Rwanda safari tours places to visit
For many travelers, who intend to visit Rwanda, the tracking of gorillas ranks among one of the most exhilarating highlights of their trip to Africa. Mountain Gorillas are one of the world’s most endangered species of apes. It is estimated that there are currently less than 900 individuals left throughout the world.
Nearly half of these can be found in Uganda, but significant populations can also be found in the Democratic Republic of Congo and the Parc National de Volcans in Rwanda. Out of the 15 gorilla groups in Rwanda, 10 are habituated to humans and so can be visited by tourists.
All gorilla groups are accessed from the same location and, unlike Uganda; you cannot reserve a specific group in advance. On the morning of the tracking, park rangers will select people for different gorilla groups according to preference, age, and fitness level. For this reason, we advise older people, or those wanting only a light hike, to track in Rwanda. Gorilla permits in Rwanda cost US$1.500, Uganda is 700$ and the Democratic Republic of Congo is 400$.
Gorilla Groups in Volcanoes National Park, Rwanda: Susa, Sabyinyo, Amahoro, Agashya, Umubano, Kwitonda, Hirwa, Karisimbi, Ugende, and Bwenge.
You can ask your guide about the chance to see the famous gorilla group that Dian Fossey spent her career studying on your Rwanda visit. Rwanda Gorilla Tracking Tips
A maximum of 8 visitors may visit a family/group of habituated gorillas per day.
To avoid exposing our furry friends to strange germs, wash your hands before you head out for the tracking.
Do not leave garbage in the park.
Always keep your voices low. This will ensure that you will be able to observe the beautiful birds and other wildlife in the forest.
Your group of trackers will be heading to the stop where the guides left the gorillas the day before. From the nesting spot, you will track them to their current location. This can take anywhere from 15 minutes to 2 hours.
As you approach the gorillas, the guides will signal when to get your cameras ready.
What to do while with Rwanda’s Gorillas in Parc National Des Volvans Safari Tour
It is okay to ask the guide questions, but keep your voices low.
Do not eat or drink while you are near the gorillas.
Sometimes the gorillas charge. Follow the guide’s example by crouching down slowly, and do not look into the gorillas in the eyes. Wait for the gorilla to pass you by and do not attempt to run away (as this can increase the risk of attack).
Flash photography is not permitted; when taking pictures, move slowly and carefully.
Do not touch the gorillas. Keep in mind that though they may look warm and cuddly, they are still wild animals. Keep a distance of at least 7 meters (21 feet) from the gorillas at all times.
The maximum time visitors are allowed to spend with the gorillas is exactly one hour and the rangers are quite strict about this.

When to visit Nyungwe Forest National Park on Rwanda safari Tour
The Nyungwe Forest National Park can be visited year-round and the chimps are often easier to find during the wet season (mid-March to mid-May). It is equatorial rainforest and trails can get extremely wet and muddy, so it is best to have good shoes and a rain jacket.
Nyungwe Forest National Park Chimpanzee Tracking Safari Tour in Rwanda.
Chimpanzees share an estimated 94.7% of their DNA with humans and many of their behaviors may remind you of a close cousin. One of the highlights of any trip to Rwanda is the opportunity to get up close and personal with these apes in their natural environment. The habituation process is still ongoing and there can be times when you cannot glimpse them with your eyes, but you will know they are there from the hoots and hollers they make. Nyungwe Forest National Park actually provides a haven to 25% of all African primate species, and you are sure to come across at least one troop of colobus monkeys during your stay in the forest.

The church now serves as an homage to those who perished as well as those who have endured tragedy in the family. The excavated clothing and skeletal remains of the deceased as well as personal stories of survivors are on display.
Kigali Memorial Centre Tour In Rwanda

This center has been built near the mass graves of 250,000 of those who perished and attempts to explain the event in context – from the divisive colonial experience in Rwanda and the heinous crimes that took place in 1994 to the aftermath of the genocide and the search for justice. The tour concludes with a section about other massacres of global significance.
