1 Day Mount Bisoke Hiking & Volcano Climbing Safari Rwanda

Hiking Mount Bisoke in one day tour is one the most rewarding adventures in Africa that are designed for both beginners and expert hikers. The tour takes you to Rwanda’s Volcanoes national park which is located within the Virunga Conservation Area.

Mount. Bisoke is shared between Rwanda and Democratic Republic of Congo but the highest peak is found in Rwanda standing at a height of 12,175 ft. above sea level. For those interested in taking gorilla trekking adventure, you can consider a 2 days safari but this hike presents some chances of spotting mountain gorillas since these primates live on mountain Bisoke slopes, but this is not assured.
