Safari Vehicles

It is our responsibility to ensure that our budget safari travelers also use well serviced safari cars that are in good working conditions. The slight difference there is with luxury travelers is regarding the comfort of vehicle, which is a land cruiser while budget travelers travel in a safari van. However, what you should have in mind is that you will get a window seat and the safari guide-drives that will take on are the same so you will certain benefit from their vast knowledge and good wildlife information.

Wildlife Encounters

Regardless of whether you are a luxury or budget traveler you will see similar features, visit the same site (basing on your preference). You will be briefed by the same park wardens and enjoy similar tracking experience especially when going to track Gorillas, chimpanzees, colobus monkeys as well as Golden monkeys.

Budget as well as luxury travelers during their gorilla tours, will be guided by similar park ranger guides and receive equal treatment. We conduct our Rwanda Gorilla Safaris in Volcanoes National Park and then our Uganda Gorilla Tracking Safaris in either Bwindi Impenetrable National Park or Mgahing Gorilla National Park.

The highlight of any safari in East Africa is tracking the mountain gorillas either in Rwanda or Uganda.  There is not any other known wildlife encounter that can be matched to coming face to face with the giant mountain gorillas and staring into their big brown eyes! According to the Uganda Wildlife Authority  – Uganda and the Rwanda Development Board –Rwanda which are the wildlife governing bodies in the two countries, each year, millions and millions of foreign holidaymakers travel from all parts of the world just to come and trek these gorillas.

This too is well manifested in the high demand for the gorilla tracking permits’ it requires one to make their booking at least three months to the desired date they wish to track. Each day of the year, there are people tracking the gorillas and during the peak tourist season the demand is overwhelming.

Holidaymakers on Budget gorilla safaris will also track similar groups of gorillas just as luxury travelers. You are all allowed to take photographs with them as well as spend the same time (one hour) with the gorillas. Irrespective of whether you are a Budget or a Luxury traveler, the cost of a gorilla permit in Rwanda is $1,500, while in Uganda it is at US $700
