Incredible Gorilla Trekking in Rwanda

Gorilla Trekking in Rwanda  is one of the most exciting and unique experience for adventure seekers. Rwanda is a lush, scenic landscape of majestic mountains, nowhere more so than the Virunga Volcanoes in the north-west, home to the world’s last remaining mountain gorillas.

There is no doubt, gorilla trekking in Rwanda is well-known around the world, giving an opportunity to visitors to spend time with the mountain gorillas, such a special moment of this rare encounter.

Gorilla Trekking in the Volcanoes National Park offers visitors the unique opportunity of discovering the 10 families of gorillas that live within the national park. Visitors can enjoy a cup of coffee before the trek starts and will be separated into groups of 8 depending on their physical abilities. Each group is guided by a guide and two scouts who are well trained in emergency situations. The amount of time set aside per trek is different depending on where the gorilla family is situated. Some trips may take as little as half an hour and some take the better part of the day.

Volcanoes National Park is the perfect location from which to experience one of life’s most unforgettable moments – tracking and observing the mesmerising gorillas in one of Africa’s most beautiful, evocative settings. Also home to golden monkeys, these striking primates with their bright orange fur contrasting the green rainforests of the Virunga Mountains is a photographer’s dream. The Golden Monkey can be found in very few places outside of Volcanoes National Park, and their vibrant colours, energetic demeanour, and sizeable troupes of up to 30 individuals are indeed a sight to behold.

Even without gorillas, Rwanda remains the most stunning destination in Africa. Visit an epic forest of Nyungwe to track Chimpanzees in Rwanda and also a canopy walk. Experience Nyungwe, from a dazzling new perspective. This is the only walk of its kind in East Africa, this breathtaking construction hangs 60 metres above the forest floor between giant trees and towers, revealing a stunning view of the flora and fauna.

A safari to Rwanda, not to forget offers a unique wildlife experience to encounter the Big Five mammals inside Akagera National Park. This is the perfect way of discovering Rwanda. Enjoy gorilla trekking in Rwanda, Chimpanzee trekking in Rwanda and Wildlife Safaris in Rwanda, all in one place for a full African experience.
