The mountain gorilla (gorilla beringei beringei) is the world’s most endangered ape. Although gorilla tracking remains the ultimate wildlife experience, rules and regulations have been put in place to protect this endangered ape.
Mountain Gorillas are found small portions of the protected afro-montane forests of South Western Uganda, North Western Rwanda and Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). The threats to the mountain gorilla and its habitat are many. But the biggest threat is the possibility of disease transmission from humans to gorillas. So, to address the issue of potential disease transmission to the gorillas and to reduce behavioral disturbances to this fragile population, gorilla tracking rules and regulations have been developed.
By following these rules and through the purchase of the gorilla permit, you are contributing to the conservation of the mountain gorilla. Please note that any breach of these rules may lead to termination of the gorilla trek without any refund.
