1 Day Short Gorilla Tour in Rwanda

A 1-day gorilla tour to Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park is still possible to depart from Kigali the same day and back to Kigali.

Although Volcanoes National Park deserves more than just a 1-day visit with so many attractions to offer visitors to the Land of a Thousand Hills.

The park is home to 10 habituated gorilla families. Gorilla tracking starts at 07:30 a.m. with a briefing at Kinigi visitor center.

For a one-day Rwanda gorilla safari to happen, you should arrive at the park on time. Therefore, you will have to depart Kigali early morning at 04:00 AM and then you will drive for 2 hours a journey that brings you to Volcanoes National Park.

When you reach Volcanoes National Park, you will enjoy local traditional dance entertainment and a cup of Rwanda coffee and thereafter get briefed on the gorilla families.

The park ranger will lead you into the montane and bamboo forest of Volcanoes National Park to search for the endangered mountain gorillas.

It will take you 1-2 hours to find the gorillas depending on the group’s locality. You will then spend one hour with the gorillas observing their social behaviors as well as taking their photos and videos.

At the end of an hour, you will leave the park and access the nearby restaurant to have lunch and then be led back to Kigali to end your one-day Rwanda Gorilla Safari tour.
