If payments are still outstanding two weeks after the due date, your space may be forfeited.
Until the Final Payment due date, payments are refundable except for a cancellation fee of $1,650 per person ($1,500 per person is for the pre-purchased, non-refundable and non-transferable gorilla trekking permits); $150 per person of the cancellation fee can be applied toward another tour if reserved within six months of the cancelled trip’s departure date. Cancellations are non-transferrable. No refunds are given after the Final Payment due date.
It is the dry season with less daily rainfall, but showers are possible. The temperatures range around 70°F (21°C) during the day and 60°F (16°C) at night. The altitudinal range creates climatic variations, so expect rain and mist in the upland forests while the sun shines at the base of Volcano National Park.
Gorilla tracking can be arduous, so be prepared and equipped accordingly. Expect a one to three hour hike each way to see gorillas in dry or muddy conditions over coarse terrain. Walking sticks are provided, and porters are available for hire. The high elevation may also affect hikers. The base of the park sits at 7,500ft (2,500m) above sea level and rises to 13,500ft (4,500m).
Airfare, except flights listed as included, is not included in trip costs. Detailed logistical information and the contact information for our recommended flight-ticketing agent are included in the Trip Materials we will send you. Please let us know if you are arriving earlier or staying later as we are happy to assist you with any extra overnights that you might want to arrange.
