Kinigi Guesthouse Activities

A gorilla visit can entail anything from a 1-4 hour trek through the forest, led by experienced trackers who have spent their entire lives living in or close to the forest. Your trek will be enchanting as you weave through overhanging vines, moss-covered Hagenia trees and giant Lobelias that thrive in the tropical climate. The Volcanoes National Park, even without the gorillas, is fascinating due to its spectacular scenery. Its altitude ranges from about 2,500m to the peak of Karisimbi, at 4,500m, resulting in extensive bamboo forests, and some of the last remaining Afromontane forest habitat on the planet. Apart from the mountain gorillas, Volcanoes National Park harbours a spectacular array of rare and endangered animals and plants. There is a variety of other primates, including endemic golden monkeys, forest elephants, buffalo, giant forest hogs (Africa's largest swine), bushpigs, bushbucks, black-fronted duikers, spotted hyenas and around 200 species of birds.
