During the 8 Days Rwanda Gorilla Trekking Safari you will start the safari adventure in Rwanda through the assistance of our expert guidance team from the departure of Kigali by visiting the historical sites of the main road Kammerer’s rock.

Other destinations serially visited by the tourist as Ruhengeri, Banana and Sorghum beer production, and farewell Kigali.
Although gorilla viewing is possible year-round in Bwindi, the ideal time to see gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is during the dry/peak season. The drier months of December through February and June through August are when the peak season occurs. It rains from March through May and from October through November. The thick undergrowth and muddy pathways make tracking gorillas during the rainy season more difficult. Visitors shouldn't be deterred from scheduling tours during the wet season, either. There are discounts for gorilla permits during the rainy/low season. Additionally, the park is less crowded, giving tourists more time with the gorillas. The fact that Bwindi is a rain forest should not be overlooked. Rain should be anticipated at all
The smallest national park in Uganda is Mgahinga Gorilla National Park, which is situated 510 kilometers from Kampala, the country's capital, in the southwest of the country. The park is a part of the northeastern Virunga Volcano conservation area, which extends into Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Many Uganda safaris and trips visit Mgahinga Gorilla National Park for gorilla trekking, which is highly popular.
In Mgahinga Gorilla National Park, the Nyakagezi Gorilla Family is the only gorilla family that may be visited under close supervision. Groups of up to 8 persons may visit the habituated gorillas when they are led by a ranger guide. The distance the gorillas are from the starting point determines how long a typical gorilla trekking session lasts in Mgahinga Gorilla National Park.
