Plan Your Trip: Rwanda Tours, Gorilla Trekking Safaris, and Travel Information
Rwanda is a must-visit destination for adventurous travelers. The big draw for this tiny country are the wild mountain gorillas inhabiting the Virunga Mountains. Head to Volcanoes National Park (just a few hours’ drive from the Kigali airport) and go gorilla trekking through the lush, forested mountains. The expedition hearkens back to the adventures of a bygone era, as local guides hack a path through the remote jungle and expertly track the movements of these majestic creatures. Once you successfully track a gorilla family, you’ll be able to observe their all-too-human behavior from just a few feet away.
With such a compact land area, Rwanda offers an “in-and-out” gorilla trekking experience with minimal travel time. Rwanda can easily be combined with Uganda, Kenya, or Tanzania for an East Africa safari that offers a bit of everything.
