This 3 days gorilla and golden monkey tracking tour will give you two prime safari activities in Rwanda. The highlights in the volcanoes national park are gorilla tracking and golden monkey tracking. You have an opportunity to learn a bit about the Rwandan culture too. Visit a cultural village later after your gorilla experience.
Many people plan for years to be able to watch the mountain gorillas in their natural habitats. Rwanda’s Volcanoes national park is among the four parks where mountain gorillas are currently inhabiting.
This 3 days tour is suitable for bleisure travellers. These are tourists with both business and leisure motives in a destination.
This gorilla safari will bring you close to these gigantic but gentle animals that live in a communal family. The families are usually led by the dominant silverback.
In some gorilla groups, you will find more than one silverback. In these cases, it implies the other silver-backs had to submit to the alpha gorilla.
Volcanoes national park:
Volcanoes national park is about 2 hours drive from Kigali. As you travel to the home of mountain gorillas in the Virunga volcanoes, enjoy the scenery of ‘the thousand hills’. Gorilla tracking will take you in the deep jungles as you search for these massive animals. Your ranger guide in communication with the trackers who leave early morning will soon lead you to the location of the gorillas.
The park authorities let you spend up to one hour with gorillas and get within five feet of a Gorilla once you locate them. In some instances, the young gorillas may come closer to you or out of curiosity touch you. However, one should not respond because the silverback could respond violently…This will be in an attempt to protect its young one from you.
