Although there are several subspecies of gorillas, the mountain gorilla is the most rare and the most tracked. In the forested slopes of the Virunga Mountains in Rwanda and Uganda as well as Bwindi Impenetrable Forest there are several habituated family groups that tolerate the presence of humans. Accompanied by trained guides you will head up into the heights of the mountains where you will get to spend time with these most fascinating of primates, an experience that will stay with you for the rest of your life!
There are several guidelines you will have to adhere to on a tracking tour to see either gorillas or chimpanzee and these are listed at the bottom of this page. In addition there are gorilla and chimpanzee permits issued by the tourism authorities of the host country. These are limited in number as only a certain number of people are allowed to visit the gorillas & chimpanzees in all areas. With the gorillas your time with them will be restricted to just one hour and the same is the case for some of the chimpanzee areas, although most allow you to stay with the chimps as long as you like...or as long as you can keep up!
