Day Gorilla Trek. Travel time +2hrs
At 4:30 am our safari driver guide will pick you up and drive off to the park for starting your 1 day Gorilla trekking in Rwanda. It’s a 2 hour long drive to get to the Volcanoes National Park in Ruhengeri, Musanze province which is a habitat to the endangered Mountain gorillas. You can take visually attractive pictures from the different stopovers along the journey and also get to have a cup of coffee at one of the local restaurant around. At exactly 7.30 am, we move to the park’s headquarters in Kinigi Village where you are briefed by the ranger about the rules and regulations governing Gorilla tracking before you head off to the jungle. The trek can last from an hour to six hours depending on the gorilla movement, but for your case since you will be having a flight on the same day, we will recommend a nearby family easy to trek though the trek is strenuous but much rewarding at the end. You will be given an hour with the gorilla to take as many pictures of your choice and later return to head park headquarters, and drive back to the airport for your flight with an enroute lunch along the way in ones of the local restaurants.
Will I be able to see the gorilla in that short time in a day?
Most of our clients ask us this question about their worry of not seeing the gorillas, the answer is a YES. You will be able to spot these gentle mammals in their large family led by a dominant silver back during your 1 Day Gorilla Trekking in Rwanda.
Normal gorilla trekking starts at 8.30 am and the trek can last from 4 – 6 hours, however for this case, our reservation team will notify the park official about your condition and you can be included on a group trekking the Susa family so as you can trek within a short period so as able to enjoy a rewarding experience and later catch up with your flight.
