On meeting the gorillas, after 1-6 hours of search, you will enjoy them play, feed, guard each other, as well as taking photographs and you will spend a maximum of an hour with them before descending back to the starting point. After arriving at the park headquarters, you will be awarded the trekking certificate and later get on to the hotel for a delicious lunch meal before driving back to Kigali city to end your 1 Day Rwanda gorilla trek

Please Note: The gorilla groups are allocated to the guests at random at the park headquarters. However, our experienced guides have over time built a strong relationship with the park wardens. They normally talk to them before time and express the clients’ interests in specific gorilla groups. They normally get a positive response over this.
