3 Days Rwanda Gorilla Trekking Tour

3 Days Rwanda Gorilla Trekking Tour : The Rwanda Volcanoes National Park is accessible with this 3-day gorilla trekking safari package. In Rwanda’s northwest is where you can find the Volcanoes National Park. Its 62 square miles are made up of rain forest and 5 of the 8 volcanoes that make up the larger Virunga region. Muhabura, Karisimbi, Sabinyo, Bisoke, and Gahinga are some of these mountains. The Mgahinga National Park in Uganda and the Virunga National Park in Congo are on either side of the park.

The Rwandan Volcanoes National Park has gained notoriety as the previous home of Dian Fossey, a renowned primatologist, as well as the habitat of Mountain Gorillas and Golden Monkeys. As a component of the larger Virunga Conservation area, the volcanoes national park was first established as a park in 1925 to safeguard the mountain gorillas that lived on Mount Mikeno, Karisimbi, and Bisoke. After some time, its borders were delineated to include solely Rwanda. The park gained international recognition as Dian Fossey’s home base starting in 1967. She put a lot of effort into preserving the park’s mountain gorillas and spreading awareness of their condition and potential extinction. Fossey provided ground-breaking discoveries in gorilla study, despite being assassinated in 1967, and for this reason she is still revered. Many people think mountain gorillas would already be extinct if it weren’t for her efforts. The Volcanoes National Park is also home to elephants, spotted hyenas, forest buffalo, bushbucks, mountain gorillas, and golden monkeys. Birdwatchers can anticipate seeing roughly 178 known species.

Together with other partners and foreign organizations, the Rwanda Development Board is in charge of maintaining the park. More money is made through tourism in Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park than any other national park. Gorilla tourism is especially gratifying, while some travelers have stayed away due to the recent increase in the cost of gorilla permits. In Rwanda, a gorilla permit costs $1500. The majority of the money earned is used to preserve animals and keep the national park in good condition. In addition to gorilla trekking, visitors can ascend Mount Karisimbi, go to Dian Fossey’s tomb, search for golden monkeys, visit the Iby’iwacu Cultural Village, or explore the twin lakes of Ruhondo and Burera.

A visit to the Iby’iwacu Cultural Village and a city tour of Kigali are included in the 3-day gorilla tour of Rwanda. You may learn about Rwandan culture while visiting the village, and you can enjoy local songs, folktales, and cultural dances. To understand more about the awful Rwandan genocide, gorilla tours in Rwanda begin and end in Kigali with a trip to the Gisozi genocide memorial.
