Track-Mountain-Gorillas-RwandaExperiential Gorilla Tracking Adventures in Rwanda:

Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park is the place for your Gorilla Tracking Adventure, some enjoy Gorilla Tracking so much that they track Gorillas twice in the Park.

Gorillas for most are the main reason that tourists from around the world venture to Rwanda.  Once that they are here they discover that there is a lot more to do and see.

The gorillas are chief attraction for adventure seekers and it certainly is a once in a lifetime experience for most.

There is nothing that can compare to spending one hour with Mountain Gorillas in Rwanda.  It is Rwanda’s greatest Adventure and the adventurous enjoy it greatly.

Let us include Gorilla Tracking in your Rwanda Itinerary.


Experiential Golden Monkey Tracking Adventures:Golden-Monkey-Tracking-Volcanoes-Park

Golden Monkey Tracking Adventures in Volcanoes National Park is an enjoyable Gorilla Tracking add-on adventure for most.

It is a morning half-day activity and another brisk climb-hike among the scenic Virunga Volcanoes in Volcanoes National Park

Whereas the Mountain Gorillas may be quite stationary for the most part, Golden Monkeys flit around and you have to have a fast eye to keep up with them.

Just like the Mountain Gorillas, the Golden Monkeys are habituated which means that they are used to the presence of Human Beings.

We love to include Golden Monkey Tracking in your Rwanda Itinerary.

Chimpanzee Tracking adventures can be included in your Rwanda Safari Itinerary – here in Rwanda they start quite early and you have to be ready at 5:30 am before you head into the Afro-Montane Forest for a few hours to meet our closest cousins.

The wet season is the best time of the year as you search for Chimpanzees.  They are semi-habituated here in this forest and it is becoming easier to track them here.

You can also track the large group of Ruwenzori Colobus Monkeys which is an amazing sight.  Over 400 monkeys at a time.

Gray Cheeked Mangabeys can be tracked here also.  There are 13 species of primates found here in total.

Mount Muhabura is the second highest peak inside of Volcanoes National Park – it is also in Virunga Volcano Chain the most easterly Volcano and straddles both Rwanda and Uganda and can be climbed on either side of the border.The views from the top of Mount Muhabura are stunning.

Mount Karisimbi Climb – Hike – is a guided – two-day Mount Karisimbi (white shell Mountain) to the 5th highest snow-capped peak in Africa is a most amazing journey – not soon forgotten.
