Gorillas

 

The Mountain Gorilla is an endangered species with just over 700 left in the world. Around half of this number is found in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, Uganda which has a healthy growing population living in an intact habitat. The park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Visitors can see Gorillas in four places in Bwindi and at one in Mgahinga National Park, Uganda.

 Here in Rushaga is possible to trek:

- Nshogi group: around 26 elements
- Myshaia group: 10 elements

TIPS WHEN PLANNING A GORILLA JOURNEY

Tracking start at 8,00 am

  Plan as far in advance as possible in order to secure Gorilla permits and suitable accommodation.

Permits are worth their weight in gold and are in high demand during the peak trek months. Permits can be bought up to one year in advance. In order to secure multiple permits in specific groups, book well in advance or in the off-peak months.

Minimum age limit for visiting the gorillas is 15 years of age.

Minimum age limit for visiting the chimpanzees is 12 years of age.

Gorilla permits are non-transferable and non-refundable.  Visitors tracking gorillas all day, and who fail to see them

will be refunded 75% of the tracking fee.

Tracking gorillas is un-predictable and can be very strenuous. We encourage you for your own enjoyment to make sure that you are relatively fit and healthy.

Entry visas can be purchased on arrival at Entebbe International Airport or Kigali International Airports

Camera settings for tracking 1/50 sec - ISO 400
