1 Day Rwanda Gorilla Trek

Observe mountain gorillas in their natural habitat at Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda, on a 1-day Rwanda Gorilla trek accompanied by an expert safari guide. This 1-day Rwanda Gorilla trek is an ideal safari if you only have a day to spend in Rwanda. Are you in search of an unforgettable wildlife excursion that won’t drain your cash account? We are the best option for a day of gorilla trekking between Kigali and Volcanoes National Park.
This 1-day Rwanda gorilla trekking excursion is perfect for guests on brief business vacations in Rwanda. Your guide will come and get you from your hotel or at the airport at 4:30 in the morning, or 4 in the morning if your aircraft lands there. At 7 in the morning, you will be briefed and introduced to the different gorilla families in the Volcanoes National Park.  Your guide will then drive you two hours north to the headquarters of Volcanoes National Park.

Only those staying in Kigali or Rwanda for a short period, such as conference attendees, will be able to participate in the 1-day Rwanda gorilla tracking. Keep in mind that the road is typically two hours and thirty minutes long, therefore the recommended departure time for the one-day Rwanda gorilla trek is between 4 and 4:30 in the morning.
During the rainy season, you should allow an additional half an hour for travel time because the road may be partially obscured by fog, as in the Shyorongi districts.


As your guide takes care of the registration and finds a gorilla family that fits you, you can relax with a Rwanda coffee or cappuccino upon arrival at Volcanoes National Park.
After you’ve had your fill of coffee, it’s time to join the group. Your guide will introduce you to other members who are also following the same trail. The typical duration of the briefing is thirty minutes to an hour.
Upon reaching the park headquarters, you will get the opportunity to meet with your gorilla trekking guide for a briefing. Following that, you will be driven to the forest trailhead, where your climb will commence. You may enjoy the sights and sounds of the verdant rainforest as you make your way to visit the gorillas.
Because gorilla families are always on the move, visitors should expect a 2 to 8-hour trek in the park, including the one hour spent in the company of the Mountain Gorillas. Based on your fitness level and personal preference, we will assist you in selecting a short, medium, or long walk if you would want to view the gorillas early. Once you’ve made your selection for a family of gorillas, park rangers will endeavor to meet your requests.
After your one hour with the gorillas, you will be escorted out of the park to be greeted by your driver, who will then return you to Kigali for your departure.
