Given that it’s a new year, Acacia safaris Uganda has come up with the 2021 discounted Uganda safari packages to the most visited Uganda national parks including wildlife and gorilla trekking safari experiences.
With the start of 2021, tourism in Uganda is getting better as tourist destinations and borders have set Standard Operating Procedures that have made it possible for tourists to have safe trips even amidst the COVID 19 pandemic.
By the end of 2020, the Uganda Wildlife Authority (UWA) set discounted prices for trips from December 2020 to March 2021. The discounts were especially for gorilla permits and chimpanzee trekking permits with a few discounts for wildlife park entries.

Gorilla trekking is for sure a top Uganda safari activity for many travelers seeking a primate tracking experience just like no other. Uganda, which is home to half of the world’s remaining mountain gorillas has two national parks with these elusive apes.

Each of these sectors has several habituated gorilla families that are open to gorilla trekking by tourists on Uganda safaris. A sector is allocated on your preference during booking or depending on availability when you need to trek.
