Following overwhelming demand for gorilla permits during the past 3 months, the Uganda Wildlife Authority (UWA) last week increased the number of gorilla families for tracking, following the successful habituation of two families.

 

A statement from UWA management reads in part, ”On many occasions, our visitors travel to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park for gorilla tracking without a confirmation that they will get a permit and end up placing a lot of pressure on us to provide permits even when there is none. In order to address this need, we have increased the number of gorilla families for tracking from 15 to 17, following the successful habituation of Katwe group in Buhoma and Christmas group in Nkuringo.”
