Tracking amongst the mountain Gorillas is one of the most memorable experiences in lifetime. People with a short period in Rwanda (coming for workshops, in transit, busy business) and don’t want to miss a life changing experience with the gorillas, a one day visit is organized for them.
After an early morning breakfast the journey start at 5:30am drive to Ruhengeri. You pass through magnificent views of the hilly countryside which give Rwanda the name of “a country of a thousand hills”. Stop at the national park office for briefing and guiding to the gorilla trek.
On the same day (depending on trekking time), we offer a choice of value added package from the following:
An afternoon birding in Buhanga forest, a site known for the transit of the beautiful African Pitta in May
Visit Musanze (ex Ruhengeri) Market, providing you with an opportunity to see and buy local Rwandan fabrics and to see how local markets are organized.
Go on walks in villages surrounding the park and interact with local people and experience the local food and chat with local traditional healers
Visit the twin lakes Burera and Ruhondo and marvel at the views of the Virunga mountain chain.
