Gorilla trekking and particularly gorilla habituation experience are special and once in a lifetime experiences – You will be having a close encounter with creatures that look and behave like we humans. In countries were gorilla tracking is possible, gorilla tourism is far more valuable – Most visitors come for gorilla tours alongside other activities like golden monkey trekking, birdwatching, mountain hiking, chimpanzee trekking or a hike to the Dian Fossey grave to mention but a few. With a limited number of Gorilla groups available for gorilla trekking, only 8 visitors are allowed to visit each gorilla family in a day. Gorilla permits sell like hot cake and competition for the available daily permits is high – Gorilla permits are sold on first come first serve basis. Visitor must book early in order to secure their gorilla permits.

When is the best time for gorilla trekking? Gorilla trekking is a year round activity but the periods just after the rains are perfect for gorilla tracking. During a gorilla safari, the decision on which gorilla family to track depends on your overall fitness and preference. Some gorilla groups live near the gorilla tracking starting points while others go deeper in the forest.
