Gorilla trekking in Rwanda

Your Rwanda tour guide will pick you up from the hotel in Kigali for the transfer. About 2 hours spent on the drive take you through Rwanda. Arriving at the park, you transfer to the park headquarters in Kinigi where you first have a briefing on the dos and don’ts of Gorilla trekking in Rwanda by the park warden. By 8:30 am, the park ranger guide will transfer you to the trekking starting point for a gorilla trek. A total of 8 tourists with a trekking permit in Rwanda which costs USD 1500 per permit are allocated, per gorilla family.

Every 8 individuals take about 2-6 hours in the jungle trekking through the bamboo forest along with armed ranger guides. However, only 1 hour (60 minutes) is spent in the presence of the mountain gorillas. The trek lasts an unpredictable time depending on the Gorilla group movements but the population in Rwanda is known to move for shorter distances and therefore make it easy to trek. After 1 hour in the presence of a gorilla family, you walk back to the park headquarters where you meet the tour guide for a transfer back to Kigali.
