WHAT IS THE COST OF GORILLA TREKKING IN VOLCANOES NATIONAL PARK - RWANDA
Gorilla trekking in Volcanoes National Park takes place in the northwestern part of Rwanda in Musanze village within the Virunga conservation area, near Virunga national park in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and also bordering Mgahinga gorilla national park in Uganda. Mount Volcanoes National Park is characterized by bamboo forests, swamps, thickets, grasslands, alpine forests, and five of the eight Virunga chain volcanic mountains, such as Mount Karisimbi, Mount Bisoke, Mount Muhabura, Mount Gahinga, and Mount Sabinyo.
Volcanoes National Park harbors various wildlife species like the endangered mountain gorillas, magical golden monkeys, mammals like forest elephants, cape buffaloes, giant forest hogs, bush pigs, and bird species like Bateleur, Ruwenzori double-collared sunbird, handsome francolin, blue-spotted wood dove, and many more.
Gorilla trekking in Volcanoes National Park takes place due to 10 habituated mountain gorilla families who are ready for trekking daily. Gorilla trekking is an exciting adventure that entails trekking deep into the African jungle in search of habituated mountain gorilla families.
Gorilla trekking in Volcanoes national park is done throughout the year, although it is best done during the dry season, also termed the peak season, which is divided into two sessions: the first session starts in the months of June, July, August, and September, and the second session starts in December, January, and February. During the dry season, little rainfall is received, which makes gorilla trekking trails in the jungle passable compared to the wet season.
