Tracking mountain gorillas in Rwanda is often described as the world's greatest wildlife encounter. But does the destination live up to the hype? We think so. Here are five reasons why.
- Gorilla trekking is exclusive.
We love exclusive experiences, and gorilla trekking permits are hard to come by, as the government strictly limits visits to minimize human impact on the population. Lodging is likewise in high demand. The good news? Micato can make your clients' arrangements with ease!
- Luxury lodging amid volcanoes.
In and around majestic Volcanoes National Park are quality accommodations including the stylish cottages of Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge, the privately-terraced bandas on Virunga Lodge, the eco-friendly, otherworldly treehouses of Bisate Lodge, and Singita Kwitonda Lodge, an eight-suite, one villa property opening in 2019.
- It's more than gorillas.
Yes, it's worth going just for the gorillas, but the transformed nation of Rwanda is a vibrant, show-stopping success story, worthy of a visit in it's own right.
- It's part of a perfect African journey.
Rwanda and the exclusive gorilla trek is the perfect complement to one of our scheduled or Bespoke East Africa departures.
- Gorilla photobombing.
Come on, look at this photo. We bet you have clients who'd love to be photobombed by a 400 lb silverback gorilla.
