One day Rwanda Gorilla Trek Itinerary
Pick up from your hotel or place of residence in Kigali or Gisenyi at 04:30am and transfer to the park headquarters in Kinigi. The drive from Kigali takes approximately 2 hours, while from Gisenyi, the drive is approximately 90 minutes. Once you arrive at the park headquarters, you will be allocated to groups of 8 persons maximum and assigned to a gorilla group in your ability to track. You will be briefed about the activity before entering the jungle to search for the mountain gorillas. You must carry enough drinking water, and a walking stick is of great help. Porters are available for hire from US$10. A porter will carry your day park and camera gear, and he will assist you during the hike by giving you a hand when you are stuck in vegetation, mud or rocks.
Once you meet the gorillas in the jungle, you will be allowed to stay with them for a maximum of 60 minutes, take photos and videos but avoid using flash cameras because, flash disorganizes the gorillas. Later descend to the base, embark on our vehicle and go for lunch at Muhabura hotel or Mountain Gorilla View Lodge before setting off to your next destination, can be Kigal or Gisenyi.
