1-Day Rwanda Gorilla Tour – Volcanoes National Park Safari
The 1-day Rwanda gorilla tour is best done when a visitor spends a night in Rwanda before the day of trekking since the experience starts very early in the morning, kicking off with briefing at the park headquarters.
Set off at 4:30 am, for a 2 hours picturesque drive to Volcanoes national park found in Musanze province, habitat to endangered mountain gorillas.
On arrival, enjoy your breakfast and proceed to the park headquarters at Kinigi for the briefing by the park warden. At 8:30 am the tour guide will transfer you to the starting point of the gorilla trek.
The gorilla groups are allocated to the guests at random at the park headquarters. However, our experienced guides have over time built a strong relationship with the park wardens. They normally talk to them before time and express the clients’ interests in specific gorilla groups. They normally get a positive response over this.
The trek may last from 1-8 hours depending on the movements of the gentle giants.
On return, your driver will transfer you back to Kigali for drop off at your hotel or at the airport for a scheduled flight back home.
