Uganda has always been great gorilla safari tour destination with or without a private car, January to December and its one of the most budget gorilla safari destinations I would recommend in Africa.

Go Backpacking

It’s not every day that you will travel with locals and share some few staff that they use in real life, so all you need is flexibility and behaving like a local and everything will work out your way. But forget trusting whoever smiles for you, change some cash into local currency and carry along all the trip essentials –valid passport and gorilla permit. When using this option, don’t carry a lot of language, if possible hire trekking gears at the park and travel light. The journey to the park may be long but the experience is worth every struggle. This is the cheapest way possible for those looking at enjoying and spending less.
