Create an itinerary including Volcanoes National Park
Home to the majestic mountain gorilla, Volcanoes National Park encompasses a dramatic landscape of wildlife, rainforest, and active and extinct volcanoes. Lying in the northwest of Rwanda, bordering the Democratic Republic of Congo and Uganda, the park boasts a famous abundance of mountain gorillas, with gorilla-tracking visits topping most tourist itineraries here. Uncover the thick rainforest paths of this dense mountain jungle, with trekking also available on some of the five Virunga Mountain volcanoes, or to the grave of acclaimed zoologist Dian Fossey. Gorilla tracking is limited; book early, and come prepared for challenging hikes.

  • Fantastic jungle trekking and gorilla experience. Once in a life time, bucket list, must do experience. Very experienced and knowledgeable guides. Done in a sustainable, environmentally friendly and respectful of the animals way. You get close but are kept away from touching or directly interacting with these magnificent animals. Well worth the cost. (Note the trekking can be tough. It is more treacherous than strenuous, and watch out for the stinging nettle!!)
  • I was so excited to be there. The staff were friendly and helpful. We had Mr Fidel as our guide and he is the best. Our experience visiting the gorillas is a memorable one.
