Selected gorilla families are habituated to human presence, and therefore the number of tourists is tightly controlled to stop risks to the gorillas and degradation of the habitat. Only 8 people can track a gaggle for a limited time of 1 hour. Therefore it’s essential to book your permit earlier, you can book two years prior.

“There are strict rules for tourists to reduce the chance of diseases passing from them to the gorillas”.
