This 1 Day Trip takes you to the Volcanoes National Park, the favorite destination for gorilla trekking in Africa. This is the shortest trip leading you to the bamboo forests of the Virunga to see the endangered mountain gorillas in their natural home.
At 4.30 PM, a guide will pick you up from the hotel in Kigali. Drive to Musanze (former Ruhengeri) in Northern Rwanda. The 3 hour journey passes through magnificent views of the hilly countryside which give Rwanda its stature as “a country of a thousand hills”.
You will report at the Park headquarters for briefing about the activity of the day and later be allocated to a habituated gorilla family that you will be tracking. Guided by a ranger guide, start the trek into the forest to see the mountain gorillas. This activity is the most unforgettable experience of a lifetime.
After the trek, you may decide to head to Kigali to relax at the preferred lodge or visit the local projects, go on walks in villages surrounding the park and interact with local people.
