2 Days Rwanda Gorilla Safari 

Overview

The 2 Days Rwanda Gorilla Safari is one of the best short gorilla trips in Rwanda for the limited time travellers. It is a bit relaxed compared to one day encounter and it is affordable because of its few days. The safari tour commences and ends in Kigali Rwanda offering you an opportunity to explore the rural landscapes of Rwanda with their hilly landscape that have earned it a dub as the land of a thousand hills. Having moments with the critically endangered mountain gorillas that are known worldwide to be thriving in the Virunga Massif and in the neighboring Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable National Park generate a remarkable memory of a life time.
