Gorilla trek November/December - group wanted

Hi, I recently arrived in Uganda and really want to go on a gorilla trek but so far trying to organise this as a solo traveller has been tricky and expensive. If any groups are going who would be happy to have me tag along, or if anyone is in a similar situation and wants to form a group, please let me know!

Thanks,

Becca

Sorry Brovad safaris, I didn't see your post but wouldn't have been able to go anyway, but thank you.

Thanks for the tip, ugandasafaris - I'll look into this! Does buying a permit also get you a guide? I'm looking to go over a weekend.

Gorilla Permit fee include;

Park entry fees and Game ranger fee. So no need to hire a guide if you can make it to the trekking point on your own.

Kisoro gorilla groups can be accessed easily by public transport as compared to Buhoma. From Kisoro town you will hire a private car to take you to either Rushaga or Nkuringo depending on the gorilla group you will be assigned to.

You may take a motor bike but the road is not good especially when it has rained.
