We booked an extension on our Abercrombie and Kent safari to gorilla trek in Rwanda. We were advised that Thousand Hills Expedition would be taking the lead in Rwanda. We couldn't have had a better experience. Lynn, our guide and Clemens, our driver were not...More

My favorite thing to do when coming to Rwanda. A surreal experience of seeing wild mountain gorillas in their natural environment. Words cannot describe this adventure. You just have to experience it.

Usually no companies will be listing prices online for this type of tours. You will have to contact them directly by email to get a quote. I can tell you that the gorilla trekking permit alone was $750 USD in August 2016.
