GORILLA TREKKING IN RWANDA



Travel To Rwanda!

About Our Rwandan Ecotour

Gorilla Trekking in Rwanda – Hike through the mist-covered bamboo rainforest and gaze deeply into the soulful brown eyes of endangered mountain gorillas—the largest-living primate on the planet. Encounter golden monkeys and other engaging wildlife and boat across Lake Kivu, one of the Great African lakes, renowned for its scenic beauty. Savor local Rwandan coffee, sip banana wine, and participate in a cooking class at an inspiring nonprofit based in Kigali.

In addition to our small-group departures, we also arrange custom tours of varying lengths and styles!

Gondwana Ecotours has teamed up with Aspire Rwanda, a non-profit in Kigali, which provides women who are having trouble making ends meet with the tools to earn a living and improve their quality of life. Selected students are taught literacy, nutrition and health, family planning, and women’s rights. Additionally, their children are provided with two nutritional meals a day and given access to education.

We are proud to announce that during the trip, guests will be able to have a hands-on cooking lesson from Aspire Rwanda students. This experience will not only offer guests an opportunity to go to a local market and to cook a delicious meal, but also offer the students at Aspire Rwanda a chance to teach.

In addition to Carbon offsetting your flights, and visiting with Aspire Rwanda, Gondwana will make a contribution to the organization on each trip. We also have wish lists available for those who feel like contributing more.
