Volcanoes national park is 160km2 national park that protects the Rwanda sector of the Virunga Mountains, a range of six extinct and three active volcanoes which stand across the common border of Rwanda, Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Gorilla tracking is a highly controlled activity with limited gorilla tracking permits available each day. The tracking can be strenuous and may reach altitudes of 3000m above sea level. The walk will be slippery and the paths are never defined but the end result is one you will forever cherish. To stand within close proximity of these amazing primates is a truly emotional but memorable experience. To gaze into their liquid-brown eyes is so breathtaking. Because of high cost of Rwandan gorilla permit (1500$pp),we have made this activity optional. Those who might opt for it will have to pay for it separately.
