The announcement of the offer coincides with the Uganda Golden Jubilee celebrations of independence. The move has been welcomed by tourists and the tourism fraternity at large who will get an opportunity to enjoy mountain gorilla trekking at a subsidized price in Uganda national parks which ranks among the absolute highlights of African travel experience.

The promotional prices apply for visitors wishing to track gorillas within the months of November 2012, April 2013 and May 2013. The discounted Uganda Gorilla permit prices are as shown below;
