Embark on the ultimate Luxury Rwanda Gorilla Fly-in Private Safari with Trek Africa Expeditions as you soar above the breathtaking landscapes of Rwanda to witness the endangered mountain gorillas in their natural habitat within the renowned Volcanoes National Park. Nestled north of Kigali, the capital marked by its historical significance post the 1994-1999 Rwanda genocide, this private safari promises an unrivaled adventure.
The relentless efforts of the Rwandan government to boost tourism have paved the way for numerous investors, leading to the construction of luxury lodges and an increase in gorilla permits. This sustainable approach aims to offer visitors a holistic and enriching experience while contributing to the preservation of the country’s natural treasures.
This unique safari can seamlessly complement your exploration of the wildebeest migration season in Kenya and Tanzania, given Rwanda’s proximity to Tanzania along its southeastern border with Akagera National Park.
Volcanoes National Park lacks a traditional airstrip for larger aircraft, but luxury lodges have designated spaces for helicopters to land. Trek Africa Expeditions, in collaboration with Akagera Aviation, ensures a seamless experience by arranging the helicopter, gorilla permits, and all other safari-related services. Our team of destination management specialists pays meticulous attention to every detail, ensuring your safari in Rwanda is a journey of a lifetime.
Akagera Aviation boasts a fleet of helicopters in various sizes, providing flexibility to cater to your specific needs. For more information and personalized assistance, contact Trek Africa Expeditions.
Rwanda gorilla permits are a crucial consideration as you plan your safari, with only an estimated 88 permits available daily. Each gorilla permit costs USD 1500 per person, allowing you to embark on a trek to witness these majestic creatures in their natural habitat. Our senior guide, Michael Great, highly recommends at least two treks, providing an opportunity for easy golden monkey tracking or leisurely relaxation at a luxurious lodge between gorilla encounters.
Travelers on our Luxury Rwanda Gorilla Fly-in Private Safari benefit from the services of a specialist private safari guide. This expert guide leads you through the rainforest of Volcanoes National Park, ensuring an enriching and safe encounter with the endangered mountain gorillas.
