What is Gorilla Trekking?
Gorilla trekking is most popular tourist activity in Rwanda and Uganda. It ranks as one of the world’s best adventures in Africa. Gorilla trekking is also known as gorilla tracking, takes place in only 3 countries in the world namely; Rwanda, Uganda and Democratic Congo Republic. These are the only places where you can see these Gentle Giants in their Natural Habitat. The trek in search for mountain gorillas is quiet strenuous, goes through steep and slippery jungle grounds. The hike can take between 1-7 hours depending on how gorillas move in their natural habitat. It also depends on how fast you move. If you have a slow person on the group, you are likely to take long on the trek.
Cost of Gorilla Trekking Permits – How to Book a Gorilla Tour?
First of all you must possess a gorilla permit that acts as permission for one to track gorillas. Rwanda gorilla trekking permits are booked through Travel Agents / Tour operators, and through Rwanda Development Board (RDB) in Kigali.
