Based on the enthusiastic recommendation from friends of Equitours, we are eager to check out for ourselves the riding and gorilla trekking in Uganda. We have scheduled an exploratory Nile riding safari with Mel Fox February 11-18, 2018, which will be followed by gorilla treks in the Bwindi Inpenetrable Forest National Park, February 18-21, before continuing on to Tanzania for the Serengeti Safari February 21-March 1. Spaces are limited, but we still have room to fill for all or part of what is sure to be a wonderful African experience!
Price for the ride in Uganda is $4,000 per person, and the meeting point is Entebbe, where you will be picked up from you accommodations on February 11. Please see further details on our trip page and some additional photos below.
Price for the gorilla treks will be approximately $3,965 per person, subject to change based on airfare to Kihihi and total number of participants. Accommodation will be at the Silverback Lodge at the park, and includes two days of gorilla trekking. Now is an excellent time to visit Ugandan gorillas, as the cost for visitation permits here is likely to rise after this year, as it has recently done for Rwanda, from $750 per permit to $1,500. The permits included in the Ugandan trip price is $600 per trek, and so currently remains a great savings.
