Embarking on a gorilla tracking adventure in Rwanda is a dream for many, but it’s essential to be well-prepared with the knowledge required to ensure a seamless and memorable experience. Trek Africa Expeditions is committed to providing you with all the necessary information about gorilla tracking in Rwanda to help you plan your journey without any hiccups.
Volcanoes National Park takes center stage as the primary destination for gorilla tracking in Rwanda. It offers a trekking experience that’s relatively more manageable compared to its neighboring country, Uganda. This remarkable park is nestled beneath the five imposing volcanoes: Muhavura, Gahinga, Karisimbi, Sabyinyo, and Bisoke. The park’s vegetation spans from lush tropical rainforests to the bamboo zone, with altitudes reaching heights that gorillas can comfortably inhabit.
However, considering the elevated peaks of these volcanoes, such as Bisoke, soaring at 4,507 meters above sea level, you’ll find heath and moorland at these heights. These zones, while unique, do not provide an ideal habitat for gorillas. As a result, the gorillas tend to stay at lower altitudes within the park.
