What is Gorilla Trekking?
Gorilla trekking is most popular tourist activity in Rwanda and Uganda. It ranks as one of the world’s best adventures in Africa. It takes place in Volcanoes National Park, located in the northern part of the country; about 90 minutes drive from Kigali, the capital city of Rwanda. The trek in search for mountain gorillas in Volcanoes National Park is quiet strenuous, goes through steep and slippery jungle grounds. The hike can take between 1-7 hours depending on how gorillas move in their natural habitat. It also depends on how fast you move. If you have a slow person on the group, you are likely to take long on the trek.
