Following dialogue between tourism stakeholders and UWA on the gorilla and chimpanzee permit tariffs effective 01 July 2020, please note clarification on permit prices:
• All permits that have already been purchased and fully paid for will not be affected. There is no need to top up to the new rate, even if trekking takes place after July 2020.
• All permits for trekking before July 2020 remain at USD 600 (gorillas) and USD 150 (chimps)
• All NEW permits purchased for trekking from 01 July 2020 are subject to the increased rate of USD 700 (gorillas) and USD 200 (chimps)
