The shortest Gorilla tracking tour in Rwanda
While in Rwanda this is the most affordable gorilla tour to volcanoes National park. people who take on this tour always save a lot on transport, accommodation and time. Where other tourists pay for 2 or 3 days for them they only pay for a day a get the same memorable experience with the Gorillas. All you have to do is to book your gorilla permit in advance and pick it the day you get to Rwanda, arrange for transport to the park for just a day and also spend a night before tracking in a place close to the park. If you spend a night in Musanze town it’s just a few kilometers to the park head quarters however, if you spend a night in Kigali, you need to leave Kigali as early as 5.00am local Rwanda time in order to be at the park headquarters of kinigi in time. Sometimes waking up earlier is hard for some guest that’s why I advise you to sleep close to the park.
The Briefing for the gorilla trackers begins ` at 7.30am -8.30am and vehicles begin transporting gorilla trackers to several gorilla trek starting points. Amusingly in Rwanda unlike Uganda, guests are allocated a gorilla family on the very day of tracking. The guests who feel physically weak are allocated the nearest groups that only require at least an hour to find then so no need to worry about your fitness. Make sure you carry enough drinking water, packed lunch & a potter to help you carry the bag that is if you feel you need one. After the trek return back to your lodge or Kigali which will mark the end of your Gorilla trek in Rwanda.
