  • Because this is based on a private vehicle and guide, the costs for this trip would reduce if more than two people are travelling. Conversely, they would increase substantially if only one person is travelling alone.
  • Like all our tailor-made safaris in Tanzania and Rwanda, this one is a sample itinerary and easy to adjust to your personal requirements. We will always organise a safari that matches what you want to do.
  • Subject to availability at the camps, you can depart on your chosen itinerary on any day of the year.
  • In May 2017 the gorilla-trekking permits doubled in cost to USD$1,500. These increases have been included in the costs shown here.
  • It is worth noting that the gorilla treks can be strenuous, but they are taken at a slow pace – the hike could be anything from 50 minutes to 6 or 7 hours depending on which gorilla family you visit.
