The thrill of safari draws travellers from all around the world and there is no greater place to view such a range of wildlife in their natural habitat as in Serengeti. For most safari goers, the trip may well be a once-in-a-lifetime experience, when they are keen to see as much of the region as possible. Beyond the Serengeti and its surrounding areas there is so much diversity to be enjoyed, with one of the most unique experiences being the chance to trek with the endangered Mountain Gorillas of Rwanda.
Flights between Serengeti and Kigali, the capital of Rwanda, operate on a daily basis, making this a seamless pre- or post-safari connection. From Kigali, take a three hour drive outside the city to Volcanoes National Park to the home of the 800 remaining Mountain Gorillas. Led by an expert guide, tailor a one, two or three day itinerary to explore the beauty of this incredible creature’s habitat – high on the flanks of the Virunga Volcano, with the choice to also spend time relaxing in a mountain lodge or exploring Kigali, which is often referred to as one of Africa’s most attractive capital cities.
During the trek, you may learn more about the critical dangers facing the Mountain Gorillas during a meeting with a team member from the Gorilla Doctors, to discover close-up insights about these gentle giants.
