Gorilla Trekking in Rwanda

Adventure & Activities: Gorilla Trekking in Rwanda

New Year, New Travel

Once again, Gondwana has been featured on two “best of” lists! This time, i-on Magazine included our Gorilla Trekking in Rwanda trip in their list of “The Best Adventure Holidays,” and Ocean Home Magazine lists it as one of their “Eight Fit Trips for the New Year.” Whether you’re seeking adventure or activities, choosing to travel Rwanda will deliver both in spades. Like i-on magazine says,  “…if these options don’t turn you into a recklessly spontaneous, thrill-seeking travel junkie, we don’t know what will.”

An Active Vacation

Ocean Home Magazine writes, “With the arrival of a new year, many of us will make resolutions to get fit or take a trip.” Traveling to a new place is always an exciting experience, but getting off the beaten path takes adventure to new heights. For those who enjoy an active vacation, we bring guests to some of the world’s most exotic locations and explore their natural and cultural highlights. Among many activities, gorilla trekking in Rwanda offers hiking in the Virunga Mountains, boating on Lake Kivu, and exploring the culture of Kigali, Rwanda’s capital.

Without a doubt, the real action of this ecotour happens at Volcanoes National Park. There, travelers will, “Encounter some of the last remaining mountain gorillas in the world on a Gondwana EcoTours trek into the lush forests of Rwanda, home to hundreds of species of birds and numerous waterfalls.” A professional guide will lead guests on a hike through the park, until they reach a habituated mountain gorilla family. Read more about gorilla trekking in Rwanda, and what it’s like to see mountain gorillas in the wild.

Rwanda’s Culture

Though the mountain gorillas are the highlight of the trip, the rest of your days in Rwanda will be packed with cultural and natural activities. TheRwandan Genocide took place in the early 90’s and it is remarkable how the country has rebuilt and reclaimed their heritage. This has lead to a renewal of pride for Rwandans and their culture. To experience this first hand, guests will, “Trek through the trees and look out for elephants, buffalo and golden monkeys along the way,” visit a genocide museum and memorial in Kigali, visit a coffee plantation, learn how banana wine is made, and more! With these varied cultural and natural activities, there truly isn’t a dull moment on this trip.
