Will I be able to see Gorilla in a day?

This question is often asked by many wondering how this can even be possible. But the answer is yes; you can track and then after proceed to the airport for your flight. What makes it possible is the fact that Kigali International Airport is close to Volcanoes National Park and it’s a 2 hours drive on paved roads. Gorilla tracking starts at 8.30 am and so you must assemble at the park’s headquarters in time for the briefing. Our guide may talk to the rangers and you are given a close group that takes about 45 minutes, however, the experience is awesome. In case you are given a group that takes about 4-8 hours, for example, Susa group, you may have to push your flight to a later time to enable you to enjoy the experience without any worries. Remember a gorilla permit in Rwanda costs US$ 1500; you may look at it as too expensive but it is all the more breathtaking once you come across these great mountain gorillas. Catch a lifetime experience within this 1 day Gorilla trekking Volcanoes National Park.
