Gorilla trek permit cancellation and refund
Gorilla trekking in Uganda or Rwanda necessitates having a gorilla permit which is currently sold at $ 700 in Uganda and $1500 in Rwanda. Several travellers save for years to have at least a day in Bwindi forest National Park, Mgahinga National park and Virunga Volcanoes National park in Rwanda. For some reason, gorilla trekking may not be possible

In case you have failed to track gorillas for any reason, the Uganda Wildlife Authority may base on the rules and policies set. UWA reserves all the rights to refund the client or not according to its policy. However this doesn’t guarantee that the cancellation will be acknowledged all the time.
