WHAT CAN I DO IN VOLCANOES NATIONAL PARK-RWANDA
Volcanoes National Park is a top safari destination in Rwanda, with the highest growing number of travelers visiting Rwanda for mountain gorilla trekking experiences and other Rwanda wildlife safaris. Travelers to Volcanoes National Park have other activities to engage in depending on their personal interests and time.
Mountain gorilla tracking is a top priority for many travelers to Volcanoes National Park. Volcanoes National Park accommodates over 10 habituated mountain gorilla families that are ready for trekking. Volcanoes National Park shares borders with Virunga National Park in the Congo and Mgahinga gorilla national park in Uganda.
Golden monkey trekking is the second-best-done tourism activity in Volcanoes National Park, attracting thousands of travelers to this African jungle. Golden monkeys are magnificent creatures that travelers should not miss out on adding to their Rwanda safari basket list. Golden monkey tracking is only done in Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda and Mgahinga Gorilla National Park in Uganda. Travelers can track golden monkeys in their natural environment. Fortunately, golden monkey tracking permits are relatively cheap compared to mountain gorilla trekking.
Besides wildlife species, Volcanoes National Park accommodates the three extinct volcanoes where travelers can engage themselves in hiking to the top of any of the volcanoes, which rewards them with spectacular views of Rwanda’s a thousand hills, Kigali city, the Virunga chained volcanoes, and the local communities in Rwanda. Other activities at volcanoes include caving and visiting the twin lakes of Bulera and Buhondo.
