GORILLA TREKKING SAFARI TOURS & TRIP RWANDA.
A gorilla visit can entail anything from an hour to several hours trekking through the forest, led by experienced trackers, ending with one full hour observing these incredible animals. The trek will lead you from quaint farmlands through the dense rainforests of the Parcs de Volcans .
Rwanda is considered the ‘Switzerland of Africa’ for its breathtaking mountainous landscapes. You may spot golden monkeys or see buffalo, bush duiker and a wide variety of bird life. The high point, of course, will be spending an hour with these gentle giants as they go about their daily life feeding, playing, resting and caring for their young.
One of the greatest wildlife experiences on earth.
The rest of the time can be spent on a Golden Monkey trek or simply enjoying the surrounding vistas. We also recommend a visit to the impressive and moving Genocide Museum in Kigali.
