Customized Rwanda Volcanoes National Park Safari

rwanda volcanoes nationa

The most popular destination in Rwanda, Volcanoes National Park has become synonymous with gorilla tracking safaris and no trip to the nation would be complete without exploring these rare primates.

Volcanoes National Park spans the border of Uganda, Rwanda and the DRC. The geological formation covers a massive area of more than 8,000km², including 6 active and 3 extinct volcanoes. Of course, gorillas pay no heed to borders and are recognized to cross between the nations, though most acclimatized groups are to be discovered within Volcanoes National Park.

There is hardly any adventure that can match to an encounter with rare gorillas. Watching a group of gorillas playing, sulking, pulling legs of each other, or doing things like typical human being – is truly exceptional. Gorilla tracking during your Rwanda Volcanoes National Park Safari is possibly the best activity you can do.

Rwanda is home to 10 acclimatized groups of mountain gorillas that are dispersed throughout Volcanoes National Park. Gorilla trekking could be tiresome but it’s always absolutely rewarding.

However, before you opt for gorilla tracking, a guided walk to the mountains can be ideal for acclimatisation. It even permits you spending more quality time while exploring other wildlife in the jungle, and to get a superior understanding of the general ecosystem.

 

Beside mountain gorillas many other primates have made Volcanoes National Park as their natural habitat as well. In this park it is feasible to track 2 groups of habituated golden monkeys, an entirely diverse experience to gorilla tracking.

Local people should be a part of your Volcanoes National Park safari as its primates and a trip to one of the cultural hubs to get an understanding into local life & customs isn’t just very fascinating but also helps the local communities and prevent them from occupying in illegal activities such as poaching. Two wonderful instances are the Sacola Cultural Centre and Iby’iwacu Cultural Village, both close to Kinigi.

Even without gorilla tracking, a trip to Volcanoes National Park would be interesting. There’re a range of other primates, encompassing the rare golden monkeys, forest elephants, giant forest hogs, buffalo, bushbucks, bushpigs, spottted hyenas and about 200 species of birds are worth exploring.
