4- Days Remarkable Rwanda Tour. Gorillas & Golden Monkeys Trekking. - 4 Days

Nothing on earth compares with the experience of meeting a family of mountain gorillas at home in their forest. Volcanoes National Park is the Rwandan section of the great volcanic massif called the Virunga Mountains that straddles the borders of Rwanda, Uganda and the DRC. The massif covers a huge area of over 8,000km², encompassing six active and three extinct volcanoes.

Gorillas, of course, pay no heed to borders and are known to cross between the countries, although most habituated groups are to be found in Volcanoes National Park. The massif is home to around half of the world’s precious mountain gorillas – some 400 of them – making Rwanda probably the best place in Africa for a tracking safari.


Gorilla trekking in Rwanda is often described as a life changing travel experience and with good reason. With only an estimated 1000 mountain gorillas left in the world, to observe these gentle giants in their natural habitat ranks among the most epic wildlife holidays in the world. Observe endangered mountain gorillas and golden monkeys on treks through Volcanoes National Park. This 4 day gorilla safari in Rwanda will start and end in Kigali Rwanda’s capital.
