1 Day Gorilla Trek Rwanda Full Itinerary

Day 1: Full Day Itinerary Description

This 1 Day Gorilla Trek Rwanda is crafted to suit visitors who are already in Rwanda at the time of going for the trek since it requires an early pickup from your residence and a late drop-off from the trekking experience.

As early as 4:30 am, you will have breakfast and start off the trip taking a 2 hours picturesque journey to the Volcanoes national park Ruhengeri. This park is home to Rwanda’s mountain gorillas.

On arrival at the park headquarters, you will register with the authority and head on to attend an insightful briefing about gorilla trekking by the park wardens.  At about 8:30 am, the gorilla trek will begin as you hike into the forest led by an experienced armed ranger guide.

You will be randomly assigned to a gorilla group to trek for the day. However, should you have an interest in a specific gorilla family? you can inform us at the time of booking so that we can inform the park wardens to plan and reserve for you.

The gorilla trek usually takes between 1 – 6 hours, sometimes up to 8 hours depending on the current movements and previous location of the gorillas.

After having a fun time with the gorillas, your driver will transfer you back to Kigali for drop off at your hotel or at the airport for a scheduled flight back home.
