How to trek gorillas on a budget Rwanda safari

One, Visit Volcanoes National Park to Gorilla Trekking
Among the most exciting safari adventures you will ever have, the Rwandan gorilla trek ranks high. You can get up close and personal with the endangered mountain gorillas who call Volcanoes National Park home.

It spans the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Rwanda, and Uganda as a section of the Virunga Mountains. The cost of a permit to go on a gorilla hike in Rwanda is $1,500 per person.

There is a daily limit on permits, and they sell out quickly. Make sure to book your reservations in plenty of time beforehand. Every one of the twelve habituated gorilla families in the park gets a permit. Each family has at least one silverback, some females, and some young.

Rwanda Day trips

Are budget-friendly safari options accessible in Rwanda?

Rwanda offers affordable safaris within a limited budget. However, given that the primary motive for the majority of visitors to come here is to engage in gorilla tracking, which carries a price tag of  gorilla permits US$1,500, it is fair to say that any travel plan that incorporates this highly sought-after experience cannot be considered inexpensive. However, there are many reasonably priced Rwanda budget tips available in Rwanda that prioritise alternative, less expensive activities and sites. Another option is to participate in gorilla tracking in Uganda, which is far more reasonable.

When is the optimum time to visit Rwanda for a budget  gorilla trekking adventure?

Visiting Rwanda for gorilla trekking is a year-round delight. On the other hand, gorilla sightings are most common in the dry months of June–September and December–February. During these times, you are less likely to get malaria and the weather is much more bearable for hiking than it is during the rainy season. Visiting mountain gorillas during the lengthier rainy season (March–May) is challenging due to the continuous and heavy rain. Trails in the forest aren’t always dry and safe. Discounts on gorilla permits are available during the rainy season, which is also the low season for trekking gorillas.

The palace is now a museum where visitors can go to learn about the events leading up to the genocide and the kind of life lived by president Habyarimana.

Local Dance Performances

The easiest way to know the culture and traditions of the people of Rwanda is by watching a performance by an Intore Dance Troupe which is organized by good hotels to enjoy evening dance performances for guests as they relax. The quality of the Intore Dance is measured by the excitement, energy and grace of the performers.

This park has 10 habituated gorilla groups and only 8 people may track a particular group in a day.  Trekking in volcanoes national park starts with a briefing at 7am from the park’s office and from there, visitors are taken out to track different gorilla groups in the company of armed Rangers.

Milk Bars

The Banyarwanda have a long history of raising cattle and their long-horned cattle are similar to the one seen in Ankole (Uganda). Drinking fresh milk for breakfast is very popular in Rwanda and some even suggest that it is the reason why Rwanda has so many beautiful women. There are milk bars in every part of the country. Milk is received from cow farms in city suburbs and the countryside and the Kigali Milk Bar is excellent for those who want to enjoy the milk fresh or hot, during your budget Rwanda safaris, you can also take part in the exercise.

Chimpanzee Trekking in Nyungwe National Park

 In Nyungwe forest, Rwanda has one of the oldest afro-montane forests in Africa. This forest is found in the South Western part of the country and is a home to 13 species of primates including chimpanzees. Nyungwe forest is one of the last strongholds of the Angola Colobus and Golden Monkeys and visitors have over 15 trails to choose from for a nature walk or chimpanzee tracking.

Kigali Convention Center: 

This Center is one of the most prominent buildings in Kigali. Its architecture is very impressive but what makes it well-known is that it is where most of the major conferences/meetings are held. Apart from the conference hall, the facility also has a 5-star hotel known as Radisson Blue and large shopping centers. The Kigali Convention Center is excellent for photography, shopping or as a place to have lunch. The Center lights up during the night in a way that is second to no building in the country.

Golden Monkey Tracking

 Rwanda is one of the last strongholds for golden monkeys and the beautiful monkeys thrive in the Virunga ranges and in Kahuzi Biega National Park of the Democratic Republic of Congo. Golden monkeys are endangered and because of that are highly protected. Although eagles are their natural prey, humans are their greatest threat. Tourists love golden monkeys because of their beautiful gold coats, playful nature and endangered status. 

Visit the Tomb of Dian Fossey

Dian Fossey is one of the greatest primatologists of the 20th Century who was a pioneer in gorilla research and conservation with funding from National Geographic. Fossey studied the behavior of mountain gorillas extensively for 18 years and discovered many things about them including how to habituate them. After tracking gorillas, many tourists choose to visit her former research center and tomb. Both sites are located on the slopes of mount Karisimbi and Bisoke and getting to the tomb requires some level of fitness because it involves hiking up the mountains. The Dian Fossey Hike permit costs $80 per person.


Rwanda is an excellent birding destination with over 640 bird species and 30 of them are endemic to the country. Birding in Rwanda is organized at Akagera National Park, Nyungwe National Park, and the Volcanoes National Park and around Lake Kivu. Other birding spots include the suburbs in Kigali and various smaller water-bodies, wetlands/swamps, marshlands and agricultural plantations.

Tea Plantations 

Rwanda is known for exporting some of the finest tea and coffee in Africa and it is the leading export of the country while the quality of the coffee has won many international awards. Coffee and tea farming is aided in part by the fertile volcanic soils, high altitudes and good weather in the country. Coffee and tea plantation tours can be organized for tourists who are interested in learning about how the two cash crops are grown and processed.

Musanze Caves 

These ancient caves are found in Musanze district outside the Volcanoes National Park. The caves were opened to tourism in 2013 after undergoing rehabilitation which involved building staircases and paved trails. They are about 2km long and were formed from lava flows over 60 million years ago, around the time when the East African Rift Valley was formed. There are about 32 entrances with the main entrance about 10 kilometers wide. 

Climbing Mount Bisoke

 Mount Bisoke isn’t the tallest volcano in Rwanda but what makes it the most popular volcano is its easy way to hike. It takes only one day to get to the summit and back and getting to the summit rewards hikers with an opportunity to explore a giant crater and also gaze at the other Virunga volcanoes and the volcanoes National Park.

Congo Nile Trail

 The Congo Nile trail is a new addition by the government of Rwanda as it diversifies the tourism attractions in the country. The Congo Nile trail is 140 miles long and can be traversed using a motorcycle, bike or on foot and if you decide to walk, it may take 10 days to cover the entire trail.

The National Museum of Rwanda

It is a favorite stop for tourists visiting Nyungwe Forest National Park for opportunities to learn about the culture of the Banyarwanda. The museum’s 7 galleries showcase photos, cultural tools and ancient artifacts dating over 500 years.


The best time to visit Rwanda is during the dry seasons from June to September and December to February. These drier periods give ideal trekking conditions for mountain gorillas and chimpanzees with little to no mud, especially on steep paths. Although Rwanda features several seasons which should be considered when planning a safari here, the weather is fairly temperate and favors travel all year round due to its compact size proximity to the equator and high altitude. However, many safari-goers will head to Rwanda during these months, so often the best time to go can be based on permit-availability. That being said, don’t be put off by the rainy season in Rwanda either

On what kind of budget can I go on a safari in Rwanda?”

Volcanoes, Nyungwe, and Akagera are the three major national parks in Rwanda; each is unique and should be on every safari visitor’s must-see list. While treks to see the gorillas are the park’s most popular feature, visitors may also enjoy golden monkeys and reasonably priced hikes to the volcanic Virunga Hills. While all five of the Big Five inhabit Akagera National Park’s savanna, grassland, and wetland environments, chimpanzee trekking, monkey sightings, and forest bird watching have made Nyungwe National Park famous. Beautiful Lake Kivu, which borders the Congo to the east, is another must-see attraction in Rwanda, especially for those on a tighter budget. The popular and inexpensive Congo Nile Trail, which runs parallel to the eastern lakeshore for 160 km/100 mi, is here, and active travellers can kayak, cycle, or walk along one or more segments. For anyone intrigued by Rwandan culture and history, there is a wide array of community-based cultural programmes in the Kivu hinterland. Additionally, Kigali, Huye, and Nyanza provide a variety of more formal metropolitan museums and monuments. 

What sort of car can I anticipate?

Budget safaris in Rwanda typically use a Land Cruiser, Land Rover, or other comparable high-clearance 4×4 vehicle. This is not due to any problem with trunk roads; they are usually well-maintained and surfaced. On the other hand, you might need high clearance and 4x4s for the internal roads in Akagera NP, the last approach roads to specific trailheads in Volcanoes and Nyungwe NP, and so 

How will you accommodate me during budget rwanda safaris 

You can expect to stay in reasonably priced guesthouses, motels, or hostels on a Rwanda budget safari. Typical amenities include mosquito nets, private bathrooms with hot showers and toilets, and pleasant, albeit unremarkable, lodging. The tour fee typically includes meals, and since your hotel is typically located slightly away from an urban area, you’ll likely eat there as well. Some excursions, though rare, may use campgrounds.4 What is the optimal amount of time to visit Rwanda’s top attractions? Spending two nights in each of the three main national parks is possible on a seven-day safari. You might use that time to go on chimpanzee tracking in Volcanoes National Park, a canopy walk in Nyungwe National Park, and game drives in Akagera National Park. A more reasonable estimate would be 8–10 days if you intend to engage in additional activities such as golden monkey trekking in Volcanoes National Park or exploring the Lake Kivu region. On the other hand, if you’re not planning on seeing every national park, a three-day visit will suffice for one park, or a five-day vacation for two. A two- or even a one-day safari departing from Kigali will suffice if gorilla trekking is your sole goal.

 How much is the safari going to cost?

Any Rwanda budget tour that emphasises national parks but excludes gorilla trekking will likely cost around US$300 to US$400 per person per day. Make sure to inquire ahead of time if this price covers everything, as it typically covers transportation, park and activity fees, lodging, meals, and the services of drivers and guides. The tour price will go up a notch if you want to track gorillas in Volcanoes National Park because there is a fixed trekking permit fee of $1,500 per person. Operators providing affordable safari packages from Kigali frequently cross the border into Uganda to chase gorillas, despite the fact that permits cost US$600. On rare occasions, low-cost safaris would venture into the DRC, home of the gorilla trekking permit that costs US$400 at Virunga National Park. Security concerns have forced Virunga National Park to close to tourists on multiple occasions because of the persistent political instability in the area.

Uganda and Rwanda provide a remarkable opportunity for budget-conscious travelers to participate in an exhilarating  budget safari expedition. These East African nations are well-known for their stunning landscapes, abundant biodiversity, and exceptional wildlife experiences. Opting for an affordable safari in Uganda and Rwanda enables you to discover the marvels of the area while effectively managing expenses, making it an excellent option for anyone in search of a genuine and reasonably cheap   African vacation trip.

Uganda, known as the “Pearl of Africa,” is the habitat of renowned animal species such as the rare mountain gorillas that are found in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and Maghinga Gorilla National Park. In addition, the country is home to several other national parks and reserves, including Queen Elizabeth National Park and Murchison Falls National Park.
