Gorilla Trekking Safari in Rwanda

Overview

The Africa Gorilla they call it but down here in East Africa we know it as the gentle giant, the mountain gorilla. The 3 Day Gorilla Trekking Safari in Rwanda takes you deep into the Eastern African mountain forest to meet the last of the endangered mountain gorillas. This experience is tough for the faint-hearted but the rewards are something you’ll talk about for the rest of your life.

You’ll be picked from a Kigali Airport, in the capital of Rwanda then driven 106 kilometers (65 miles), about 2 hours, north west of the capital into the gorilla territory, Volcanoes National Park, where you’ll stay in a great jungle lodge setting. You’ll hail to track the mountain gorillas the next day and also experience the African jungle scenes away from modern civilization.

Highlights

  • Drive Kigali capital to Volcanoes NP (2 hours)
  • Gorilla Trekking in Rwanda’s Volcanoes NP
  • Spend 2 nights in a gorilla safari camp outside the park
