Gorilla Permits - General Conditions
•  No one under 18 is allowed to track the gorillas.

•  Gorilla Tracking Permits are issued by the respective Government Agencies in the name of the traveler. We will purchase the Permits for you on your behalf, as a complimentary service to our clients, but the transaction is governed by the rules and conditions of each country's Agency.

•  Please read the Government terms and conditions carefully - in most cases and under most circumstances, Permit fees are not refundable.

Rwanda
•  There are five acclimated family groups in Rwanda, with a total of 40 permits per day being available. These may be pre-booked up to 1 year in advance, but the chances of securing a permit even on short notice are pretty high. Gorilla viewing is excellent.

•   The ORTPN Refund Policy is detailed on their website.

Uganda
•  There are 4 habituated groups of Mountain Gorillas in Bwindi National Park - HABINYANJA, MUBARE and RUSHEGURA are in the Buhoma side of the forest, and NKURINGO is in the southern area. Only 8 daily Tracking Permits to each Group are made available by the Uganda government - a total of 32, and that's all. In the adjacent Mgahinga National Park, there is another group for which an additional 6 daily Permits are available.

•  A small number of the permits in Bwindi are sold 24 months in advance, and the balance are sold three months prior to trekking. At Mugahinga, permits are on sale three months prior to trekking date - this is due to the fact that the gorilla family at Mgahinga sometimes crosses the boarder into the Congo.

•  It's advisable that you confirm your dates with us as early as possible; however we can always try to secure permits on short notice with a full deposit - and Rwanda is always an alternative in such cases.

•   The Uganda Wildlife Authority Refund Policy is detailed on their website.
