Rwanda is a tiny but magical country with unforgettable wildlife, scenery and experiences.
The Volcanoes National Park is home to a population of mountain gorillas (the others being located in Mgahinga in Uganda and the Volcanoes mountain region in Congo). Volcanoes’ Virunga Safari Lodge (Parc National des Volcans) is at the heart of this region.
Dian Fossey, iconic zoologist dedicated her life to understanding mountain gorillas, studied the Rwandan population of gorillas. Our luxury Rwanda safaris also feature excursions to this remarkable woman’s grave in Parc National des Volcans.
A once in a lifetime experience, our safari holidays feature gorilla trekking as one of your activities. Setting off from one of our luxury eco safari lodges, most treks involve 3 – 8 hours of journeying through unspoiled forest. Both Uganda and Rwanda are home to unique wildlife and your gorilla trek will feature many beautiful landmarks and animals.
Nothing will be able to prepare you for when you first see the mountain gorillas in the wild. In their natural habitat, these mystical animals are docile and mesmerising – a memory that will last you a lifetime.
Our luxury safari holidays will give you countless memories to cherish forever. Everyday you will wake up to the sounds of exotic birds and beautiful blue skies. Trekking through the Virunga Volcanoes region, you will see all kinds of mesmerizing flora and fauna.

Additionally, excursions to chimp sanctuaries can be arranged for you.
The elusive golden monkey (a relative of the Blue monkey) is considered endangered although their exact population is unknown. The Parc National des Volcans, located in Rwanda, is one of the best places to track and see these monkeys.
Seeing golden monkeys in the Virunga forest with Volcanoes Safaris is an incredible excursion as part of your luxury Rwandan safari itinerary. Habituating these monkeys was initially difficult but there are now two groups to visit, located not far from our Virunga Safari Lodge.
