Trek through green wilderness

Walking under canopy of high-rise bamboo forest, amidst cloud forest, bushwhacking through thickets, stepping down steep trails amidst dense vegetation, sometimes on slippery tracks. This expedition will be unlike any other!

Immerse into nature

With stays arranged in one of the best nature based lodge in the world, your journey will be filled with tropical sights and smells - coos of birds, sunlight streaming through canopy of giant plants, sound of pounding rain. At times, it will be just the sound of wind passing through the forest & your heartbeats!

Meeting Gorillas in their natural habitat

Undoubtedly an extraordinary experience. The sight of mama gorilla lovingly caressing her baby, the silverback walking, or the juveniles playing is a sensory memory, that deeply moves the heart of many

How your participation makes the difference

10% of the revenue from gorilla trekking permits are used for conservation & community development, so your Rwanda gorilla trek will directly contribute to the protection of these beautiful creatures & the surrounding communities

Hiring Porters for your trek

We encourage to make it a conscious practice to hire porters, as part of contribution in preserving the people who depend on this activity for their living, as well as their role in conserving our endangered cousins
