Mountain Gorilla Filming

Filming mountain gorillas is possible as long as you have the required paper work. We can assist you in processing filming permits and contract from Uganda Wildlife Authority a body in charge of all National Park in Uganda.

There logistical requirements involved if you want to film mountain gorillas. You will be required to pay USD4000.00 to film gorillas for one hour per day. On top of this, you are required to pay for gorilla permits per person for a specific date. This means that if you have a crew composed of about five people, you will be required to pay for five gorilla permits on top of the USD4000.00.

This money is paid to Uganda Wildlife Authority who will in turn process a memorandum of understanding between UWA and the filming company in order to authorize mountain gorilla filming. Once all the costs have been compiled, they will add a 5% to cater for environmental impacts on the forest.

We have been processing filming permits and contracts on behalf of our clients and all we require from you is to tell us how many days, the exact dates of filming, and the number of people on the crew and we will go ahead and process a contract to allow you film gorillas. This contract can take from five to two weeks so there is need to plan in advance to give this process ample time.

Mountain gorillas are located in Uganda, Rwanda and Uganda. In Uganda gorillas are in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and Mgahinga National Park while in Rwanda, they are found in Volcanoes National Park.

We handle all logistical and locational support ranging from scouting, processing filming permits, press accreditation, transport and accommodation.
