Gorilla trekking activity, which contributes over $400 million to Rwanda’s tourism sector, has resulted in a significant GDP boost. Ten percent of this revenue is reinvested in communities.
From the income collected from the sector, the country erns up to $12,000 per day, $360,000 a month and $4,320,000 a year just from gorilla safaris. Rwanda’s revenue-share program is the most generous of any African country. Booking volcanoes gorilla permits for foreign residents requires you to rise a total of $1500 to undertake the experience in the jungle of Volcanoes National Park.
Volcanoes national park is a supplement of the two areas in Africa which inhabit mountain gorillas except Bwindi impenetrable forest national park in Uganda and Virunga national park in DR Congo.
Although the park is home to one habituated gorilla family, it also houses 10 other gorilla groups that are available for trekking year-round. This results in the issuance of 80 gorilla permits per day, enabling each group to host up to 8 visitors daily.
The best time for Rwanda gorilla safaris is at the peak in the dry months of June to September and December to February where the grounds are less slippery and the hike to the top of the mountain is less strenuous however the rainy seasons of April – May, and November generally are not as competitive as the dryer seasons.
