This 3 Days Rwanda Gorilla Safari is one of the shortest Africa Safari that we offer. This gorilla tour is best suited for a business traveler that only has a weekend to spare or one that wants to add the gorilla trekking experience on an overland Africa safari from Uganda, Kenya, and Tanzania.

The Rwanda gorilla safari starts in Kigali where we’ll pick you and transfer you to Volcanoes National Park, check you into the luxury and serene Virunga Lodge just outside the gorilla sanctuary, for the next two nights. Spend a day in Rwanda’s rain forest jungle, track the mountain gorilla, and spend one precious once-in-a-lifetime hour with them and live to tell the tales of the African jungle.

The trip is tailor-made and can be adjusted in your own style of travel. It includes transfers, meals, accommodation and activities. Though we process the gorilla tracking permit on your behalf, that part of the bill is on you ($1500 per person + processing fees).


Safari Highlights

Visit the Kigali genocide Memorial or take a city excursion around Kigali city and experience the African cultures. The road drive across Rwanda’s countryside will reveal the most stunning natural setting of this tiny East African country. Tracking the mountain gorilla in Volcanoes may appear third on this bullet but just because we wanted to squeeze the best in here. This is the top highlight of this trip and a bucket-list Africa Safari item. Activities around the lodge after the gorilla trek like Rwanda cultural tales, music and dance will impress your travel lust.
