1 Day Gorilla Trek. Short Gorilla Tour to Volcanoes National Park

    • Rwanda

Rwanda is Africa’s gorilla tour destination where a 1 Day gorilla trek in Rwanda is possible. This is the shortest time possible for a person to plan for a gorilla tracking tour in Africa.

Gorillas in Rwanda are found in Volcanoes National Park which is the closest gorilla habitat to an international Airport out of all the four national parks that inhabit the world’s remaining mountain gorillas.

This implies that it is possible to leave Kigali city and visit Volcanoes National Park for gorilla trekking then return to Kigali city on the same day.

A 1 Day gorilla trek Rwanda itinerary will start from Kigali City with a very early morning pick up for a transfer drive to Volcanoes National Park.

Arrive in the park in time for briefing and have a gorilla trekking etiquette briefing. The briefing is at 8:00 am. After the guide takes you through the dos and don’ts of gorilla trekking, you will then go to the forest in search of the mountain gorillas.

When you meet the gorilla family, you then spend a maximum of 1 hour seeing the gorillas interact among themselves and enjoy the bamboo forest.

After the experience, you then trek back to the start point where you meet your driver-guide for a transfer drive back to Kigali. This trip requires an early morning departure and you may return late to Kigali.

Note: You must have a COVID 19 PCR negative result test about 24 hours before visiting Volcanoes National Park for this 1 Day gorilla tour.

Rwanda is a possible destination for a 1 Day gorilla trek and this express kind of tour is suitable for people who do not have much time for a safari or are traveling on a small budget. We also plan Uganda gorilla tracking tours and Congo gorilla safaris.
