Rwanda 1 Night / 2 Day Gorilla Trek

The Virunga Mountains that straddle the borders of Rwanda, Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo, are home to around 480 mountain gorillas, more than half of the world’s entire population (the rest live in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest in Uganda). In Volcanoes National Park, the Rwandan part of the Virungas, ten gorilla groups are now habituated for gorilla safaris, more than anywhere else in the world!

Look into the eyes of a large silverback gorilla and he'll look back with a thinking, intelligent gaze, mindful that you're another individual. Having experienced this, we can safely say that any apprehensions or nerves you might have had during your trek will melt away the minute you see your "gorilla family".

Gorilla trekking safaris offer a magical encounter that transcends any other 'wildlife' experience we know. It's possible throughout the year though the hiking itself can be more arduous in the rainy seasons; the most popular times are during the drier months, between December and February, and from about June to mid-September.
