Gorilla habituation

Gorilla habituation is a jungle based activity that gives you four hours face to face with the mountain gorillas in order to make sure that these mountain gorillas get used to humans. The activity involves different groups of people starting with only four vistors each to the trackers and the rangers..

Habituation takes about 2 – 3 years for a gorilla family to be fully or completely habituated and a gorilla habituation permit goes for only 1500USD.
