If you are planning a trip and will be Gorilla Trekking, it is a good idea to have a Travel Insurance policy in place before your leave your home.

This is a wonderful way to observe Gorillas in their natural habitat. These beautiful creatures are our closest living relatives.

Gorilla Trekking is professionally guided by Ranger Guides. This type of Trekking is Government approved and work together closely with the Management of the Parks in which the Gorillas live. They are dedicated to conserve these delicate, endangered rain forest habitats and protect the animals from mass tourism.
