Uganda offers discount on gorilla-viewing permits

By Natalia Thomson
Gorilla UgandaThe Uganda Wildlife Authority has lowered gorilla permit prices to $350 ($150 off the regular price) for foreign nonresidents for use during the months of November, April and May.

Bwindi Impenetrable Forest in Uganda is a Unesco site and home to some 350 mountain gorillas. To observe the gorillas, visitors need a seasoned guide and a permit secured well in advance, usually by the tour operator.

Bwindi is also an ideal area in which to view non-habituated chimpanzees, more than 100 other species of mammals, 346 species of birds, and 163 species.
