Rwanda Mountain Gorillas Safari

itinerary

Rwanda Gorilla Safari (photo by Steve Cunliffe)Our Rwanda Mountain Gorillas Safari takes you to the Volcanoes National Park, Rwanda to enter the domain of the largest living primate on earth. Approximately 1,000 mountain gorillas survive in the wild, with around half of them resident in the Virunga Volcanoes.

Only 56 people per day are allowed to visit the Rwanda gorillas, so you will be part of a very select group. This will be a lifetime highlight for anyone lucky enough to do it - a definite bucket list item for Africa lovers!

Our mountain gorillas safari can run as a stand-alone trip, or it can be combined with the Great Migration in the Serengeti. Click here for more details.
