Rwanda is by far the leading gorilla trekking destination in the whole world and one wonders how many gorilla permits are available in Rwanda everyday to guarantee people have enough gorilla passes to see mountain gorillas in their natural setting. Rwanda is commonly known as a country with southern hills, Rwanda has moved from her passed bad memories of the 1994 genocide to become on country with the cleanest city in Africa and the best place to visit habituated mountain gorillas in the wild. Apart from mountain gorillas, Rwanda has wildlife in Akagera National Park, chimpanzees in Nyungwe National Park and water bodies such as Lake Kivu. Universal Ventures Rwanda offers life changing gorilla trekking experiences and that’s why we are interested in sharing information about gorilla permits available in Rwanda on a daily basis.
In all countries that have mountain gorillas, it is a must that each habituated mountain gorilla family must be visited by a maximum of 8 people per day and for one hour to make sure that these wild gorillas have enough time for them to feed and go about their daily natural activities. Rwanda just like Uganda and Democratic Republic of Congo adheres to the rule of 8 people per gorilla family. 80 Gorilla permits available in Rwanda every day Rwanda has 20 gorilla families located in Volcanoes National Park out of which 10 families are for research and 10 are for gorilla trekking. This therefore means 80 gorilla permits available in Rwanda everyday basis to be bought by interested visitors and tourists to come and visit mountain gorillas in Rwanda. This is because each habituated gorilla family must be trekked by 8 people.

A gorilla permit in Rwanda to see habituated mountain gorillas in Volcanoes National Park costs $1500 per person per trek for one hour with wild but habituated mountain gorillas. Rwanda At $1500 per gorilla permit sold, Rwanda aims at generating a hooping $120000 from 80 gorilla permits sold assuming that all 10 gorilla families are fully booked. Just like Uganda, Rwanda has both low and high seasons meaning that on several occasions some gorilla permits are not sold. High season months of June, July, and August, September, December, January and February tend to attract many tourists while the rest of the months do not.
During high season, Rwanda gorilla permits tend to sell out quickly and one is advised to book these permits in advance.
