Embark on a unique adventure as conference tourists visiting Rwanda now enjoy a 15% discount on gorilla permits. This initiative, introduced by the Rwanda Development Board, aims to incentivize conference attendees to extend their stay, either before or after the conference, to witness the awe-inspiring gorillas. As tourism stands as a significant foreign income earner for the country, this discount serves as a testament to Rwanda’s commitment to the sustainability and growth of its tourism sector.
The Rwanda Development Board consistently supports tourism activities across the country by encouraging travelers to explore its renowned national parks, including Volcanoes National Park, Nyungwe National Park, and Akagera National Park, through special discounts tailored for conference attendees.
Among Rwanda’s national parks, Volcanoes National Park stands out as one of the most visited, renowned for its iconic mountain gorilla tracking. The park is home to these endangered creatures, a unique and exclusive experience shared with only Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Strategically located at a mere 120 km from the capital city, Kigali, Volcanoes National Park is easily accessible via a well-connected tarmac road. This proximity presents an invaluable opportunity for conference travelers, allowing them to seamlessly integrate a short safari tour, such as a 2-day gorilla trekking adventure. This itinerary enables participants to leave Kigali after official engagements, spend a night near the national park, embark on a gorilla tracking experience, and return to the lodge for relaxation before concluding the trip with a return to Kigali.
Volcanoes National Park is not just a sanctuary for mountain gorillas; it also shelters the endangered golden monkeys, hosts diverse birdlife, and boasts the presence of non-active volcanoes, namely Muhavura, Gahinga, Sabyinyo, Karisimbi, and Bisoke.
Note: The safari can depart from Kigali no later than 4 pm Rwandan time.
