2-Days Gorilla Trekking Volcanoes National Park

Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda offers a unique and unforgettable experience, primarily centered around gorilla trekking.


Day 1: Transfer from Kigali to Volcanoes National Park

Start your day in Kigali, Rwanda’s capital city. Arrange for an early morning pick-up from your hotel or a designated meeting point. The journey from Kigali to Volcanoes National Park takes about 2-3 hours by road, depending on traffic conditions. Enjoy the scenic drive through beautiful Rwandan countryside, passing by picturesque landscapes and rural villages. Upon arrival at Volcanoes National Park, check-in at your lodge or accommodation. Take some time to relax and settle in, enjoying the natural surroundings and fresh mountain air. In the afternoon, you can explore the nearby area on a short nature walk or visit the local communities for cultural experiences. Spend the evening at your leisure, perhaps enjoying a delicious dinner at the lodge and preparing for the next day’s gorilla trekking adventure.

Day 2: Gorilla Trekking and Return to Kigali

Wake up early and have a hearty breakfast at your lodge. Head to the Volcanoes National Park Headquarters for a briefing on gorilla trekking rules and regulations. You’ll be assigned to a gorilla family group and a professional guide who will lead you during the trek. Embark on an incredible gorilla trekking experience, hiking through the lush rainforest in search of the mountain gorillas. The duration of the trek can vary, ranging from 1 to 4 hours, depending on the location of the gorilla family you are assigned to. Once you find the gorillas, you’ll have an unforgettable hour to observe and photograph them at a close distance. After the gorilla encounter, trek back to the park headquarters and receive your gorilla trekking certificate. Meet our driver/guide and transfer back to Kigali, bidding farewell to Volcanoes National Park. Arrive in Kigali in the late afternoon or early evening, where you can either continue your journey or spend the night in the city.
