About
This is perhaps one of the most breath-taking wildlife experiences on earth!!! You get so close to these awesome giant primates. You stare at each other blankly not knowing who to break the long silence first. Tracking the gorillas through the light mountain forest on the slopes of the Virunga is a magical experience. These massive primates are extremely rare, with less than 1000 living today. It's been described as the must do activity for 2019 best places to visit and we can say, it really lives to its name. Note: Gorilla permits is not included in this package( you need to buy permits beforehand) just transport

    This is perhaps one of the most breath-taking wildlife experiences on earth!!! You get so close to these awesome giant primates. You stare at each other blankly not knowing who to break the long silence first. Tracking the gorillas through the light mountain forest on the slopes of the Virunga is a magical experience. These massive primates are extremely rare, with less than 700 living today. You will get within meters of the family, and be privileged to spend an hour amongst them. The trekking may be fairly strenuous; up to six hours or longer at a relatively high altitude. We encourage for your own enjoyment to make sure that you are perfectly fit and healthy. (We’ve had people as old as 70years old do gorilla tracking so this should not be a problem; all you need is to ask your driver guide to request a shorter group for you if you cannot trek far)It is important to bring good hiking boots, long trousers, gloves for protection against stinging nettles, some snacks & sweets (for you, not the gorillas) as well as sufficient water as the rain forest gets hot and humid during the day. You will spend one hour with the gorillas, but it is an hour you will never forget

Oct 2019 • Friends
My friend and I booked a day trip from Kigali to Mgahinga Gorilla National Park and had an amazing experience with Kawira Safaris! We really wanted to see the gorillas but the price of gorilla permits in Rwanda was too high for our budgets. Ian Kinote kindly organized an option for us that we could afford where we crossed over to Uganda (where the permits are cheaper). Our driver, Mbabazi, was really amazing and arrived on time at 3am (in fact he was 10 mins early) which we really appreciated because we had a long drive ahead of us. He helped us in every aspect to cross the border, pick up our permits, and drop us off at the start of the trek. We had an absolutely amazing time interacting with the gorillas. The group we saw had 17 gorillas including 7 young ones! Then on the way home we stopped at the Diane Fossey museum and for lunch in Musanze. Overall, it was a day to remember for years to come and I would like to thank Ian Kinote for organizing it all. He was very professional with his emails and responded promptly to the questions we had. My friend and I would both recommend Ian Kinote for his great service and a fair price.
