Commune with the gorillas of Rwanda

Saturday, May 13th, 2017

Commune with gorillas with Rwanda Eco-ToursTaking a peek at the lives of gorillas is not a new experience, afterall they are a common resident of zoos and nature parks. Communing with them where they live, however, now that’s a twist on the zoo concept for sure.

You don’t have to be Jane Goodall to see these gorillas. The trek starts with an early morning drive to Musanze/Ruhengeri passing through the picturesque hilly countryside. The landscape is what gives Rwanda its nickname of “the Land of a Thousand Hills.” Then trek among the Mountain Gorillas of Parc National des Volcans for the experience of a lifetime. There are seven gorilla groups that have been habituated for tourism.

Getting up close and personal with the gorillas isn’t the only amazing aspect of this tour. There are spectacular views of the volcanoes of Mount Karisimbi, Bisoke, Sabyinyo, Gahinga and Muhabura. You’ll wind down your tour with a visit to Iby’Iwacu Cultural Village to have an interactive experience with locals learning about Rwandan traditions, culture, song and dance. Sample the local cuisine and take a taste of banana beer.

Rwanda Eco-Tours strives to make a difference in the world by offering eco and responsible safaris that directly benefit the local Rwanda community as an incentive for conservation. During your tour you even have the option of visiting the projects and communities that benefit from these eco tours.

Rwanda Eco-Tours is owned and run by local Rwandans. Their extensive experience and knowledge in tourism and conservation will assure you experience the wonders of the gorilla habitat, the beauty of the country’s people and culture in a way you’ve never experienced before.

If a day trek is too short, Rwanda Eco-Tours has 2-, 4-, 6-, 7-, 8- and 12-day excursions that will allow you to more deeply explore the culture, community, and of course the gorillas!
