Gorilla Permits:

Permits are limited based on the number of families in the park. There are four habituated families in Bwindi, with the result that only 24 permits per day are issued for Gorilla tracking. These tend to book up up quite quickly so at least three months advanced booking is required for us us to obtain permits.
