GORILLA TREKKING AREAS & PERMIT ALLOCATIONS On our scheduled departures, we typically buy permits for Buhoma & Ruhija, which are accessible from Buhoma area. One of the Buhoma families and the Ruhija families require a road transfer to the start point. This does not deviate from the enjoyment of the trek (and could be considered as enhancing your trip as you are seeing a different part of the region). Furthermore, your Permit may be organised for day 3, or 4, of your safari. It will depend on availability at the time of purchase.
