After four years of great low-season rates for gorilla permits in Uganda, effective from 2018 permit prices will be uniform irrespective of when you travel. However, those who travel with Adventure Consults still have one last opportunity to book permits at the lowest price ever — US$450 per person during the upcoming month of November. A few spots are still available and our This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. is ready to take your last-minute bookings.   

Destination accessibility and regional connectivity are two of the keys to a rewarding vacation experience. And now comes great news out of East Africa that following a three-year hiatus, Precision Air has resurrected its popular Arusha/Kilimanjaro–Entebbe route. 

Adventure Consults realizes that most (if not all) travelers don't enjoy spending lots of time in motor vehicles or motorized boats. As a result, we've decided to introduce cycling safaris as a way to complement the safari experience for those traveling with us in Uganda.

Koko the gorilla learned to communicate with humans by learning more than a thousand modified ASL hand signs. Kanzi the bonobo interacts with people via a portable keyboard with lexigrams.

No question, they are the tallest animals on earth. Yet we still know so little about the giraffe! The Rothschild giraffe, in particular, is facing an almost silent extinction. According to Giraffe Conservation Foundation (GCF), around 1,250 Rothschild giraffes are protected within the boundaries of Uganda's Murchison Falls National Park — about 50% of those remaining in the world.

Ever wonder about the first human name recorded in history? Well, it apparently wasn’t for a king, nor a warrior, nor a poet. According to one accountant, the first names appeared around the 33rd century BC. Since then, naming a newborn baby has been part of human culture. And in Africa, it’s cause for a great celebration. 

Good news from Uganda Wildlife Authority (UWA) is that Gorilla permit price will be maintained for the years 2018-2019 (US$600 for Foreign non-residents, US$500 foreign residents, & UGX 250,000 East Africans). There has been a rumor that UWA had suspended sale of 2018 Gorilla permits but this is not true. Permit sales are open and some months are already looking busy.

Not every destination gives travelers a reason to visit during off-peak seasons. But kudos to Uganda for introducing special rates during the months of April, May and November. Four years after the decrease in gorilla permit prices during this period, Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park has witnessed a marked increase in visitation.

 

Catching much of the tourism industry by surprise, the Rwanda Development Board (RDB) has doubled the cost of gorilla trekking permits from US$750 to US$1,500 for all visitors effective immediately. The price increase will not affect travelers who had already booked their trips and purchased gorilla permits at the time of this announcement on May 6.

Twenty-three years after the genocide against the Tutsi, Adventure Consults joined the rest of the world to remember and honor the more than one million lives lost in Rwanda during the internal strife of 7th April to 15th July 1994.
