When to go

Standard low season dates from between 15 October and 15 December and between 1 March and 31 May offer a great advantage. Low season is considered better for photography by some, as well as cooler weather potentially increasing animal sightings but high season dates are regularly preferred.

Important Information

Only when payment has been received can permits for gorilla tracking in the relevant National Park be purchased. Getting a gorilla permit is not a guarantee of seeing a gorilla. Local conditions sometimes mean that access to the gorillas is made impossible at short notice. We are unable to accept liability for any circumstance that might lead to gorilla viewing being cancelled, whether it is closure of the National Park or borders; absence of the gorillas; security changes.

Refunds are at the discretion of the relevant authority and we cannot accept liability for them. We will endeavour to obtain a refund and if a refund is paid by the relevant authority, we shall pass it on to the client.

Water disposal is controlled and solar electricity is also used; guests are asked to be mindful of their usage.

When possible, they source the food from local producers, helping strengthen their relationship with their neighbours and providing them with extra income. It is encouraged that guests visit the local orphanage where they can see a dance performance.

We can arrange guides and vehicles to take you around. Every effort is made to ensure that vehicles are provided in a roadworthy condition but no liability can be accepted for breakdown, or any damage or delay. The guides are instructed to follow the code of conduct for guides (available on request), which you must not ask them to break in any way.

Children

Travelling with children

Children of all ages are welcome at the lodge but there is a minimum age requirement of 15 to track the gorillas.
Children under 2 years stay for free.
Children of 12 years and under staying in the same room as parents pay 50% of adult rate.
Activities can be organised at the lodge for the children when adults are in the park.
