Embark on an unforgettable adventure with our quality and affordable 3-day Rwanda gorilla safaris. Many travelers often question the feasibility of experiencing a high-quality yet affordable 3-day gorilla tracking safari in Rwanda, and the resounding answer provided by Trek Africa Expeditions is a reassuring “yes.”
Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park stands as the refuge for the endangered mountain gorilla population, primarily dwelling in the Virunga Massif and extending to Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable National Park.
Gorilla tracking is a captivating physical activity that involves a well-coordinated effort among trackers, rangers, porters, and tourists. Together, they venture into the mountains, seeking the habitat of these magnificent creatures.
The allure of gorilla tracking in Volcanoes National Park attracts thousands of tourists annually, providing a unique opportunity to witness these primates in their natural mountainous habitat. However, to partake in this experience, tourists require a vital authorization document, namely a permit, which is priced at $1500 per person.
Upon arrival, our experienced guide from Trek Africa Expeditions will pick you up and transfer you to Volcanoes National Park, the epicenter of gorilla tracking, for an overnight stay. Rwanda, often referred to as the “land of a thousand hills,” will treat you to panoramic views as you embark on this short safari to the park.
After an early morning breakfast, you will journey to the park headquarters, commencing your adventure to track the gorillas in their natural habitat. The tracking experience is a remarkable encounter with these incredible creatures. Post-tracking, optional activities include visits to the Iby’wacu Cultural Centre or engaging in community walks around the local communities.
Following breakfast, you will return to Kinigi for an exciting golden monkey tracking experience before concluding your safari and driving back to Kigali.
Rwanda welcomes tourists throughout the year, offering an open invitation to explore its beauty. However, for an optimal experience, the best months to visit are during the dry seasons of June to August and December to February. These periods witness reduced rainfall compared to the wet months of March to May and September to November.
