Make the most out of your trek
A Rwanda gorilla safari is available as a stand-alone experience and we have 4-day trekking itineraries for those who are short on time. These tours fly in and out of the capital Kigali and provide everything you need for your gorilla trekking experience in the Volcanoes National Park – includinga 90% success rate at finding the gentle giants in their rainforest home.
But despite its small size, Rwanda is a surprisingly diverse country and home to several national parks and wildlife reserves. A gorilla safari can be combined with a chimpanzee tracking experience in the wonderful Nyungwe Forest, for example, or perhaps a couple of nights by magical Lake Kivuor in Akagera National Park, Rwanda’s up-and-coming savannah reserve.
Thanks to its international airport and well-practiced travel connections, Rwanda can easily be included in a larger African itinerary. You can double your gorilla experience by popping over the border into Uganda to trek for the gorillas of the legendary Bwindi Forest or expand your wildlife experience in a different direction by combining Rwanda with safari giant Tanzania and its iconic destinations such as the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater. Ask us about getting the timing right and it’s possible to see gorillas, the great wildebeest migration and the Big 5 (lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhino) on one single itinerary.
And if you’d like to combine your Rwanda gorilla safari with something a little more relaxing, then consider a tour with an Indian Ocean beach resort on the itinerary. The island of Zanzibar, home to white-sand beaches and waving palm trees as well as spice plantations and fascinating Stone Town, the island’s historical capital, works well with Rwanda and is especially popular with families and honeymooners.
