The Rwandan Volcanoes in the morning Hours

This day trip starts from Kigali, the capital of Rwanda and departs at 5.00 AM in the morning. Our tour guide will pick you up early in the morning for a transfer to Volcanoes National Park. The park is located in Northern Rwanda – a distance of 2 hours drive from Kigali the capital of Rwanda.

By 8.00 Am – Assemble at the park headquarters and get assigned to which gorilla group to be visited.

After getting briefed and assigned, start off the hike into the jungles of Volcanoes National Park to track the endangered mountain gorillas. The time for the trek varies from 30 minutes to a full day hike to meet the gorillas. This depends on the location where the gorillas have spent the day.

Upon meeting the gorillas, you have up to one hour to watch these great apes. You can take pictures (do not use flash).

Sometimes a juvenile may walk up to you but you should keep a distance – remember human infections can also affect gorillas!
