Go Gorilla Trekking in Rwanda

Things to Do

There are lots of things to do in Rwanda. These include gorilla trekking, game viewing, chimpanzee tracking, bird watching, sightseeing, volcanoes trekking and hiking, canopy walks, cultural tours etc. Here are some of the most popular adventure activities that visitors engage in while on holiday in Rwanda;

Game Viewing

Rwanda is home to the endangered mountain gorillas of Parc National des Volcans. Gorilla Tracking is an awe inspiring experience and can be combined with chimpanzee tracking and the savannah game of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and Queen Elizabeth National Park in Uganda. Chimpanzee tracking is also possible in Nyungwe Forest in Rwanda.

In the Volcanoes area of Rwanda you can expect to find bamboo specialists such as golden monkeys and mountain gorilla as well as habitat tolerant species such as buffalo and elephant. The best time for sighting animals is during the dry season between mid December to March and mid May to mid October although it is easy to track and see them year round.

Bird watching

Rwanda is a fantastic destination for bird watchers with an incredible 670 species recorded in an area smaller than Belgium. Lush flora will attract many species but sightings may be easier during dry periods – mid December to March and mid May to mid October.
