In the heart of East Africa, Rwanda stands as one of the remarkable countries where gorillas can be encountered, alongside Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo. If you seek the thrill of gorilla tracking and wish to immerse yourself in the beauty of this region’s wildlife, then Rwanda is your destination of choice. In Rwanda, this adventure unfolds in the captivating landscapes of Volcanoes National Park and Akagera National Park, and Trek Africa Expeditions is your premier safari operator to guide you through this awe-inspiring journey.
Volcanoes National Park is the focal point of your gorilla tracking adventure, offering a unique opportunity to witness the endangered mountain gorillas in their natural habitat. This park is home to over 300 mountain gorillas, forming 11 habituated gorilla families that welcome tourists with open arms. Let Trek Africa Expeditions be your trusted guide on this incredible journey.
Akagera National Park, located in the eastern part of Rwanda along the border with Tanzania, presents a diverse landscape. With its woodlands, swamps, low mountains, and savannah, it is a sanctuary for an array of wildlife. The southern part of the park features Lake Ihema, where hippos and crocodiles thrive.
Rwanda warmly welcomes tourists throughout the year, yet the best months to visit are often during the dry season. This season, typically occurring between June and August and from December to February, is ideal for travelers. However, it’s crucial to be aware that European summer holidays take place from June to late September, which can lead to high demand for gorilla permits and accommodations. To secure a seamless journey, advanced bookings are highly recommended.
