My favorite thing to do when coming to Rwanda. A surreal experience of seeing wild mountain gorillas in their natural environment. Words cannot describe this adventure. You just have to experience it.

Usually no companies will be listing prices online for this type of tours. You will have to contact them directly by email to get a quote. I can tell you that the gorilla trekking permit alone was $750 USD in August 2016.

I too was uncomfortable with this but went ahead and followed the instructions. No problems encountered , however I called my credit card company and requested a new card shortly thereafter to avoid any later fraud issues
