Rwanda Gorilla Tours

Interested in Gorilla Trekking in Rwanda?

An extraordinary adventure safari

Rwanda is firmly on the map for an extraordinary adventure. Gorilla trekking in Rwanda is likely to be the highlight of your Rwanda safari. But it offers so much more: tracking chimpanzees in ancient high-altitude Nyungwe Forest, the scenic beauty of Lake Kivu and the diverse wildlife, predators and lakes of Akergera. Scenic roads wind through fertile hillsides terraced with coffee-plantations.

Mountain Gorillas in Rwanda

The rare promise of seeing some of the last wild population of mountain gorillas is the lure for most visitors. The charismatic Great Apes live in the high-altitude rainforest of the Volcanoes National Park, home to over half of the estimated population of 1000 mountain gorillas.  There are 12 habituated mountain gorilla groups here so this is one of the best places in the world for a gorilla trekking tour.


Rwanda – the Land of a Thousand Hills

A visit to see the Gorillas and other wildlife in Rwanda will be a life-changing experience. Especially if you have had the assistance of an understanding safari specialist professional who can answer your questions.

How to make it happen?

Now – more than ever – you’re looking for a life-affirming experience. To have the freedom to travel and explore far-flung destinations.

But there’s lots of information out there so you need someone to help you. To answer your questions. (When to travel? How long to spend in each area? How much to spend?)

So you need reliable help to put the programme together, book the highly sought-after permits, make sure the trip flows at the right pace. Not too fast to exhaust you, but with the perfect mix of adventure and relaxation.
