Like any other primates such as the chimpanzees, and the golden monkeys, the age limit of gorilla trekking also applies. Many tourists as they plan to travel with their kids, they always have a specific question “What is the age limit for gorilla trekking or golden monkey trekking?” The age limit for gorilla tracking and golden monkey trekking is 15 years. The authorities are very strict on this, so kindly make sure all clients and children are 15 or older in order to avoid any sad incidents like guest(s) kids being refused to track!

To avoid this, we always encourage our clients to provide us with copies of their passport, before booking and securing the gorilla permits. The age limit for trekking chimpanzees in Uganda is 12 years old and children 10 years and older are allowed to trek golden monkeys in Rwanda as long as they are accompanied by an adult. Children under 15 years are allowed to Dian Fossey’s tomb – although the latter hike is a stiff one, so we do not recommend that either to children under 12-13 years.

All provide Rwanda Eco Company and Safaris with your passport copies so that they can advise you on the issue of the age limit to avoid any form embarrassment of refusal to after pounding hug sum of money.  Our professionals at reservation office will always advise you on the possible solution on what to do. Children being underage does not stop you from coming along with them for your gorilla trekking, as you engage in the trek, we can get them busy through variety of activities that shoot them, nannies are also available to look after them. They can as well engage on nature walk around, or community visit to keep them busy as they wait for you.
