Rwanda Gorilla Tours allow for the discovery and exploration of Rwanda including tours to the national parks, Cultural sites and of course; Mountain Gorilla trekking in Parc Nationale Des Volcans – also known as Volcanoes / Virunga national park. Gorilla trekking in Rwanda gives you the opportunity for an up-close encounter with the highly endangered mountain gorillas. Call it a one-on-one experience with the gentle primates as you stand just 6 meters away from the magnificent mountain Gorilla, watching them and gazing into its brown eyes. Gorilla tours in Rwanda are highly recommended for those that are short on time as the connecting time from the airport in Kigali to the Gorilla trekking base in Musanze / Ruhengeri is quite short compared to Uganda’s Bwindi and Mgahinga that lie 8 hours away from Entebbe airport or Kampala city.
Since Rwanda tripled its Gorilla permit price in May 2017, there has been a tremendous increase in visitors trekking with gorillas in Bwindi and Mgahinga from Rwanda’s Kigali airport. Both parks can easily be accessed with 3 to 4 hours of driving from Kigali which presents a great opportunity for those looking for budget gorilla trekking tours.
