About
Volcanoes National Park is situated about two hours from Kigali city, Rwanda’s capital. The drive to the park is scenic – viewing the beautiful mountains and green forests, which gave Rwanda its name as the “land of a thousand hills.” Gorilla trekking can take minutes or hours depending on where the gorillas decide to rest from the previous day. When you finally meet the mountain gorillas, you will have a magical chance to see them feeding and crushing through the underbrush, babies running around and full-grown gorillas inching toward observers loudly declaring their importance.

What to expect
  • The One-day gorilla trekking trip in Rwanda is best done when a visitor is already in Rwanda since it requires very early pick up and late drop off. Set off at 4:30 am, for a 2 hours picturesque drive to Volcanoes national park found in Musanze province, habitat to endangered mountain gorillas. On arrival, enjoy your breakfast and proceed to the park headquarters at Kinigi for the briefing by the park warden.  At 8:30 am the tour guide will transfer you to the starting point of the gorilla trek. The gorilla groups are allocated to the guests at random at the park headquarters. However, our experienced guides have over time built a strong relationship with the park wardens. They normally talk to them before time and express the clients’ interests in specific gorilla groups. They normally get a positive response over this. The trek may last from 1-8 hours depending on the movements of the gentle giants. On return, your driver will transfer you back to Kigali for drop off at your hotel or at the airport for a scheduled flight back home.  End of Tour

Just returned from one day overnight Gorilla trek in Volcano Mountains Rwanda! It is truly amazing. It is expensive but please know that the money goes into protecting these amazing animals and to increase their habitat which sadly, is decreasing! I highly suggest using Uber Luxe safari. They are true professionals and you will not be disappointed! It really is a trip of a lifetime and if you will not regret it!
