Full description

Begin your journey to meet Rwanda's mountain gorillas bright and early with a hotel pickup from Kigali where you will be greeted by your guide who will take care of you throughout the day.

Head straight to the Volcanoes National Park in Musanze Province — habitat to endangered mountain gorillas — whereupon arrival your guide will take you on a hiking tour to look for the gentle creatures.

Sit back and relax on your 2-hour drive to the park, and either grab a few more hours of shut-eye or admire the picturesque scenery. Once at the park, tuck into breakfast before heading to the park's headquarters at Kinigi for a briefing by the park warden.

Then, start your trek through the bamboo covered slopes at 8:30 AM with your expert guide and keep an eye out for the endangered gorillas on your way. Depending on where the gorillas are located, your trek could last anywhere between 1-8 hours.

Once with the gorillas, spend time getting close to them, feeding them, and meeting the entire gorilla family, including babies. The Volcanoes National Park is home to twelve gorilla families, all of which are fully habituated. The groups, or troops, consist of at least one silverback along with several females and youngsters.

Stop for a delicious lunch to gather your energy, and feel re-energized to keep walking.

Best of all, choose from either a small-group or private guided experience to make your trip special.
