1 Day Rwanda Gorilla Trek


The One-day gorilla trekking tour in Rwanda is best done when a visitor is already in Rwanda since it requires very early pick up and late drop off.

Set off at 4:30 am, for a 2 hours picturesque drive to Volcanoes national park from Kigali to Musanze District, the habitat to the endangered mountain gorillas.

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.

On return, your driver will transfer you back to Kigali for drop off at your hotel or at the airport for a scheduled flight back home.
