The national park in Rwanda shares a border with Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo. It is home to a large number of endangered mountain gorillas. Experts say it has over 600 gorillas in the park, increasing from 240-250 in 1981. The gorilla trekking at the volcanoes is the number one thing to do in Rwanda as a tourist. It is easy to pay a visit to the volcanoes and see one of the 18 mountain gorilla families. It
would help if you had a trekking permit for $1500 by contacting a reputable tour operator responsible for arranging transportation from Kigali to the park, and we can help as a guest of Empathy Manor.

It is a memorable experience, 4-8 hours, usually spent trekking through bamboo forest and swampy areas. There will be guides from the national park to give you a wonderful experience of the gorilla families. You will then observe how the creatures live their daily lives, including how they eat, care for their babies, and interact with each other.

.Gorilla trekking is primarily considered a very safe activity in Rwanda. The gorillas are mostly apathetic to their human visitors. There are armed guides that make clicking sounds to
communicate with the gorillas. They ensure safety from potential dangers, making the experience a memorable one.
They are porters at the base of the trails in Volcanoes National Park, and you can hire one that will help carry your bags and help you avoid slipping down the muddy paths.

Want to learn more about mountain gorillas? After your trekking adventure, head to the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund International Karisoke Research Center in the nearby town of Musanze. It contains a small yet robust museum about mountain gorillas and conservationist Dian Fossey's work, whose efforts to protect gorillas were made famous by the 1988 drama, Gorillas in the Mist.
