Gorilla Video Rules?

Jump to last reply

We're going to be visiting the gorillas at PNV in Rwanda in October, and I just read in my (slightly old) Lonely Planet that we're not allowed to use a video camera unless we pay a (very large) permit fee. I've done some searching on this board and have seen lots of discussion about photography and gorilla trekking, but not so much about video. For those who have done this recently, is it true that we can't bring a video camera? Do people usually just shoot some video on their pocket cameras?

The experience itself is far more important to us than any pictures or videos we end up with, but on our last trip to Africa we got such wonderful videos that I think it would be a shame not to have a least a little video for the gorillas. Just wanting to be prepared, either way!
