When is the best time of year to go and see the mountain gorillas in Rwanda?
We recommend visiting Volcanoes National Park for optimum gorilla viewing. The best time of year is either December-March or June-September.
How many nights should I stay in Rwanda?
Brownell recommends roughly four nights in Rwanda. One night in Ugali and three nights in Volcano region is ample time to soak in the local culture and go gorilla trekking.
Do I need a license or permit to view the gorillas?
Each person in the group will need a permit. These cost about $750 per person. Your Brownell advisor is happy to help you obtain the proper paperwork for these mandatory permits.
