3 Days Gorilla Trekking in Rwanda

Rwanda is the luxury gorilla trekking destination among the only three countries where you can see the endangered mountain gorillas (Rwanda, Uganda and the DRC). 3 days Rwanda gorilla safari is one of the best safari option one can choose when you hire a car in Rwanda to volcanoes National park in northwestern Rwanda. It is very enjoyable as it takes the trekker through one of the most beautiful tropical rain forests featured by views of the Virunga volcanoes on which the forest is located. Enjoy the hilly terrain of the area as you penetrate deeper to areas where the giant apes are roaming. We often spot other wildlife living in the forest such as baboons, black and white colobus monkeys, red tailed monkeys and various birds among other residents there. The exciting gorilla trekking experience in Rwanda is done on the second day while other activities such as the city tour can be done on the first or last day of the trip depending on arrival in Kigali.
