Rwanda Gorilla Trekking Permit Update

The Rwanda authorities at RDB (Rwanda Development Board) have made a second change to the permit fees and processes as of yesterday. Uganda, for now, is keeping permits at $500 per person, per permit. As it stands now:

(1) All permits purchased between now and 31st May for any trekking dates in 2012 will be at $500 - permits need to be purchased in full at time of confirmation.
(2) All permits purchased for trekking dates in 2013 will be at the new price of $750.
(3) Any permits purchased after 1st June 2012 will be at the new price of $750. For 2012 and 2013.
(4) Deposits will remain at 40% - $300.
(5) Top up date will remain at 1 month prior to trekking date.
(6) For any permits already secured with deposits for trekking dates in 2012, if we top them up by 31st May then the price will remain at $500. If we do not top them up by 31st May then they will increase to the new price at $750. Hence at top up date (1 month prior) amount to be paid will be $550 per permit.
(7) Any permits already secured with deposits for trekking dates in 2013 are automatically increased to the new permit price of $750. This means at top up time, amount to be paid will be $550 per permit.
