One of the most liked Safaris offered in Rwanda are the Gorilla trekking Safaris. These are customized focusing to great encounters with the rarely seen Gorillas in their natural habitats.
Gorillas are among the top animals that allure travelers from different parts of the World to Africa. These apes are only found in Africa and Rwanda is one of the few countries that play home to these unique creatures.
By description, Gorillas are ground dwelling and herbivores in nature. Their food is bamboo shoot, stem, sugar canes, tree leaves and some fruits like oranges, mangoes, avocados and more.
They live groups commonly known as Gorilla families that consist of female and male adults, infants and juveniles.
Each family is led by a dominant Silverback who has numerous responsibilities such as looking for what to eat, protecting group members and construction of temporary huts for shelter.
Gorilla trekking is a highlight for any Rwandan trip, but it requires a permit which is a must buy. This permit costs $1500 USD per person and it is valid for use by one person in the respective booked dates.
