Enjoy gorilla trekking at its finest on a tour that starts with a cultural orientation in Kigali, Rwanda before heading to Parc National des Volcans to begin the safari experience. From your mountain lodge, you will have two opportunities to track the seven gorilla groups in Rwanda, with additional options to climb a volcano and view the endangered Golden Monkeys. Drive on to Uganda for night in a lodge known for optimal bird-watching, followed by a drive through the ‘Switzerland of Uganda’ to another lodge, from which you will trek once more with the gorillas in an entirely new environment.

For most visitors, the premier reason to visit Rwanda and Uganda is to track the regal mountain gorilla in its natural habitat; this program allows a complete gorilla trekking experience along with opportunities to learn more about the cultural heritage of both countries. Begin your journey in Kigali, Rwanda, with a visit to a museum that offers background and insight into Rwanda’s complicated recent history. Continue by road to Parc National des Volcans, a brief but stunning drive through some of Rwanda’s most beautiful scenery. While staying at Volcanoes Virunga Lodge, you will have two opportunities to track the seven gorilla groups in Rwanda; additional activity options include climbing a volcano to visit Dian Fossey’s grave or viewing the endangered Golden Monkeys. The next day, drive to Uganda and for a night at Volcanoes Mount Gahinga Lodge. Whether you choose to simply enjoy the scenery or go on a nature walk, remember that Uganda is known across the globe as a superb birding destination, so keep your eyes and ears open! Next drive through the area known as the “Switzerland of Uganda” to Volcanoes Bwindi Lodge for two nights. Take another opportunity to trek with gorillas in an entirely new environment, and we promise you will be astounded by how different the terrain and the gorillas are here!
