This one day gorilla trekking trip in Rwanda is best taken when a visitor is already in Rwanda. The safari requires very early pick up and late drop off. The gorilla groups are allocated to the guests at random at the park headquarters. Fortunately for you, our experienced guides have over time built a strong relationship with the park wardens which gives our safari great access! Come explore Africa with us!
