Rwanda Gorilla Safaris Tour
Rwanda is also known as the land of the “gorillas in the mist” and the main tourist attraction is the mountain gorillas that are mainly found in the Volcanoes National Park, the only Gorilla Trekking Safaris tour destination in Rwanda.
The giant but friendly primates were the subjects of the late Diane Posey, who dedicated her life to primate protection and conservation. His detailed work is best seen in the internationally acclaimed film Gorilla in the Mist, filmed in Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park.

Volcanoes National Park
Mountain gorillas spend most of their time in the Hagenia forest, and during the rainy season when new bamboo shoots grow, the gorillas spend more time foraging in the bamboo forest (at high altitudes).
Climb into the natural habitats of bamboo forests and Hagenia forests for fantastic views. PNV was founded long ago by Dian Fossey (deceased 26 December 1985) who conducted research on mountain gorillas for 18 years at the Karisoke Research Centre.
Because of the altitude, it is very cold, especially in the evening. Gorilla Trekking Safaris in Rwanda are possible all year round.

Access to the area starts from the village of Ruhengeri, about an hour and a half from Kigali, and continues to Kinigi (14 km from Ruhengeri), where the park headquarters is located. The area is well protected, so well-trained, motivated, friendly, and satisfying rangers are ready to guide you through your pleasant journey.
This is a great place to see mountain gorillas on Rwanda Gorilla Trekking Tours and generally offers great photo opportunities. Gorilla Trekking Safaris in Rwanda is less difficult than in the impenetrable Bwindi National Park, but the altitude can be a challenge for some visitors, as the gorillas tend to climb higher in the dry season. Good posture is also recommended here.
