booking gorilla tracking, Rwanda

Gorilla tracking is a thing to do in Rwanda.
Very rare mountain gorillas live in area, that is split between Rwanda, Uganda and Congo. Luckily, most of gorillas groups are currently on teritory of Rwanda. Still, there are only 7 groups of them and 8 people per day per group are allowed to visit. This makes permit booking (500 USD per person!) quite challenging.
If you plan visiting Rwanda, don't forget to book at least 3 months in advance. Otherwise you will end up like me, mailing desperately all tour agencies in Kigali, to arrange for me a permit just 3 weeks before the trip.
May thanks to owner of WildlifeTours Rwanda, who made it possible! :)
