History of Discounted gorilla permits
Uganda was the first country to offer discounted gorilla permits in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and Mgahinga. This initiative was launched when Uganda was celebrating 50 years of independence. Low season gorilla permits were meant to attract more tourists to Uganda most especially during the low season months of April, May and November. With the increase of Rwanda gorilla permit price from USD750.00 to USD1500.00, Uganda scrapped off the low season gorilla permits which were costing USD450.00 in order to keep pace with Rwanda while maintain the affordability of permits in Uganda. Currently its only Democratic Republic of Congo that is offering low season gorilla permits.
