3-day Mountain Gorilla Safari

Rwanda, commonly known as ‘The land of a thousand hills’ is beautiful country with six volcanoes, twenty-three lakes and numerous rivers, some forming the source of the great River Nile. Volcanoes National Park (also known as Parc National des Volcans in French), in northern Rwanda is home to the world’s largest number of endangered Mountain Gorillas. The gorillas can be viewed in their natural mountain habitats through organized gorilla tours at a very close range.

Day 1 - Arrive kigali, Rwanda

As the first light of dawn breaks through the curtain of mist clinging to the summits of Karisimbi, Bisoke, Sabyniyo, Gahinga and Muhabura, we make our way into the Parc National des Volcans. Tracking the gorillas through the unique vegetation can take several hours of challenging walking in wet and muddy conditions. To see a gorilla, the trek will have been worth the hardship. Afternoon at leisure - optional excursions available from lodge (payable locally). Dinner and overnight at the lodge.
