Gorilla tracking

Category : Services

Gorilla tracking is often described as “life changing” and with only an estimated 880 Gorillas left in the world, to see these gentle creatures in their natural habitat is a truly unique moment.     

Gorillas make their homes in and amongst the bamboo-covered slopes of the Virunga Mountains in the Volcanoes National Park in northern Rwanda. Trek to see them and you’ll be introduced by your expert trackers and guides to one of the fully-habituated families of mountain gorillas and you can stay with them for an awe-inspiring hour, often crouching just a few feet away, whilst the gorillas go about their daily lives.

Gorilla Guidelines

There are several guidelines that RDB kindly requests all visitors adhere by:

To minimize possible transmission of human diseases, visitors are asked to maintain a distance of 7m (about 22 feet) from the gorillas. If you are sick with a cold, flu or other contagious illness, please do not visit the gorillas.

Viewing time is limited to one hour.

Maximum 8 visitors per group.

Spitting in the park is strictly prohibited.

Should you need to cough, cover your mouth and turn away from the gorillas.

When with the gorillas, keep your voice low.

Try not to make rapid movements that may frighten the gorillas.

If a gorilla should charge or vocalize at you, do not be alarmed, stand still, look away from the gorilla and follow your guide’s directions.

Do not litter.

Tracking can be done by persons of age 16 and above.

What to wear

Recommended clothing is long trousers and shirts when in the forest to avoid nettle stings, Steady walking shoes or hiking boots are essential. Raingear useful.

What else to bring

Bring a water bottle and a small snack although eating, drinking and smoking near the gorillas is forbidden. Don’t forget your camera!
