This Real Year of 2014 November after Contracting various Car Rental Companies in Rwanda about Self Drive Gorilla Safaris To Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda and their response was Positive that these Car Rental Agencies Could Book for us the Mountain Gorillas Permits for Gorilla Trekking in Rwanda after we had the great Plan to cross to Uganda by Private Means by Hiring a Bus from Kigali to Kampala.
This is among the most requested packages in Rwanda. It can include golden monkey or not. Golden monkeys are also endangered species which are rarely found elsewhere except in Virunga massif. In Rwanda you can track them in volcano national park.
In this same forest, for people doing 2 days Rwanda gorilla trek can also include Dian Fossey grave hike. Dian Fossey was an American who volunteered her life to study gorillas as well as fighting for their protection. She was murdered inside her cabin which she had put on the karisoke hill.
It is believed that, the poachers are the ones who murdered her because she was against that activity in Volcano national park.
If it was not the work of Dian Fossey, the gorillas would go into extinct. 3 days gorilla tracking package can also include a city tour where by a visitor visit genocide memorials can like Gisozi, Nyamata and Ntarama, local markets, craft shops and many more.
The gorilla permit in Rwanda cost $750 USD and the activity is done in the group of eight people. Each gorilla group is visited by one group per day. Since the gorilla permits are on high demand, it advised to book the permit in advance and this can be done through Tour Company like Active African vacations.
Once going for gorilla tracking, put on hiking shoes, go with rain coat or equivalent because it can rain any day while up on the mountains. The weather is unpredictable around virunga.
The park is best known for the Mountain Gorilla. Other mammals include: golden monkey, black-fronted duiker, buffalo, Spotted Hyena and bush buck. There are also reported to be some elephants in the park, though these are now very rare. There are 178 recorded bird species, with at least 13 species and 16 subspecies endemic to the Virunga and Ruwenzori Mountains. It is not a must that once you enter in the forest that you will encounter those species but by chance you may encounter some.
For the case of gorillas, it is 100% guaranteed to see them once you enter the national. There is no recorded incident that tourists failed to see gorillas. To ensure gorillas are seen quickly, there is always a team of rangers that go earlier to track where the groups slept and go following the pass until they find them. So they are the people who direct the guide with the visitors where the group is exactly.
