What is the age limit for gorilla trek

What is the age limit for gorilla trek?

The minimum years for gorilla tracking in Uganda, Rwanda and Dr Congo is 15 (Fifteen years) and above for anyone willing to see endangered mountain gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, Maghinga National Park and Volcanoes National Park and Virunga National Park. Below the age of 15 years, one is regarded as a child by all standards and will not be allowed to go on any gorilla trek in Uganda or Rwanda. This is seriously compulsory in both Uganda and Rwanda. There however, some instances where a child below 15 years may trek gorillas. That said and done, all park authorities are very serious when it comes to age limit to the extent that passport details will be requested before a gorilla permit is issued. On the day of trekking gorillas, each tourist will also be requested to produce an original passport so as to make sure that all those that will trek gorillas are of the right age.
