Rwanda stands out as one of the must-visit locations on the African continent for gorilla trekking safaris. The activity is available in Northeastern Volcanoes National Park, a two to three-hour drive from the country’s capital, Kigali. One-fourth of all mountain gorillas in the world reside here. It is located at the base of the massive Virunga Mountain range, which spans Uganda, Rwanda, and the Democratic Republic of Congo. The Park opens to tourists at 7:00 am, with pre-trek briefing starting at 8:30 am. The exercise lasts for 1-8 hours, depending on how far the gorillas have migrated, with an additional hour for photography and listening to the guides’ comments.

For foreign non-residents, nationals, and residents, gorilla trekking permits in Rwanda cost 1500 USD, which includes park access, a ranger guide, and conservation fees. It does not include further pursuits, lodging, transportation, or other personal services. Along with other things, you will appreciate the rich tropical forest’s splendor. Booking at least 3 months in advance is advised in Rwanda.
