Gorilla Permits
In order to protect the gorillas the Rwandan government issues Gorilla Permits – ensuring that a limited number of tourists can track them each day. These permits are in high demand, so do book early to secure your chosen date/s.

Please note:
Tracking gorillas in Rwanda can be testing and requires a moderate to good level of fitness (though it is deemed easier than from Uganda where the trails are steeper and less accessible).
Treks are often 2 to 3 hours each way (but can be more) and involve hiking through dense forest and traversing steep ravines and mountainsides, often in damp conditions.
However, all this adventure is worthwhile for a glimpse of one of nature’s finest spectacles.
There is a minimum age of 15 years on gorilla treks.

What to wear and take on your gorilla trek:
With changeable weather conditions and dense forest vegetation it is advisable to take layers of protective clothing. We recommend wearing the following:

    long-sleeved top
    warm fleece / jumper
    thick trousers
    thick wool socks (and gaiters preferably)
    strong lightweight, water-proof walking boots
    hat with brim
    garden gloves to aid scrambling up banks

And carry a small rucksack with:

    pack lunch and snacks
    camera / video camera with spare battery, memory cards or film
    light-weight rain mac / poncho
