Description de l'activité

Share the canopy with the world's most iconic primate on this gorilla trekking adventure in Rwanda.

Follow in the footsteps of conservation pioneers like Diane Fossey on this wildlife experience in Volcanoes National Park. Home to the last remaining population of mountain gorillas, Africa’s oldest protected park is estimated to be home to at least 600 individuals – offering you the chance to explore their totally wild habitat and share a precious moment in the presence of a true King of the Jungle – the beringei beringei silverback…

Location
This activity takes place in Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park near Kinigi. This tour includes accommodation or airport transfers from Kigali to Ruhengeri.

Activity
An adventure where getting there is half the fun, this three-day gorilla safari travels from Rwanda’s capital city into the heart of Volcanoes National Park – tracking gorillas with an experienced local guide. Home to an estimated 600 mountain gorillas, the 160 km2 National Park supports a large number of plants and animals unique to northern Rwanda– including golden monkeys, buffaloes, black-fronted duiker, hyenas then bushbucks.

Day 1: Leave Kigali and travel through the countryside to the ancient rainforests of the Bwindi Volcanoes National Park in the Virunga Mountains – arriving at your picturesque jungle lodge on the edge of the forest in the late afternoon. 

Day 2: Begin your gorilla trek in the early morning – setting off through the mist-shrouded lowland forest with a team of experienced trackers. The search for the majestic mountain gorilla goes through the thick untamed rainforest, where you’ll be scrambling over mossy rocks and through deep undergrowth. Following the signs of a troop, tread lightly as you observe gorillas in their natural habitat – spending up to an hour witnessing their interactions from a safe and respectful distance. Heading back to the camp, your guide will help you spot and identify other flora & fauna endemic to the Virunga conservation area 

Day 3: Departing early in the morning, start your journey back to Kigali enjoying a guided tour of the capital city. Expect to arrive back in the city in the early evening.
