Gorilla Day trip from Kigali


We will be in Kigali at the end of march 2021 (3 people) and are looking for a day trip to see some gorillas in the wild, is it possible to do it in one day from Kigali? Any agencies to recommend?

thank you

    It’s definitely possible, and when I was doing research for my trip I came across a lot of tour companies who do day-trips to see the gorillas from Kigali (we didn’t end up using a tour company for that part of our trip so I can’t recommend one, but we used Kawira Safaris for another part of our trip and they were fantastic; I’m not sure if they do one-day gorilla trekking, but you can always ask them).

    It will likely be a very early and very long day, though – you have to be at the Volcanoes National Park office at 7am, and about 2+ hours from Kigali, that likely means leaving Kigali around 4 or 4:30. But should definitely be doable.
