This 3 Days Rwanda Gorilla Tracking Safari is a mid-range Gorilla Tracking option that leads you to explore the mountain gorillas in Volcanoes National Park. The itinerary is the same and what changes is Accommodation only. Instead of staying at Home Inn, you will stay at Lebambou Gorilla Lodge. The first day is for transferring to Volcanoes National Park, trekking gorillas on the second day and transferring to Kigali on the third day.  The mountain gorillas live deep in the jungles of the Virunga volcanoes shared between Uganda, Rwanda, and Congo.

This 3 Days Rwanda Gorilla Tracking safari will take you to the volcanoes national park which offers the perfect inhabitant for mountain gorillas found in northern Rwanda on the border with Uganda. The route to this park takes you through the communities where you enjoy the scenery of ‘the thousand hills’. Gorilla trekking is a special intimate and unforgettable experience that is hard to relay to someone who has never come close to the gorillas. You get to spend up to one hour with gorillas, after locating them with your ranger guide.

Upon your arrival, you will be welcomed by a professional guide from amazing gorilla safari who will take you for a city excursion in and around Kigali so that you are oriented about this great country with a thousand hills.
