Volcanoes National Park is situated about two hours from Kigali city, Rwanda’s capital. The drive to the park is scenic – viewing the beautiful mountains and green forests, which gave Rwanda its name as the “land of a thousand hills.” Rwanda Gorilla Trekking can take minutes or hours, depending on where the gorillas decide to rest from the previous day. In Rwanda Gorilla Trekking experience, you will have a magical chance to see them feeding and crushing through the underbrush, babies running around and full-grown gorillas inching toward observers loudly declaring their importance.
