We have successfully made this express one day Mountain Gorillas excursion a reality. The most convenient way to witness the majestic Mountain Gorillas in the shortest time possible is through our single day Mountain Gorilla trekking adventure that commences and concludes in Kigali. This option is highly recommended for travelers who are already in Rwanda, as it necessitates an early morning departure to reach the park headquarters in time for the Gorilla tracking experience, which promises to be unforgettable. Do miss a chance to come face to face with one of the world’s most iconic species- the endangered Mountain Gorillas in their natural habitat in Volcanoes National Park.


  • Explore the Volcanoes National Park
  • Lifetime encounter with Mountain Gorillas in their natural habitat
  • En-route stopovers for scenic landscapes viewing


Early morning meet and greet with your driver guide at 4:30AM for a quick briefing ahead of a 2.5hours road transfer to Volcanoes National park. Upon arrival at the park’s office in Kinigi, enjoy a cup of coffee and traditional dances as park authorities gear up for briefing and Gorilla trekking etiquette to guide your journey into the jungle. You will be randomly allocated a Gorilla Group and after that, drive to the starting point where your trek in search of Gorillas starts. Please note the trek can take anything from 1 to 8 hours depending on the movements of Gorillas. Once you have spotted and spent the usually described as the ‘Magical One hour’ with a family of Mountain Gorillas, doing what they do best: eating fresh stems, bamboo shoots, roaring and beating up their chest or sleeping. You can take pictures (with no flash), or you could simply watch the gentle giants, their features, movements, gestures etc.  It is such an intimate moment that the hour will seem to fly by. Make this adventure memorable in your own way; only keep in mind the Gorilla Trekking Etiquette. Hike back for a refreshment lunch before driving back to Kigali. Drop-off at your residence hotel.
