This is one of the most famous activities. Gorilla permits must be booked in advance since they are a requirement for gorilla tracking. The lodge can arrange these permits from Uganda Wildlife Authority (UWA) on behalf of our clients if asked in advance or at the time of booking the lodge. They cost 600 US dollars for foreign non residents, 500 US dollars for foreign residents and 250,000sh for East Africans. During the promotional months of April, May and November, the gorilla permits will cost 450 US dollars for foreign non residents, 400 US dollars for foreign residents and 150,000sh for East Africans. Gorilla groups in Ruhija are Bitukura, Oruzongo and Kyaguliro.
