Overview

The 2 Days Rwanda gorilla tour is an exceptional package taking you to Rwanda’s volcanoes national park home to the highest population of mountain gorillas in the Virunga Conservation Area. The tour also entails a city tour to various sites in Kigali such as the genocide memorial sites among others. The tour starts and ends in Rwanda.

On arrival, enjoy your breakfast and proceed to the park headquarters at Kinigi for the briefing by the park warden.  At 8:30 am the tour guide will transfer you to the starting point of the gorilla trek.

The gorilla groups are allocated to the guests at random at the park headquarters. However, our experienced guides have over time built a strong relationship with the park wardens. They normally talk to them before time and express the clients’ interests in specific gorilla groups. They normally get a positive response over this.

The trek may last from 1-8 hours depending on the movements of the gentle giants.
