The same happens to Congo, Gorilla Trekkers need to fly into Kigali Rwanda and drive to Goma Congo there by paying Rwanda and Congo Tourist Visa fee separately which is very expensive.

In Uganda, you can get to Bwindi Forest and Mgahinga Park in 2 hours’ time when you fly with scheduled flight of AeroLink Uganda, there by paying less and get a chance to reduce the distance and enjoy trekking Gorillas with cheap Uganda Gorilla Permit.

Some Gorilla groups in Bwindi Forest are strenuous to trek and in spite of that, Uganda has Tourist Destinations variety.
