Gorilla Trekking Rwanda Safari Holidays Tours Volcanoes National Park

Gorilla Trekking + Rwanda Safari Holidays & Tours - Volcanoes National Park

Rwanda is a tiny landlocked East African country, bordering Tanzania and Uganga. Known as the 'Land of a Thousand Hills' this lush green country is terraced with tea plantations and, despite its small size, it is home to a third of all Africa’s bird species. But it is gorilla trekking for which Rwanda is most famous, due to the sanctuary that the Virunga Mountains provide to severely endangered Mountain Gorillas.
 
On Rwanda safari holidays & tours you can track these magnificent primates on foot in Volcanoes National Park. You need to be relatively fit to participate in this 'once-in-a-lifetime' experience, as you will need to walk from one to four hours to find a goriilla family. You will then have an hour to observe them up close including the dominant Silverback male, the females and playful children - creating memories of a lifetime. As only a limited number of gorilla permits are issued each day, advance booking is essential. There is also the opportunity to hike to the grave of Dian Fossey, the famous primatologist who first studied the mountain gorillas.
 
If you have more time to explore Rwanda, Nyungwe Rainforest in the south is home to a host of mammals including 13 primate species and many birds, butterflies and orchids. Or if its larger game that you wish to see, head for Akagera National Park in the east. At the end of your holiday, you can relax on the shores of Lake Kivu, a magnificent Rift Valley lake in the west of the country.
 
Combine your ideas with our expertise and let us help you create a holiday of a lifetime. We offer a wide range of options at different price points, all of which can be tailor made to your needs.

More information on gorilla trekking, Rwanda safari holidays & tours to Volcanoes National Park:
 
Volcanoes National Park is the most accessible place to see Mountain gorillas, as the park is only a two-hour drive from the capital of Kigali. This park in the majestic Virunga Mountains was created with the express aim of protecting these critically endangered primates. Comprising a chain of mostly extinct volcanoes covered by rainforest, the park runs along the border with Uganda and the DRC.
 
The survival of Rwanda’s Mountain gorillas was ensured by the heroic work of Dian Fossey, a researcher who dedicated her life to these magnificent creatures and is buried at her research centre. The gorillas are located within a relatively small area where they can be tracked on foot. On gorilla trekking Rwanda safari holidays or tours, you need to be reasonably fit, as you may need to walk two to four hours each way through the dense rainforest to find them.
 
Coming face to face with a gorilla troop, presided over by the dominant Silverback male, is without doubt one of the most moving wildlife experiences of all time, and tourism directly contributes to their survival. You must be over 15 years and it’s important not to trek if you have a cold or other infectious illness, as the gorillas have little immunity to human germs. On gorilla trekking Rwanda safari holidays & tours, make sure you wear long trousers, gardening gloves to protect your hands and sturdy walking shoes, and don’t forget your camera, although we advise that you spend most of your time simply taking in this magical experience.
 
Nyungwe National Park in the far south of the country, is Africa’s largest protected mountain rainforest, and hosts one of the continent’s greatest concentrations of wild chimpanzee, as well as a dozen other noisy and acrobatic primates such as Ruwenzori colobus, Grey-cheeked mangaby and L’hotse’s monkey. For birders there are endemic regional species such as Handsome francolin and Rwenzori turaco. It’s well worth adding Nyungwe to your gorilla trekking itinerary.
 
On Rwanda’s western side, Lake Kivu is one of a string of huge freshwater lakes that lie along Africa’s Great Rift Valley. The lakeshore is bustling with activity and here you can try local delicacies, relax on the beach, visit the hot springs or take boat trips to the nearby islands. Above Lake Kivu you can visit Kibuye’s genocide memorial church, with its brightly coloured stained-glass windows which, despite a tragic history, is now a place for peaceful contemplation at the end of gorilla trekking Rwanda safari holidays & tours.
