  5. 3 Days Gorilla Tracking

Safari Overview

This 3-day Gorilla Tracking tour is the quickest way to visit the rare and endangered mountain gorillas in Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda. Your journey starts in Kigali, where you will be driven north to the Virunga Mountain range and Volcanoes National Park. In this package we take care of all ground transfers and offer accommodation for all budgets to make this a hassle-free and unforgettable experience for you.

Day 1: Transfer from Kigali to Volcanoes NP

A representative of your lodge will pick you up from Kigali today and take you on a scenic drive to the Virunga Mountain range, home of the Mountain Gorilla. Rwanda is known as the land of a thousand hills, and on this drive you will soon see why. On the way to your lodge in Volcanoes National Park you will be passing over beautiful rolling green hills as far as your eye can see. 

Should you need an overnight in Kigali on your arrival please let us know and we will add a night at a hotel in the capital at an additional cost. 

Accommodation Options; Mountain Gorilla View Lodge

Day 2: Gorilla Tracking

Encountering the rare and endangered mountain gorillas is an experience of a lifetime.

In the company of an experienced park ranger you will be tracking the whereabouts of one of the habituated family groups who live in the park and can tolerate the presence of humans for a brief period every day. 

Your gorilla tracking experience will be an exciting, yet challenging, journey along forested (sometimes muddy and slippery) slopes, tangled vines, thick vegetation and bamboo forests before you reach the territory of these gentle giants. 

Accommodation Options; Mountain Gorilla View Lodge

Day 3: Transfer back to Kigali

Enjoy your last morning in the rainforest today before a representative of the lodge drives you back to Kigali for your departure flight. Please make sure your international flight departure is after 3 pm. For flights departing before 3 pm we will arrange a night in Kigali for you at an additional cost.
