3 Days Rwanda Tour - Gorilla tracking and culture tour

This 3 day Rwanda gorilla trekking safari tour will combine great Rwanda safari highlights of gorilla trekking and a glimpse into the Rwandan cultural by visiting the Iby’Iwacu cultural village. The mountain gorillas live deep in the jungles of the Virunga volcanoes shared between Uganda, Rwanda and Congo. This tour will take you to the volcanoes national park which offers the perfect inhabitant for mountain gorillas found in northern Rwanda on the border with Uganda. The route to this park takes you through the communities where you enjoy the scenery of ‘the thousand hills’. Gorilla trekking is a special intimate experience that is hard to relay to someone who has never come close to the gorillas. You get to spend up to one hour with gorillas, after locating them with your ranger guide.
