Enjoy a short break to Rwanda, gorilla tracking in the Parc National des Volcans. This is a unique opportunity to interact with these magical primates in their natural habitat.
Many people ask about taking a short overseas trip to see wildlife and this is the one we most often recommend. Our five night trip travels to Rwanda's dense cloud forest, to track a family of mountain gorillas - an exceptional wildlife experience that definitely won't be forgotten!
There's nothing like a quick trip to an utterly different environment to lift the soul and help you relax and unwind, especially when you're within eye contact with a silverback!
The full itinerary detail is available on our website.
You should note: Depending on the availability of gorilla permits, the order of days in the Parc National des Volcans may be reversed. The price of this trip includes a contribution of US$100 per person to support a non-profit organisation set up by our local supplier in Uganda. This trust supports a variety of community and conservation activities in and around Virunga Lodge, which in turn enhance the livelihood of local communities and help to ensure the survival of the great apes. A second day gorilla permit can be arranged (optional, cost approximately US$1,500 per person).
