A gorilla trekking tour in Rwanda is an ultimate safari experience and a highlight of your visit to Volcanoes national park which is part of the Virunga circuit also covering Mgahinga Gorilla national park of Uganda and the Virunga of D.R.Congo. Take a tour to the intriguing mountain gorilla, mammals close to human kind; they portray what a human being would be like in the wild because 95% of their DNA is more like that of human beings. Many of these mountain gorillas actually now pose for photographs a typical human character. You will be fascinated on your one hour interaction with these creatures if encountered on your gorilla safari in Rwanda.

Similarly to the mountain gorillas, chimpanzees are the closest primates to human beings with a 97.8% DNA of human beings. Inhabiting Africa’s oldest equatorial forests of Nyungwe, chimpanzees can be tracked at only $90 in Rwanda. Nyungwe forest national park has clear walking trails one can use for forest expeditions with a 50 meters canopy walk way that will give you aerial views of the forested national park and some other primate species in their canopy of the forest.

Rwanda is home to hospitable people who are always willing to teach all those interested to know about their unique cultural and traditional practices. The Rwandan community is made up of only 3 tribes; the Tutsi, Hutu and Batwa. While in a local home stay, local people will let you participate in day to day activities like cooking, craft making, firewood collection and other activities like tree planting.

The Rwandese organizes cultural events that bring together all kinds of people from different corners of the world. During these cultural events, the Rwandese people exhibit their local art and craft pieces and one can buy souvenirs to keep memories of the experiences in this country. The most popular cultural events include the Hope Rwanda “100 Days of Hope” that is celebrated in commemoration of the lost lives during the Rwanda genocide. Kwita Iziina is a mountain gorilla naming ceremony and another event you ought not to miss while on a Rwanda safari. The ceremony is intended to protect the young mountain gorillas for the future generation.

You might not be interested in bird watching however the unique species of birds in Rwanda will make you visit the country again to spot and learn more about birds of Rwanda. The elusive shoebill storks, king fishers, pallid harrier hawk, papyrus Gonolek are among the bird species Rwanda has to offer.
