Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

  • Are all permit prices included in the price?

    The permits for the gorilla and the chimpanzee represent an additional charge.

  • Any information about the Gorilla and Chimpanzee permits?

    GORILLA AND CHIMPANZEE PERMITS:
    The Uganda Wildlife Authority imposes strict regulations regarding the gorilla trekking permits. One of these is that permits must be booked and paid in advance. In order for us to do this we must collect your permit money, in addition to your normal deposit, at the time of booking. Like your deposit, the permit money is not refundable if you cancel your tour. On rare occasions, subject to permit availability, we may purchase trekking permits to view the gorillas in neighbouring Rwanda.
