This tracking tour to Volcanoes National Park takes you to a home of gorillas and other primates. The park altitude ranges from 2400 to 4,507 kilometers. The Volcanoes National Park (French: Parc National des Volcans) is dominated by the setting off volcanoes after which it is named.
The park is also best known to the outside world as the place where for almost 20 years the American primatologist Dian Fossey undertook her pioneering studies of Mountain gorilla behavior. Day hikes to see the gorilla families can be strenuous on tracks climbing through the forest, and time is very limited once contact is made with the gorilla families. It is a rare and memorable experience to visit these giant cousins of man.
The accommodation is ideally positioned for those who want to watch animals in their habitat, specifically the endangered Rwanda Mountain Gorillas that still roam these areas. Share in the cuisine of Rwanda, which is served with the hospitality to which we all return to African countries. You can take a walk, learn more about the gorillas, and absorb the gorgeous surrounding landscape.
You will have breakfast and go to ORTPN offices with your packed lunch for the briefing. After that, you will set off in the forest for gorilla tracking. A thrilling trek through the refined foothills of the Virungas provides inspiring views in all directions. Then the trail enters the national park, engrossing trekkers in the strange closeness of the rainforest, alive with the calls of colorful birds and chattering of the rare golden monkey, and besieged with fresh spoor of the mountains’ elusive populations of buffalo and elephant.
Through gaps in the forest canopy, the marvelous peaks are sighted, easily easy to get to and among the uppermost in Africa, indicating an ascent. Gorilla tracking is quite strenuous but a worthwhile on the encounter of these gentle giants. The enthusiasm of your coming across with these apes will wipe away your intricacy of the strenuous trek.
Spend time watching the gorillas, watch the adults feeding their young ones, brushing and resting as the youngsters play from vines in a pleasurably playful display. After that, you will drive back to the hotel for lunch, drive again to Kigali, and you will be transferred to the airport for your flight.
The safari will take place in Ruhengeri, Rwanda.
You will be served with delicious breakfast and packed lunch on your second day.
Please book your flights to arrive at Kigali International Airport (KGL). Transfer from and to the airport is included. Travel Explore Africa Safaris will pick you up from the airport.
