Why you'll love this trip
  • Stay in the small Rwandan town of Ruhengeri
  • Hike through Rwanda's dense steamy jungles in Volcanoes National Park
  • Fall in love with the gentle nature of mountain gorillas for one intimate hour
  • Visit the moving Genocide Memorial Centre on a city tour of Kigali
  • By travelling on this trip, you’ll directly support our Intrepid Foundation partner, Gorilla Doctors. Donations help them care for injured mountain and Grauer's gorillas – contributing to the long-term sustainability of gorilla populations.

Is this trip right for you?
  • Trekking to find the gorillas can be a challenging and long hike.
  • You will spend only one hour with the gorillas. There is an option to pre-purchase another gorilla permit to visit the gorillas on both days 2 & 3.
  • This is one of our Short Breaks and is slightly different to our group tours. There is no group leader but rather a local guide with the idea being that you maintain a level of independence during down time. You'll most likely travel on a join-in basis, which means you may or may not be joined by others for activities and transportation, depending on demand.
