In Uganda, November is among the shortest rainy seasons of the year. The rainy seasons in Uganda are termed the "low season," which makes these months the best time to travel to Uganda for budget travelers who are interested in trekking mountain gorillas in either Mgahinga Gorilla National Park or Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park.


Where can visitors go mountain gorilla trekking in November?

Uganda offers two national parks protecting mountain gorillas: Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park and Mgahinga Gorilla National Park, both situated in the southwestern part of the country.


Uganda’s November gorilla trekking is the best-done activity in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park, which protects almost half of the total mountain gorilla population in the world. Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park accommodates approximately 17 mountain gorilla families in different trekking sectors. Accommodation lodges ranging from budget to standard to luxury are available in all Bwindi impenetrable trekking sectors, enhancing your stay in this African dense jungle. Rushaga, Buhoma, Nkuringo, and Ruhija are the trekking sectors in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park.


Why go gorilla trekking in November in Uganda?

Uganda’s gorilla trekking in November is interesting in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park, as you cherish the wet, slippery, and muddy slopes of the mountain forest of Bwindi Impenetrable. In November, Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park receives a lot of rainfall, and its tall tree canopies can’t allow easy sunlight ray penetration to the ground. Therefore, the mountain gorilla trekking experience is strenuous due to the slippery, muddy, and wet ground, but travelers' physical fit makes the mountain gorilla trekking experience a fascinating adventure, and although if you are physically fit, you are always allocated to the gorilla trekking family that matches your fitness.


Before booking accommodation for your gorilla trekking experience in November, be advised that you must first know which of these sectors and mountain gorilla families you would love to trek because all these sectors offer their own lodges.


During gorilla trekking in November, lodges in these sectors of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest have less occupancy; therefore, they provide discounts to group travelers at affordable rates compared to the high season. Devine African Safaris recommends November to all budget travelers interested in visiting Uganda and has a plethora of November discounted offers ranging from the park lodges.


Gorilla trekking permit November

The price of a gorilla trekking permit in Uganda remained constant in November at 700 USD, while the cost of a gorilla habituation experience was set at 1500 USD per person per day. Due to the limited number of gorilla trekking permits, all travelers planning to go gorilla trekking should book in advance 2020.


November is considered a low season, so we encourage travelers to make their gorilla trekking safari booking 6 months prior to their travel date in order to avoid last-minute booking panic, although gorilla trekking permits are not as competitive in November compared to peak season. 


In conclusion, the gorilla trekking experience in November is the best travel season for budget travelers who are interested in a life-changing dream but could hardly make it happen during the peak season because of the high rates from the lodges and tour operators.
