  4. Where do mountain gorillas live?

  6. What is gorilla trekking age limit?

    Age limit is 15 years in all Destinations. Each traveler below 15 years is not allowed to trek mountain gorillas despite his/her physical appearance and capabilities. This is to ensure the safety of travelers and mountain gorillas in the jungle. However, if a child is almost making 15 years, his/her parent can sign an agreement as fully responsible for anything that may happen to the child during the trekking time. The letter is written and signed by the parent and then submitted to the Uganda Wildlife Authority (UWA) or Rwanda Development Board (RDB) for confirmation.

  7. How many people trek a gorilla family?

    Eight people visit one gorilla family every day. Only 8 permits are therefore available for each gorilla group in Rwanda, Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo each day. The allocation of gorillas to travelers depends on the hiking abilities of travelers. Travelers are therefore reminded to disclose their hiking abilities to their guides so as to get a suitable gorilla family they can hike with no difficulty.

  8. How long time does I spend with gorillas?

    The actual time to spend with gorillas is strictly an hour counted from the time travelers meet the allocated gorilla family. However, you can spend several hours in the jungle before reaching gorillas. The hike can be as short as 30 minutes to several hours depending on the location of the allocated gorilla family and their speed of movements. An hour is for taking photographs, capturing videos and embracing the human-like characters of mountain gorillas plus their social behaviors.
