Gorilla Encounters is an ultimate travel agency organizing tours in Rwanda for travelers on budget basis. Our packages are designed to match with your time you want to spend on a trip in Rwanda. Because gorilla tracking is one of the most turning adventure, and marks a climax of any African trip, we design itineraries ranging as;
Day Gorilla Trekking.
Day Gorilla Trekking Safari.
Day Gorillas and Golden monkey tracking.
Day Gorillas and Nyungwe chimpanzee tracking.
All packages above have got special interests which clients will choose to take. A one day Rwanda gorilla tracking safari focuses on Gorillas only and here clients do not spend much time on the trip. Pickup is always scheduled from either hotels or airport and visitors leave directly to the park at around 4:00am. And after tracking they return either for their flight back home or any stay in Rwanda as they may decide.
On the other hand, a 2 day Rwanda Gorilla tour involves a brief city tour of Kigali, especially the Kigali genocide sites, and this can be done before or after gorilla tracking.
The other package include tracking golden monkeys in the same national park of Volcanoes but this implies an extra pay of 150 dollars for these primates tracking. Usually you need to have two nights of either in Ruhengeri or one in Kigali to fulfill these activities.
A 3 day Chimps and Gorilla trekking will introduce you to two parks of Volcanoes national park for Gorilla trekking and then the Nyungwe forest for Chimpanzee tracking. In this case you choose which activity to begin with, either Gorilla trekking or Chimpanzee tracking in the Nyungwe forest because these are two distinctive parks and are located far away from each other.
