Rwanda Gorilla Trekking Extension

Rwanda Gorilla Trekking

4 Days in Rwanda

Getting up close to a mountain gorilla family in the wild is one of the most amazing wildlife encounters that you can have on the planet. You'll head deep into the jungle on the slopes of Rwanda's Volcanoes National Park escorted by a team of expert guides and local trackers. Choose either two full days of gorilla tracking or one day with the gorillas and another day trekking to see Golden Monkeys. Both classic accommodation and luxury options are possible.
