Day 3: Gorilla Trekking
Ruhengeri - Volcanoes National Park - Kigali. It’s an early start this morning for our journey to Volcanoes National Park where we join a gorilla tracking group. After a briefing by the trackers we head into the forest in search of mountain gorillas - the largest living primate on earth. As we weave through the forest’s lush vegetation, the experienced trackers will teach you about how they track them and the behavioural habits of these gentle giants. Once the gorillas have been found we’ll be able to spend an hour with them before it will be time to leave. Coming face to face with a giant silverback is one of the greatest wildlife experiences on earth! After an incredible gorilla encounter we head back to the park’s HQ. There will be the opportunity to enjoy a meal before driving back to Kigali for the evening. Overnight - Kigali (B)
