Gorilla Habituation Experience
Gorilla Habituation experience is simply known as the act of training wild mountain gorillas to become used to the sight and presence of people in their natural habitat. It involves different groups of people like the trackers, conservationists, researchers and rangers among others who take a period of about 2 to 3 years completing this habituation experience. It’s a learning experience that has just recently become a stable activity presented by Uganda Wildlife Authority. This experience restricts a maximum of 4 people each day thus bookings for this kind of activity are to be done 12 months prior to the actual habituation day specifically during the months of December all through to March and July to October.
Unlike Gorilla trekking that limits ones interaction with the gorillas to only an hour, Gorilla Habituation Experience allows a person 4 hours in the company of the gorillas. Also, gorilla habituation experience permit costs US$1,500 for each person per day, dissimilar from the USD700 paid for gorilla tracking. Since this kind of experience is hardly existent in Rwanda and or the Democratic Republic of Congo, one can only find it inside the Ugandan borders at the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park.

BEST TIME FOR CHIMPS & GORILLA HABITUATION
Although it’s regarded as a year-round activity, the best time to to Uganda for chimps and gorilla habituation is during the short dry season from mid-December to early February or over the long dry season months of June to September. These periods offer by far the easiest trekking conditions and the lowest malaria risk.You can visit Uganda and trek gorillas outside these optimum times of year but bear in mind that the going will be more difficult in the rain as paths are steep and maybe muddy. It pays to be as fit as possible before you commence your trek.
Otherwise, Uganda can be visited any time of the year and it’s easy to get a tourist visa. Apply and get the Uganda Visa online, better yet, you can get an East Africa Visa online if you plan on doing a Kenya or Uganda Safari. You can chose to pay at the immigration gate when you land at Entebbe International airport if you can sacrifice that time in cues. Either way, contact our Habituation Safaris Consultants to help you out on this one.
