3 Days Gorilla Safari

3 Days Rwanda gorilla trekking trip takes you to Volcanoes national park, homing nearly half of the world’s total population of the remaining mountain gorillas. It’s one of the few places in the world where visitors get to see these endangered animals in the wild. Besides these gentle giants, Volcanoes is also a home to the golden monkeys, the only place in Rwanda where one can see both the silverbacks and the golden primates. Though on this trip we are majorly tapping the mountain gorillas.

You will walk through the forest just in search of the great giants of the forest, this could take 1-8 hours depending on the luck of the trekkers. On meeting the gorilla family, have up close encounters with the beautiful giants of the jungle, an experience that is simply unforgettable for years.
The trip will again expose you to Iby’iwachu cultural center, a village that displays all the three ethnic groups of Rwanda in just one spot. Discover Rwanda.
