Rwanda Luxury Safari Tours

Rwanda is a land of mystery, resilience, and untold beauty. Our journey begins in the shadows of Volcanoes National Park, where the misty mountains hide secrets that only the bravest dare to uncover. With each step, we venture deeper into the forest, guided by the whispers of our expert trackers, until suddenly, there they are—majestic mountain gorillas, peering through the foliage with curious eyes.

Rwanda is one of the few places in the world where travellers can embark on a unique adventure known as “gorilla naming ceremony.” Each year, Rwanda hosts the Kwita Izina ceremony, inspired by the traditional Rwandan naming ceremony for newborns. During this event, newly born mountain gorillas in Volcanoes National Park are given names as a way to celebrate and raise awareness about gorilla conservation efforts.

A Tour Sokoni Rwanda Gorilla tour is comprehensive and will reveal the country authentically, showing you the history and the future of the country. Tour Sokoni presents will give you more than a Gorilla tour. You will experience the churches that have been converted to places of remembrance for those who died in the 1994 genocide and the and the Kigali Genocide Memorial, which has welcomed travelers from around the world to pay their respects.

Rwanda like Uganda is also home to the endangered mountain Gorilla.

How can I contribute to the survival of Gorilla Species in Uganda?

Besides the Volcanoes National Park the houses Gorillas, what other national parks are worth visiting in Rwanda?

Besides Volcanoes National Park, Nyungwe Forest National Park and Akagera National Park are also must-visit destinations. Nyungwe offers chimpanzee trekking and canopy walks, while Akagera is offers a promise of seeing the Big 5 (lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard, and rhinoceros).

Can I touch a gorilla during my trek

Touching the gorillas during your trek is strictly forbidden. It’s essential to maintain a safe distance from the gorillas to ensure the well-being and safety of both the gorillas and yourself. While curious creatures, gorillas are still wild animals, and any attempt to touch them can provoke defensive behaviour. It’s crucial to adhere to this rule to ensure a safe and respectful experience for both visitors and the gorillas.

Can a private viewing be arranged with only myself, the guides, and the gorilla?

No. Private gorilla viewings are not offered due to conservation regulations and the need to minimise disturbances to the gorillas and their natural habitat. Gorilla trekking experiences are usually conducted in small groups with a maximum of 6 visitors for one hour per gorilla family, per day. With such a limited time private Gorilla viewing experiences are not possible.

Will I need vaccination before travelling to Uganda?

A yellow fever vaccination is only required to enter Rwanda if you are arriving from, or have transited through, a yellow fever-endemic area in South America or Africa, including East African countries such as Kenya and Uganda. The CDC and WHO each provide a current list of all affected countries. The requirements and enforcements of yellow fever vaccinations to enter Rwanda are subject to change without notice. As a result, it is prudent to be vaccinated and carry your International Certificate of Vaccination with you, even during times when online sources may indicate it is not required.
