The gorillas are completely wild but have become used to seeing
a few humans after years of habituation. Many of the expert guides
have been involved in this process since the beginning and are able
to explain the complicated etiquette involved in meeting a giant
silverback. This is an opportunity afforded only to a select few,
as just eight visitors are allowed to view each group every day.
Tracking through dense forest with steep slopes means that
participants do need to be physically fit to enjoy the track. Once
the gorillas are located, spend a maximum of one hour with them
before returning back to camp. Please note only children aged 15
and above can track gorilla.
Permit: A one day tracking permit is currently
US$500 per person, valid until 30 June 2013, and must be bought in
advance in person in Bwindi. We are happy to purchase your permit
