Not sure if this was flagged but Virunga National Park has set some rules for gorilla treks in their famous park as of Feb 2021. 




more pertinent ones are: 


- All tourists must provide a certified negative PCR test for COVID 19 taken in the last
three days or a COVID vaccination certificate.

- A rapid COVID-19 test prior to departure for Kibumba or Mikeno Lodge will be
compulsory for all visitors and administered at Grande Barriere.

- On arrival at all locations and daily whilst they are in the park, visitors will have their
temperature taken. If they have any symptoms of COVID 19 or stomach issues, they are
requested to please inform the management.

- Visitors are asked to bring their own facemasks and hand sanitizer.
