Gorilla Trekking in Rwanda

Gentle giants up close!

The small inland Rwanda has a lot to offer its visitors. Here you can watch the very rare mountain gorillas in the wild. Where is the best place to spot gorillas? In the Valcanoes National Park. 

Process of the hike...

Seeing gorillas in the wild is a special experience.

The most important thing is to treat the animals with respect!

Therefore, before the hike, all participants are informed about the behavior of the monkeys, nature and the correct etiquette in the rainforest.

After having wandered through the dense rainforest for a certain time, perceiving the very special background noise and fruity / Flowery smelly, you can already see the first gorillas.

The guide explains the daynamic and behavior within a gorilla family for about 1 hour.

Then it goes back to the accommodation to review the special impressions. 

Tips & Tricks

The best time to travel: June – August / December – late February

Since you are in a dense rainforest, we recommend that you wear long clothes to avoid scratches and insect bites.

Due to the high humidity, you should definitely pack functional clothing.




Kataza House | Kwitonda Lodge

The Singita Kwitonda Lodge and the exclusively used Kataza House are located on the edge of the Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda, where more than a third of the world's remaining mountain gorillas live in high-altitude cloud forests. They are the perfect starting point for extraordinary gorilla treks that you will never forget. The lodge and the villa are the only places in close proximity to the natural habitat of the "gentle giants of the forest". The park headquarters where the safaris begin is less than 10 minutes away.
