Gorilla & Primate Tracking
The gorilla families that are tracked are semi-humanized and communicate with the guide showing their ease around humans, meaning that most groups come within a few metres of our distant relations, without any barriers. Thus creating an exciting once in a lifetime experience.
Tracking the gorillas through the thick undergrowth can be a strenuous task, albeit in the end, a rewarding one. As the name suggests, there can be a lot of steep gradients to conquer.
Led by a park ranger, the actual trek to the gorillas’ resting place can be several hours or it can be just 30 minutes. We therefore suggest that people are relatively fit.
The Parc National des Volcans also offers the wonderful opportunity to see the endangered golden monkey's, who are so boisterous you will get incredibly close to them!
There are two troups - Kabatwa, which are located close to Parc Headquarters and the Musanga who are near Karisimbi, which is a longer trek but ensures incredible pictures! To ensure the gorillas continual survival, you are only allowed one hour with the gorillas.
Rwanda also gives you the chance to see the chimpanzees, who are so similar to humans it will make you laugh out loud! They are more energetic than gorillas, so although the trek might be slightly similar to finding the gorillas, their behaviour makes them such characters, that every effort is worth it!
The chimpanzees are found in the Nyungwe Forest National Park, which allows you to see primates in different surroundings and creates the chance to appreciate the incredible country Rwanda is... and the opportunities that only this country has to offer.
