Rwanda gorillas

This Rwanda gorilla is a short tour package to trek Rwanda's mountain gorillas in Volcanoes National Park Parc National . It is a very popular gorilla express tour for visitors to Rwanda who have very short time but wish to trek the gorillas while in Rwanda. The short 1 day tour is a great safari extension to a safari in Kenya or Tanzania for a full blown African wild safari holiday experience.

The 1 day Rwanda short gorilla trek is a great tour package with prices starting from as low as US$880 considering that the price of a gorilla permit alone is EACH US$750.

Tour Day 1;

The short Rwanda gorilla express tour, starts with our driver guide picking you up from your Kigali hotel or Kigali airport. Time permitting you do a quick 2 hours Kigali city tour. After lunch your tour guide will brief you on your short gorilla safari. Afterwards the tour proceeds to Volcanoes National Park, a scenic 2.5hours drive from Kigali through sharp winding roads and steep rolling hills. We eventually arrive in Ruhengeri and check into your overnight accommodation either at Muhabura Hotel or Mountain Gorilla View Lodge.

Time permitting you may go for a quick excursion of the Musanze caves , visit the twin lakes of Bulera and Ruhondo or a local market/cultural village.

Tour Day2;

After a very early breakfast, your tour guide will transfer you from your overnight accommodation to the park headquarters in Ruhengeri. You will be briefed about gorilla trekking etiquette and will be allocated a gorilla family for trekking. For this tour package, we shall stay away from the Susa gorilla group which usually takes the whole day to trek.

When you find the gorillas, you spend one hour with them after which you return to the base of the mountains where your tour driver will be waiting. You will return at the lodge for lunch, after which you embark on a return transfer back to Kigali.

We head straight to the airport for your outbound connecting flight.
