1 Day Rwanda Express Gorilla Trek at Volcanoes National Park

It is very possible to carry out gorilla trekking in 1 day from Rwanda, something that isn’t close to possible in the other two countries (Uganda and Congo). This 1 day Rwanda gorilla trek will reward you the best encounter with mountain gorillas in Volcanoes National Park Rwanda in just a day hence, if you are able to arrive in Rwanda before 03:00hrs you will be able to track these gorillas and then grab a late flight back to your country if you don’t want to spend a night.

One day gorilla trekking tours in Rwanda are best done when a tourist is already in Kigali basin on the fact that it requires a very early pickup and a late transfer to the airport. One advantage with Rwanda is, Volcanoes National Park (where mountain gorillas are tracked from) is just a maximum of three hours away from Kigali hence, we ought to set off at exactly 04:00 am if we are to arrive on time for the 07:30 am briefing meeting at the park headquarters in Kinigi.

1 Day Rwanda Express Gorilla Trek

Since your pickup is quite early, you are recommended to carry a packed heavy breakfast meal and take from the way as you journey through the beautiful plains and hills of Rwanda or rather opt to take it on your arrival at the park headquarters as you wait for the 07:30 am meeting. Our Rwanda tour company guide should guide you best on this.

After this meeting, we shall then be allocated into groups with armed rangers and start of our quest for mountain gorillas in the jungles of Volcanoes National Park, an experience that should last for 2 – 8 hours depending on the movements of gorillas inclusive of a full hour encounter with these primates.

After meeting these gentle giants, you shall then return to the park headquarters for your respective gorilla tracking certificates, drive off to Kigali City for a brief city tour with lunch en route if time allows and later on transfer you to the airport for your departure to mark the end of your 1 day Rwanda safari.
