Your Guide to The Ultimate African Experience

Today we shine the light on Mountain Gorillas, yes the endangered mountain gorillas. These gentle giants live in forests up in the mountains, at elevations of 2,000 to 4,000 meters. They have thicker and denser hair compared to chimpanzees and other apes, which helps them survive in a habitat where temperatures often drop below freezing.

Booking Gorilla permits

Gorilla permit bookings and tracking are within the booking terms and regulations of relevant authorities in Uganda and Rwanda. Permits are open to the public for sale two years in advance and sold on a first come first serve basis with payment. A gorilla permit is not a guarantee of seeing gorillas. Unforeseen circumstances may sometimes limit access to the gorillas at short notice. Refunds are entirely at the discretion of the relevant authorities but we shall do our best to help while respecting partner rules and regulations.

Gorilla Tracking Costs

No question, every Gorilla tracking experience is unique regardless of the price and location. Feel free to book Gorilla activities in Parc de Volcans, Mt. Gahinga Lodge, and Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. See the below Gorilla tracking cost. Get in touch

Rwanda Permit per person – UDS 1500
Uganda Permit per person – USD 700

Note that Gorilla tracking permits are booked all year round.

There are less than 2,000 mountain gorillas left in the world living in Rwanda, Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

Mountain gorillas are found in 4 national parks, namely; Bwindi Impenetrable National Park (Uganda), Volcano National Park (Rwanda), Mgahinga Gorilla National Park (Uganda), and Virunga National Park – Southern Sector (Democratic Republic of Congo).

Mountain Gorillas are the largest of the great primates and are the most endangered species. No question, it is critical to ensure the health and well-being of every individual gorilla. More than half of the gorilla population is recorded in Bwindi Impenetrable.
