Each gorilla park (Bwindi, Nkuringo, Nshongi and Mgahinga in Uganda, Parc National des Volcans [PNV] in Rwanda and Virungas Gorilla Park Congo) has different numbers of permits per day (Bwindi and Ruhija 32, Nkuringo 8, Nshongi 8, and Mgahinga 8, in Uganda; in Parc National des Volcans [PNV] of Rwanda's seven Gorilla groups 56, and Virungas Gorilla Park Congo 32 respectively) but these numbers can vary seasonally and periodcally, depending on the number of gorilla groups habituated for visitors, number of gorillas available in a family (some, like in Congo, leave their own family to join another or form their own, as competition for females intensifies!)
