4 Days 3 Nights Parc National Des Volcans Gorilla Safari is a short three-night stay in northern Rwanda from the Rwanda Safari Gorilla Trekking 4 Days which offers you the opportunity to engage with the endangered mountain gorillas in the forests on the slopes of the Virunga volcanoes.

This 4 Days 3 Nights Parc National Des Volcans Gorilla Safari begins and ends in Kigali. Parc National des Volcans in the Virunga volcanoes is home to the Mountain Gorillas to which Dian Fossey dedicated her life.

Seeing some of the last remaining 700 mountain gorillas in the world is a fantastic experience and this safari takes you to Parc National des Volcans (PNV) in Rwanda. It offers an opportunity to track gorillas twice.

There are 4 groups of Mountain Gorillas located in the Rwandan sector of the Virunga Volcanoes. They are the Susa Group, Sabinyo Group, Group Thirteen, and Amahoro Group.

Trekking times to reach each group vary from 2 to 7 hours depending upon their movements. Most days there are several groups within two-hour treks of the car park.

During the wet season trekking times are reduced to as little as 20 minutes as the gorillas move to lower elevations to feed.

Parc National Des Volcans in Rwanda has seven habituated gorilla families and tracking most groups in the afro-montane forest usually takes only a few hours.

You can also climb a volcano, visit the remains of Dian Fossey’s grave or visit the endangered golden monkey.

Notes

* There is a minimum age of 15 years on gorilla treks
* In order to protect the gorillas the Rwandan government issues Gorilla Permits – ensuring that a limited number of tourists can track them each day. These permits are in high demand, so do book early to secure your chosen date/s.
* Tracking gorillas in Rwanda can be testing and requires a moderate to good level of fitness (though it is deemed easier than from Uganda where the trails are steeper and less accessible)
* Treks are often 2 to 3 hours each way (but can be more) and involve hiking through dense forest and traversing steep ravines and mountainsides, often in damp conditions. However, all this adventure is worthwhile for a glimpse of one of nature’s finest spectacles
