Gorilla Trekking

It’s been called the most transcendent wildlife experience on the continent of Africa. Join us as we trek into dense forests to observe the gentle giants in their natural habitat. Beyond just an experience, your presence on the mountain actually plays a crucial role in conservation -- 100% of your Gorilla Trekking Fees go towards the expansion of Volcanoes National Park, one of the last safe harbors for the critically endangered Mountain Gorillas. Three cultural programs, a museum tour, and our luxury property round out this exceptional itinerary. Book as an independent journey or as an extension to your WALLSabout™ Luxury Safari.

Rwanda’s capital and biggest city stretches across undulating lush hills surrounded by towering mountains, the largest of which is Mount Kigali, rising 1850 meters above sea level. Kigali is the country’s financial, commercial and cultural hub, served by an international airport and featuring a wide range of accommodation options, restaurants and points of interest, including the Kigali Genocide Centre, an atmospheric market and numerous craft shops. With its interesting architecture, busy streets, meandering boulevards, and green hillsides, Kigali is said to be one of the most attractive cities in Africa and is definitely worth a visit.

Mountain Gorilla Trekking

Bordering the Democratic Republic of Congo in Rwanda, the Volcanoes National Park is best known as a sanctuary for the region’s rare mountain gorillas. Visitors flock here to experience a face to face encounter with these intriguing creatures. The park is set high on the jungle-covered slopes of the volcanic Virunga Mountains. Highly regulated treks through the reserve allow visitors to spend an hour at a time with these incredible primates in their natural habitat. While the gorilla’s are without a doubt the main drawcard, visitors can also look forward to exploring a network of scenic hiking trails, visiting the tomb of the world-famous Dian Fossey and the Karisoke Research Centre, and enjoying a beautiful day hike to the crater lake on Mount Bisoke.

Accommodation: Amarembo Gorilla Village 

Meals: Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner
