Gorilla trekking in Rwanda with New Dawn associates is the very best way to get up close and personal with mountain gorillas in Rwanda in a way you’d never manage on your own. For more than 20 years, we’ve brought together people from all over the globe to create lifelong connections with the people and mountain gorillas that inhabit the Volcanoes National Park. This is your closest primate relative after all, and the better you get to know each other, the closer you get in return.

Gorilla trekking in Rwanda

Gorilla trekking in Rwanda remains Rwanda flagship tour and Africa's unrivalled primates experience. 10 habituated mountain gorilla families in Rwanda's volcanoes National Park are visited by 8 groups of no more than ten persons daily. Gorilla trekking permits are limited to 80 per day and it is best to book well in advance if you wish to get up close with a full grown silverback mountain gorilla


Rwanda Gorilla Safaris

The Virunga trans-boundary is home to the last remaining mountain gorillas and you have three optional entrances to the park - one in Uganda namely Bwindi National Park, Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda and the Virunga national Park in congo. Whatever park entrance you opt for our gorilla safaris kick off from Kigali the capital of Rwanda. Its proximity to all of the park's three points of entry makes it most ideal starting point for gorilla trekking in Rwanda, Uganda or D.R Congo.

Community based tourism

Beyond gorilla trekking in Rwanda we offer enriching tour excursions that are life rewarding to both the visitor and host member of the community. We turn tourism excursions into social action as visitors look beyond Rwanda’s traditional tourist offerings into the lives of its citizens, and perhaps even inside themselves. As the writer Maya Angelou once said, “Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends”.
