3 Day Gorilla Express Safari

Explore the captivating Parc National des Volcans, nestled in the northern region of Rwanda, where approximately 300 mountain gorillas call home. This remarkable sanctuary is home to ten habituated gorilla families, each welcoming up to eight participants daily. Your options here are as diverse as the lush landscape itself. Embark on an unforgettable gorilla tracking adventure, scale the impressive Visoke volcano, or set out to track the enchanting golden monkeys. For those with a scientific curiosity, a visit to the Karisoke Research Centre is a must – a facility established by the renowned primatologist, Dian Fossey. Alternatively, you can immerse yourself in the local culture by exploring nearby villages. The Parc National des Volcans (PNV) is an integral part of the Virunga Conservation Area, covering an expanse of over 125 square kilometers. Should you wish to explore beyond the park, a tour of Kigali City awaits. The city boasts vibrant markets, poignant genocide memorials, and craft centers, making it a compelling destination. Throughout Rwanda, solemn memorials stand as powerful reminders of the tragic events of 1994. One of the most significant among them is the Genocide Memorial in Kigali (Gisozi), offering a comprehensive insight into the history of the genocide. Visiting these memorials is an emotional experience for most visitors.
