is also compulsory for all trekkers. Mountain gorillas are known to be the closest relatives to human beings sharing 99.8 % DNA which makes them so vulnerable to human diseases. The distance is also meant in preventing the spread of diseases like flu and cough. The trekkers should also avoid close contact with the gorillas and no flashlight cameras are allowed while taking the photographs.

Gorilla trekking starts in the morning after having a briefing by the park rangers/guides. Once the trek has started, there is no specific time to spend in the jungle but this will vary depending on the movement of the gorillas and where they slept last night. This also means that lucky trekkers can meet the gorillas in the first 30 minutes and others can last up to 6 hours, even though it might take a long, it’s 99.9 % sure of meeting with the gorillas.

Since 900 mountain gorillas are surviving in the world, these live in Uganda in Bwindi impenetrable national park, in Volcanoes National park found in Rwanda, and in Mgahinga National park found in Uganda. The other mountain gorillas are found in Virunga National park in the Democratic Republic of Congo. This also means that for one to enjoy the gorillas, one must visit one of these destinations.

The permit includes the park entrance fee, the ranger park money who will guide you during the trekking and the services in the national park apart from the accommodation facility. This also means that a permit also covers the park entrance and the park ranger’s money.

Only tourists aged 15 years and above are allowed to trek the mountain gorillas. It’s a mandate that everyone below the age of 15 cannot be allowed to trek when he or she has paid or has travelled with a group of other trekkers.
