A total of 56 gorilla viewing permits are issued each day by the Rwandese Wildlife and Tourism Authorities it's important to book these permits early as they are in high demand it's advised to book these permits at least 6 months in advance. If you want to see the gorilla's you should be in good physical condition since the trek can take between 2 and 5 hours to locate the assigned gorilla family and you must be at least 15 years or older.
Gorilla trekking is not the only activity on offer. The lodges are a great base to explore this fascinating corner of Africa you can visit the bustling nearby
