Gorilla tracking Rwanda

Gorilla tracking is done in the Volcanoes National Park North west of Rwanda about 2 hrs of drive time from kigali the main Capital. Booking a gorilla trip requires an advance arrangement of atleast 6 TO 3 months before gorilla tracking to secure a Gorilla Permit.

There are very few Mountain Gorillas remaining in the world for several reasons despite several efforts by government and researchers like Dian fossey who was an American zoologist who undertook an extensive study of gorilla groups over a period of 18 years in Rwanda and Congo discouraging local people especially in Congo to kill Gorillas and other Monkeys as a delicacy for such reasons with fears of people mis-understanding and mistreating Gorillas, most Adventure travellers to Rwanda will want to track these amazing Giants in their natural habitat in the Volcanoes to make sure they have a life time tour of the Gorillas in Rwanda.
