Day 2: Gorilla Trekking


On this 3 Days Gorilla Trekking Safari Rwanda we’ll trek in Volcanoes National Park. We’ll head to the park office for a briefing before heading to the depth of the jungle for what is a most unique wilderness experience.  Thereafter, the rangers will walk you down the narrow forest paths through thick undergrowth. Once found, the rangers will brief us through the dos and don’ts before making any contact with the mountain gorillas.


We’ll spend up to 1 hour watching the gorillas in their natural habitat. We’ll get in proximity with the gorillas as you quietly observe them play, eat, forage, groom, sleep and sometimes watch them mate. This once in a lifetime experience will give us insights of the life of these gorillas and social dynamics of the gorilla families. Gorilla watching also gives us a chance to observe the sticking similarities between the apes with humans inhabit and social norms. Watch out for the juveniles who are always excited about our presence.


After trekking, we’ll break for lunch in the forest before embarking on the hike back to the starting point.  After a long day’s trek, return to the lodge.


Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

Day 3: Return to Kigali

Have an early breakfast and then start your journey back to Kigali. If time permits, we’ll have a Kigali city tour. Thereafter, your driver will drop you off at Kigali Airport for your return flight.
