The 3-days Gorilla Trekking Safari is made up of a visit to the Karisoke Tomb of the late famous Primatologist & researcher about Mountain Gorillas – DR Dian Fossey (R.I.P) and Gorilla trekking in the Volcanoes national park of Rwanda. Golden Monkeys trekking is an optional activity but also very interesting.

This 3 days gorilla trekking safari package starts and ends in Kigali; after an adventurous trek in the Virunga mountains, you will transfer back to Kigali for your flight.

This 3 days gorilla trekking safari will combine great Rwanda safari highlights of gorilla trekking and a glimpse into the Rwandan cultural by visiting the Iby’Iwacu cultural village. The mountain gorillas live deep in the jungles of the Virunga volcanoes shared between Uganda, Rwanda, and Congo. This 3 days gorilla trekking safari tour takes you to the volcanoes national park which offers the perfect inhabitant for mountain gorillas found in northern Rwanda on the border with Uganda. The journey to this park takes you through the communities where you enjoy the scenery of ‘the thousand hills’. Gorilla trekking is a special intimate experience that is hard to relay to someone who has never come close to the gorillas. You get to spend up to one hour with gorillas, watching them feed the young ones and comb their hair. It is unforgettable!
