Gorilla Trekking in Rwanda from France

Gorilla Trekking in Rwanda from France

For those in France seeking a unique and memorable adventure in nature, gorilla trekking in Rwanda from France is an experience not to be missed. This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity allows visitors to come face-to-face with one of the world’s most endangered and fascinating species: the mountain gorilla.

The Virunga Mountains, which stretch across Rwanda, Uganda, and the Democratic Republic of Congo, are home to this critically endangered species, with Rwanda alone hosting approximately a third of the world’s remaining mountain gorillas. Rwanda has established several protected areas where visitors can safely and responsibly observe these incredible creatures in their natural habitat.

Rwanda is known as a luxurious destination for mountain gorilla trekking, offering world-class lodges and eco-friendly accommodations that blend seamlessly into the natural environment. Visitors can enjoy comfortable accommodations and gourmet cuisine, as well as personalized service and attention to detail.

Gorilla trekking in Rwanda from France is an experience that requires advanced planning, as visitors must obtain a permit through the Rwanda Development Board (RDB) to participate. These permits can cost up to $1,500 per person, but the cost is well worth it for the opportunity to observe these magnificent animals up close. Permits are in high demand and limited to a maximum of eight visitors per gorilla family per day, so booking well in advance is essential.

The experience of gorilla trekking typically begins early in the morning, with visitors meeting their guide and fellow trekkers at the park headquarters for a briefing on the rules and guidelines for the trek. The experienced guides will provide information about the behavior and conservation status of the gorillas, as well as assign visitors to a gorilla family based on their fitness level and trekking experience.

The trek to locate the gorillas can take anywhere from one to four hours, depending on the location of the family and the difficulty of the terrain. Visitors should be prepared for a challenging hike that may involve steep slopes, thick vegetation, and muddy trails. It is recommended to wear comfortable hiking shoes, long pants, and a long-sleeved shirt to protect against scratches and insect bites. Trekkers may also want to bring a walking stick, gloves, and a backpack with snacks and water.

Once the gorilla family is located, visitors will spend one hour in their presence, observing them from a safe distance of about 7 meters. The gorillas are habituated to human presence and are generally indifferent to visitors, providing a rare and intimate wildlife encounter. Visitors can watch the gorillas eating, playing, grooming, and interacting with each other, as well as take photos and videos to capture the moment.

After the hour is up, visitors will hike back to the park headquarters, where they will receive a certificate of gorilla trekking as a souvenir. The certificate is a testament to the conservation efforts of Rwanda and the successful partnerships between the government, local communities, and conservation organizations that work to protect the mountain gorillas.

In addition to gorilla trekking, Rwanda offers other incredible wildlife and nature experiences that are worth exploring. Visitors can go on a safari in Akagera National Park, which is home to the “Big Five” (lions, elephants, leopards, buffalos, and rhinos), as well as giraffes, zebras, and antelopes. They can also hike to the top of Mount Bisoke or Mount Karisimbi, two of the eight volcanic peaks in the Virunga Mountains, and enjoy panoramic views of the surrounding landscape.

For those in France wishing to travel to Rwanda for gorilla trekking and other nature experiences, they can take a flight from Paris to Kigali International Airport.
