This is the chance then where you will visit one of the 3 countries where you will visit the gorillas. Gorillas are both primates and apes and are now considered to be the largest apes in the world according to research carried out. Gorillas or of different species hence subspecies. While on your last-minute gorilla tour, you are entitled to visit the eastern low land gorillas and the mountain gorillas.
All of these are only located in the East African community (Uganda, Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo). The mountain gorillas are found in the Virunga Mountains which run over the border of these countries whereas Mt Kahuzi and Mt Biega which forms Kahuzi-Biega national park in DR Congo have the Eastern low land gorillas. The safest countries to do your last-minute gorilla tour can be Uganda and Rwanda.
Your last-minute gorilla tour can either be gorilla trekking or gorilla habituation which takes place in Volcanoes national park of Rwanda, Mgahinga and Bwindi National Parks of Uganda. Trekking gorillas allow you to spend an hour in the presence of mountain gorillas in their natural environment whereas gorilla habitation allows you to spend four hours in the presence of the mountain gorillas. Gorilla permits in Uganda are much cheaper than those in Rwanda but the experience will not differ from each other.
This gorilla tour, therefore, suits travelers who come to East Africa particularly Uganda, Rwanda and Congo for a conference, volunteering, meetings, relief work, business trips, incentives and much more and would like to visit the gorillas before they go back home. Therefore, there are different things you need to know before you book your last-minute tour and among others are;
Quick decision making, the earlier you decide for trekking the mountain gorillas, the easier and earlier our tour consultant team will make a booking for the permits. The gorilla trekking permits are in high demand and this calls for earlier booking and payment to avoid disappointments. On booking, we will purchase your permit and be ready to wait for the trekking day.
Means and mode of payment, we advise you to make payments using cash since you will be already in the country. Paying as you make your safari booking is highly advisable since some of the items in the safari package such as transportation, accommodation and much more need to be paid earlier than the day when the safari commences. You can meet us at our offices or we can find you at any agreed point.
Smaller groups are highly encouraged since bigger groups are difficult to handle and organize for this last-minute gorilla tour. We organize small groups of about 2 to 4 people and this means that you will have a great experience since only 8 visitors are allowed to trek the booked family. Note that, we buy permits from Uganda wildlife Authority and Rwanda Development Board.
Flexibility is another factor since being a last-minute client, you need to adjust to the services available. Take an example if there is a change of accommodation or room type, change of car and gorilla family trekked. There can be a change in the safari driver guide and this calls for your positive attention.
In case you inquire earlier, we are ready to arrange the safari within 12 hours of the working day since it will involve confirming and booking tourist vehicles, accommodations and the trekking permits. We have great experience in organizing last-minute tour safaris in Africa and ranging from budget to luxury hotels depending on your choice. Our safaris are tailor-made which calls for an adjustment in case there is something you would like to add or remove.
