Volcanoes National Park is also the location where the American Primatologist and conservationist activist, Dian Fossey spent 18 years of her life studying gorillas and protecting them from poachers which ultimately led to her murder. The park was made famous by the popular Hollywood Movie Gorillas in the Mist (1988), filmed on location and chronicling her life’s work.

Day 2: Morning Gorilla Trekking & Evening Walking Tour to the Beautiful Twin Lakes

After breakfast at 6 am, transfer to the park offices to meet your excellent local park rangers/guides for a gorilla trekking briefing. At 8 am, start your unforgettable trek deep into the jungle through volcano forests alongside an expert guide to search for the giant Mountain Gorilla.

Trackers leave before the tourist groups to locate the gorilla groups so your guide should know where to take you. In the wet and muddy conditions, the gorilla trek can be relatively tiresome as you hike through the dense vegetation and climb to the base of the Virunga Volcanos where the gorilla families are found.

But know that if you spot these gentle human-like creatures (we share 98% of our DNA with them) it will all be worth it. You can get very close to the gentle giants and watching their movements is like seeing a mirror image of yourself.  Your visit with the gorillas will last one unforgettable hour.

You then return to your lodge for a late delicious lunch and relaxation. In the evening, take a walk to the beautiful twin lakes of Ruhondo and Bulera where you have an encounter with the local fishermen and also enjoy the spectacular views of the lake.
