3 Days Gorilla Safari Volcanoes National park

On arrival pick up from the airport of your hotel and proceed to Musanze (116km) which will generally take around two hours. This is the closest town to the Volcanoes National park where the mountain gorilla resides.  On your way you will experience spectacular views and activities of the local residents.

Volcanoes National Park is where the mountain gorillas reside. The oldest of these Volcanoes, Sabyinyo rises 3640 meters towering directly over the town Musanze. The volcanoes on the Rwanda side are extinct with their craters being filled with lakes however nearby volcanoes in the Congo also in this chain of volcanoes have been the site of recent eruptions and lava flows.

Dinner and Overnight at Lodge.

Day 2: Gorilla Trekking
On this day you will proceed for gorilla trekking. You will head to the Kinigi ranger station by 7am, where you will be allocated guides and briefed before heading into the forest. We will track one of the seven habituated gorilla groups in Rwanda. Habituation of a gorilla group takes a minimum of two years, with daily visits to allow the gorilla group to tolerate human presence. It is only when the gorillas are completely comfortable with human presence that tourists are allowed to share the daily hour of contact with them.

The walk to find the gorillas may be as short as two hours, but it will generally take 2-4 hours to find them as their territory can range up to 40km. The park rangers and guides will clear the way and assist you through the forest. Once the gorilla group is located you will spend an hour with them as they feed, rest and play.  

Dinner and Overnight at Lodge.
