Exquisite and evocative, East Africa's mountain gorilla troops always dance to their own beat. Each is different, and showcase contrasts in size, social structure, behavior, and emotion. On this luxury gorilla trekking safari, you will visit three distinctive troops in Uganda's Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and Rwanda's Volcanoes National Park. With luxurious accommodation perched high above the canopy, this is an immersive 7-night itinerary full of gorilla subtleties and complexities.
Volcanoes National Park – The Terraced Beauty of Rural Rwanda
Terraced hills roll across Rwanda and fill the landscape with a complex array of greens. Women in colorful wraps add further hues as their vibrancy further lightens up the panorama. Roads undulate through the terraces to paint a portrait of rural East Africa in its quintessence. You will be greeted at Kigali International Airport, and it's a picturesque two to three-hour transfer to Volcanoes National Park and your luxurious lodge. Perched above the canopy to gaze down on the ripples of mist, the lodge exudes a pleasant air of serenity and is a place that is quick to help you reenergize after the flight to East Africa.
