Interesting Gorilla News

Jump to last reply

Volcanoes Safaris, one of the tour companies that specializes in gorilla-trekking safaris (and the company through whom my upcoming trip is booked) has posted some interesting news about Rwanda and Uganda on their web site, www.volcanoessafaris.com. Among the highlights:
-- PNV now has SEVEN gorilla families open for visiting by tourists. One of the new groups (Kwitonda) crossed into Uganda from the DRC, while the other group (Hirwa) is a newly-formed group composed of individuals formerly with other PNV groups.
-- Rwanda is planning to raise the permit fee effective June 1 2007 from $375 to $500.
-- The gorilla family that used to be accessible in Mgahinga Gorilla National Park in Uganda has gone over the border and is currently not reachable.

Head over to Volcanoes' site to see all the details ... click "Updates" at the top of the home page to get to the latest news.
