The 1 day gorilla tour in Rwanda takes you to volcanoes national park a home to the highest population of mountain gorillas in the Virunga conservation area. Arrival, pick up, trekking and departure are all done on the same day.
Upon your arrival at 4:00am, you will be picked up by our driver guide and drive to Ruhengeri via magnificent views of the hilly countryside which give Rwanda its stature as “a country of a thousand hills”. You will stop at the Park headquarters for briefing and later be guided by a ranger guide to trek the gorillas. This activity is the most unforgettable experience of a lifetime. You will spend an hour with gorillas in the jungle and you also have high chances of meeting other animals like monkeys. In the evening, connect to the airport for a return flight.
