Rwanda Gorilla Trekking Tips

  • Mountain gorillas live at high altitude and this may cause difficulties for some visitors. You should pace yourself and drink plenty of water.
  • Warm clothing is advised as the trekking is done at 1,700 m above sea level so is generally quite cold.
  • Recommended clothing is long trousers and long-sleeved sweaters or shirts while in the forest to avoid insect stings.
  • Waterproof hiking boots are essential and rain gear useful.
  • Carry your day pack with lunch or some snacks. Eating, drinking and smoking near the gorillas is forbidden – designated time and place will be communicated.
  • Photography is permitted, although you must not use flash
  • Porters are available to help you carry your day pack for a small charge.


Day 1: Rwanda Gorilla Trekking in Volcanoes National Park

Today, we shall leave Kigali very early in the morning at 5:00 am to take an early drive to Volcanoes National Park in Ruhengeri, Northwest of Rwanda. The park is located in a distance of 116km (2 Hours of Driving) and by 7:00 am, we shall already be at the park headquarters waiting to be briefed and allocated specific gorilla groups to track on the day.

At about 8:00 am, you will be transferred to the starting point of the trek and then hike into the forest to search for the mountain gorillas. The process of gorilla trekking usually lasts for 30 minutes – 6 hours until you meet these enchanting primates of the wild. Your guides will allow you to be with the mountain gorillas for a maximum of an hour and then descend back to the lodge. In the evening, you may go for cultural encounters and interactions with the local people.


Day 2: Rwanda Cultural tour Experience, Depart to Kigali

This is the day for your cultural tour experience in Rwanda. Early in the morning, you wake up to a tasty breakfast and start your Rwanda cultural tour with a drive to the Iby’wachu cultural village for a detailed account of the Kinyarwanda traditions and culture dating from the pre-colonial era. This is the most enticing of this tour as you get to participate in real life with the people here having the opportunity to taste the local foods and locally brewed wines.
