Volcanoes National Park

Set high on the jungle-covered slopes of the volcanic Virunga Mountains (a chain of volcanoes with altitudinal ranges of 3500m-4507m) the rare Mountain Gorillas reside at these high altitudes. The Parc National des Volcans is best known as a sanctuary for the mountain gorillas and visitors can trek to visit these gentle giants in their misty mountain home.

Rwanda Gorilla Trekking

In order to minimize behavioural disturbances to the gorillas, only 8 people are allowed to visit each of the families and for a period not exceeding 1 hour. This means that only 80 people are allowed in the park daily. The limits serve to protect gorillas from the risk of exposure to human-borne diseases. It is an extraordinary feeling sitting in the dense rain forest knowing you are with a few of the last remaining mountain gorillas.

There are around 1000 mountain gorillas remaining in their natural habitat. These habitats are in Rwanda, Uganda and Congo. Presently, Rwanda not only enjoys the best security in the region but also has the easiest access routes for visiting the mountain gorillas. There are currently ten habituated gorilla families which can be visited and two Golden Monkey Families (Kabatwa & Musonga).
