4 Days Rwanda Gorilla tracking Tour with Gorilla trekking in Rwanda and Uganda

Overview of the 4 Days Rwanda Gorilla tracking Tour with Gorilla trekking in Rwanda and Uganda

The 4 Days Rwanda Gorilla Tracking Tour with gorilla trekking in Rwanda and Uganda allows you to trek gorillas twice in two different habitats. The Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda is part of the Virunga Massif that features 480 mountain gorillas that are over a half of the total world population that is standing at 880. The Volcanoes tend to present a relative short hike to the gorillas and its vegetation is not all dense like that of Bwindi. Across the border in Uganda, Bwindi supports the 400 mountain gorillas making it the single habitat with the largest concentration of mountain gorillas in the world. It presents a rugged landscape with deep valleys intercepted with steep slopes and flowing rivers and streams covered with dense vegetation that have earned it the name Impenetrable. It presents a somehow challenging adventure trek compared to the Volcanoes. This makes Gorilla trekking safaris in Uganda and Rwanda remarkable as they offer different experiences. The 4 Days Rwanda Gorilla Safari also features the boat cruise on Lake Bunyonyi the second deepest in Africa marked with 29 Islands and eventually the Kigali genocide memorial which is a living museum of what transpired in the 1994 genocide in Rwanda

Gorilla and Wildlife Safari in Rwanda

After our breakfast, start your Rwanda Gorilla tracking safari by driving to the headquarters for briefing by park officials at 8am and after enter into the jungle to search for the shy mountain endangered gorillas in Rwanda. Requirements like firm walking shoes, hut, insect repellent, sun screen, rain gears, packed lunch and bottled water are a must plus other tools that one may need once in the tropical rain forest. The Gorilla trekking Rwanda experience in Volcanoes is beyond gorilla alone. The sights of the Volcanic Mountains that stretch from Congo through Rwanda to Uganda, the verdant green vegetation that shelter their slopes, the counts of birds along with fauna like duikers and buffaloes combine to generate lasting safari memories.  The Gorilla trekking safari activity tends to last from 2 hours to 8 hours or more depending on the day’s gorilla movement. The one hour of direct encounter with the gorillas brings you closer to these ancient apes, look into their eyes and their gigantic structure which makes them most powerful of all apes. Encounter them forage and play before retreating to the starting point and embark on the transfer to Uganda. You cross through Cyanika boarder in the views of the Virunga massif before being welcomed by the magical Kigezi Highlands arriving at the lodge in the evening for relaxation, dinner and overnight.

Day 3 of the 4 Days Rwanda Gorilla tracking Tour with Gorilla trekking in Rwanda and Uganda: Do gorilla trekking in Uganda & transfer to Lake Bunyonyi for evening boat cruise and relaxation

Canoing on Lake Bunyonyi

Canoing on Lake Bunyonyi

This is a great day that will mark your re-union with your long lost cousins – the mountain gorillas in the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. You gather at the respective park headquarters for briefing in the morning at 8am where you are also allocated the respective gorilla families to track. From here, you head to the forest in the company of the armed ranger guides that will lead you up the gorillas. The walk is beyond the ordinary as it involves traversing the dense jungle whose thickness would at some points necessitate using a machete to make a path, hiking the challenging landscapes some of which are steep and slippery at times under the canopy of the mature forest which forms darkness even during the day. You are treated to the impressive bird songs and beautiful flowers through the experience. The Gorilla trekking tour tends to take 2 – 8 hours depending on the gorilla movements and one hour is availed to you to have a direct touch with the gorillas. Upon approaching gorillas, their reaction is not predictable as it can include them giving you a courteous welcome, minding less about you and charging against you. However, as a result of habituation, Mountain gorillas are always welcoming with the Silverback beating a little of his chest to demonstrate his might and also welcoming to you to the group. The young gorillas are very playful and are at times not aware of the 7m rule thus can try to draw closer to even touching on your body – save it by taking some steps away to observe the distance. You are not limited in any way to ask as many questions about gorillas and their habitats along with taking pictures so long as you have the opportunity to do so. After your one hour with the gorillas, return to the starting point and transfer to the starting point to embark on the transfer to Lake Bunyonyi driving through fascinating Kigezi Highlands which locals apply terracing method to cultivate their slopes deriving impressive scenic landscape. You arrive at Lake Bunyonyi in the afternoon for relaxation, dinner and overnight.
