Update: Mountain Gorilla Trekking Permits


Mountain GorillaThis is just a quick update to let you know about a recent change that the Rwanda Development Board have put into place in regards to Gorilla permits. The Gorilla Trekking Permits are increasing in price by 50%.

This increase is effective as of the 1st June 2012, and permits reserved after this date will incur the new price of $750 USD.

The additional income will be used to further strengthen protective measures for the mountain gorillas, fund conservation efforts, research and community outreach programmes, all of which depend on income generated by tourists coming to see the gorillas in Rwanda.

What we have been advised by our agent in Rwanda is that if Oasis is to book and pay for your permit for any trekking date until the end of the year, that we will be honoured the old price, as long as the permit is booked and paid for in full by the 1st May 2012. So if you would like Oasis to reserve a permit for you for your trip, then please think about booking and paying this before May 2012, before the new prices take effect.

If you would like more detailed information about the Gorilla trekking permit and what is involved then you can have a look at our Trip Add Ons page and scroll down to Mountain Gorilla Trekking Permit.  At present the permits are £375.
