Tips on Gorilla Tracking by UWA

  • Always maintain your voice low or remain quiet as you track. You will hear and view the gorillas if you follow that.
  • Don’t move less than 7m or 21 feet close to the gorillas
  • Don’t wave or even point at the gorillas as they may consider that a threat.
  • If approached by the giant gorillas, slowly move back from them to maintain a 5m separation.
  • Never use flashes when taking photos. This may greatly threaten the gorillas.
  • The maximum time visitors are allowed to spend with the gorillas is one hour to limit their disturbance.
  • A maximum number of 8 people may visit a group of habituated gorillas in a day to limit their behaviour disturbance and risk to exposure to human borne diseases.
