3 Days Volcanoes Gorillas & Golden Monkey Trekking Safari

Mountain gorillas and golden monkeys are amazing primate species and they endemic to only the Virunga Region and Albertine Rift. With our 3 days Rwanda gorillas & golden monkeys, you have a lifetime opportunity to get up close & personal with both apes right in their natural habitat.

This short primate adventure takes you to Volcanoes National Park. This is a 160sq.kms bamboo and rainforest protected area, established in 1925 and both the golden monkeys, mountain gorillas plus other wildlife all reside in this park.

Trip details

Day 1: Enjoy Kigali city tour & visit Volcanoes National Park

Early breakfast at the hotel, after, a warm welcome from our representative and start Kigali city expedition. The 2 hours’ Kigali city expedition includes a tour to Kigali or Gisozi genocide site, craft market, museum and others. Alternatively, you may also drive straight to Volcanoes National Park after breakfast and check in at the lodge for overnight stay.

Day 2: Volcanoes N/P mountain gorilla trekking

Breakfast served to you early, after, connect to Kinigi to be briefed about gorilla trekking rules and regulations by Volcanoes National Park official. A gorilla trek begins at 8:00am with one of the park guides, expecting to spend at least 2-6 hours in the forest while searching for a family of endangered mountain gorillas assigned to you. In Volcanoes N/Park Rwanda, there are 12 gorilla families that guests can visit daily and only one is assigned each day to every group of 8 trekkers.

Maximum time allowed for you to stay with a group of these apes is strictly one hour and you get back to the lodge. In the evening, you may have a cultural walk with local guide to Iby’Iwacu village.

Day 3: Golden monkey tracking experience Rwanda & depart

Following a hefty breakfast, you will have briefing on guidelines for golden monkey tracking. The park guide assigned to you will lead your group into the jungles of Volcanoes National Park to look for golden monkeys and this is expected to go for 2-5 hours. Unlike mountain gorillas, golden monkeys can be spotted jumping from one tree to the other and during photo taking, you must be keen enough. After great time in the wild with golden monkeys, return to the lodge for lunch and later, drive back to Kigali.
