Gorilla Trekking in Rwanda

Gorilla Trekking in Rwanda

To trek through the dense forest of the Virunga volcanoes is to be transported back to a time where the world was not yet domesticated. Then, families of gorillas roamed free and wide through rainforests, a picture of life before civilization. In Rwanda, gorilla trekking is a portal back to that time and an experience unlike any other on Earth. In the lush rainforests of Volcanoes National Park, you will track mountain gorillas up the mountain side until you finally come face to face with these majestic creatures. The experience will leave you with a feeling that is in short supply: wonder. 

But this experience is only possible through the work conservation. While mountain gorillas are some of the most powerful animals on the planet, they are no match for the poaching and deforestation that have thinned their numbers to no more than 1,000. Fortunately, Rwandans view the mountain gorillas as sacred and have made it the highest priority to protect this vulnerable species which is why proceeds from gorilla trekking tours directly contribute to the conservation of the Rwanda's mountain gorillas. This trek not only changes you, it provides aid to those who need it most.  

Additionally, Singita, a brand which has redefined the luxury safari as an instrument of conservation, built Kwitonda Lodge, a lodge that was purpose-built to rehabilitate, reforest and maintain the biological integrity of the land on which it sits. Staying at Kwitonda before, during, and after your gorilla trekking experience not only exposes you to the gorgeous surrounds of Rwanda but also contributes to its conservation as well.
