Gorilla Permit Bookings

Book Gorillas and Chimpanzee Permits with 4×4 Uganda

When you book a car from 4×4 Uganda Limited, we assist you with booking gorilla permits, chimpanzee tracking permits and habituation experience, for Uganda, Rwanda and Democratic Republic of Congo. This is at no extra charge. You only pay for the permits and receive them when receiving the car.

A permit (May be for gorillas or chimpanzees) acts as permission to join the trek in search for the primates. Without a permit, you are not allowed to go gorilla trekking or chimpanzee tracking.

Note that, the number of permits available per day is limited, and their demand is very high through out the year. Visitors are therefore advised to book early and reserve their permits on any day convenient to them depending on their travel program.

Rwanda gorilla permits are managed and sold by Rwanda Development Board, while Uganda Gorillas and Chimpanzee Permits are managed and sold by Uganda Wildlife Authority.
