Rwanda & Congo Mountain Gorilla Tracking, Nyiragongo Hike Safari - 6 Days

 

OVERVIEW

 

6-days Rwanda and Congo -DRC gorilla trek, with gorilla tracking in Volcanoes National Park and Virunga National Park and Nyiragongo Mountain Hiking.

This is a 6 day safari which starts and ends in Kigali, Rwanda with 2 gorilla permits (for Parc Nationale des Volcanoes and Virunga National Park in DRC), Nyiragongo trekking permit and DRC Tourist visa included.

Having a chance to see some of the last remaining 900 mountain gorillas in the world is a wonderful experience. It offers you an opportunity to track gorillas two times and thus have a totally different experience with two different gorilla families each in a very unique habitat. and later visit the Nyiragongo Volcanoes. 

Mount Nyiragongo is a spectacular stratovolcano that hosts one of the worlds largest and rarest lava lakes, making it one of Africa’s most exciting and rewarding hiking experiences.

Lava lakes are without a doubt one of the most impressive forms of volcanic activity that any outdoors enthusiast could hope to witness. Once you have reached the summit on your Mount Nyiragongo climb, you will be able to observe its bubbling lava cauldron (from a safe distance) and feel this volcano’s energy, as it heaves and breathes. An overnight stay at Mount Nyiragongo’s crater edge will allow you to enjoy this spectacle in the dark, but also at dawn and dusk when its alluring beauty is enhanced.

Mount Nyiragongo, in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo rises majestically to an altitude of 3470m overlooking the Virungas National Park and associated Albertine Rift. The climb up Mount Nyiragongo is not technically difficult and reaching the top should not take longer than 5 hours.
