Though there is a difference in the costs, the experience of the trek in any country is unique in its own way. There are also discounts on the permits in all the countries.

Since the mountain gorillas live within the tropical rain forest with the slippery and muddy grounds, dry season is also the best time for gorilla trekking. This is also between the months of June to September and then December to February. However the mountain gorillas can also be trekked with in the wet season to make the tour more adventurous and more memorable. More so trekking is cheaper since the permits are discounted to a cheaper rate.

You need to dress for trekking since it’s very helpful for every trekker.

The trekkers should also avoid close contact with the gorillas and no flash light cameras are allowed while taking the photographs.

Gorilla trekking starts in the morning after having a briefing by the park rangers/guides. Once the trek has started, there is no specific time to spend in the jungle but this will vary depending on the movement of the gorillas and where they slept last night. This also means that lucky trekkers can meet the gorillas in the first 30 minutes and other can last upto 6 hours, even though it might take long, it’s a 99.9 % sure of meeting with the gorillas.

Since there are 900 mountain gorillas that are surviving in the world, these live in Uganda in bwindi impenetrable national park, in Volcanoes National park found in Rwanda, and in Mgahinga National park found in Uganda. The other mountain gorillas are found in Virunga National park in the Democratic Republic of Congo. This also means that in order for one to enjoy the gorillas, must visit one of these destinations.

The permit includes the park entrance fee, the ranger park money who will guide you during the trekking and the services in the national park apart from the accommodation facility. This also means that a permit also covers the park entrance and the park ranger’s money.

Only the tourists aged 5 years and above are allowed to trek the mountain gorillas. It’s a mandate that everyone below the age of 15 cannot be allowed to trek when he or she has paid or has travelled with a group of other trekkers.
