When you are visiting Volcanoes, Gorilla trekking is the area’s unmatched main attraction and the Volcanoes National Park is where to turn in Rwanda to do it. There are, birds and primates like golden monkeys to watch, as families of habituated mountain gorillas.
Volcanoes National Park is the site of Dian Fossey’s Karisoke Research Station, where she led a team to learning gorillas in the wild. You can use about a 5-hour hike to her tomb. The trek is a good time to look out for primates, hogs, forest elephants and a plethora of bird species. There are a few groups of habituated golden monkeys, whose antics are countless fun to watch. Golden monkeys are also threatened and permits are required for trekking them. It is constantly worth thinking more about the native art, music, and culture of the area you are exploring (Iby’Iwacu”).
Don’t forget to take a guided community walk to Iby’Iwacu village where you will experience native dancing, learn beer fermented from local bananas, and visit a local doctor. Serious trekkers might desire to consider a more than 1-day hike to Karisimbi Mountain. Although this is impartially vigorous, you will be pleased with outstanding birding, stunning scenery and the peak of the fifth-highest elevation in Africa.
