3 Days Rwanda Gorilla Family Special

This 3 days Rwanda gorilla family special undoubtedly offers the best mountain gorilla trekking experience in Rwanda. As you may know, when you book a normal gorilla safari, you are assigned to a random gorilla family which is not the case with booking an entire gorilla family to trek. When you book a whole family, you have the chance to choose the exact family you want to trek. Some families are more fun to trek than the rest for instance the Susa Group that every trekker craves to have an experience with. Booking an entire gorilla family costs $15000 and you can visit it any number or even together with your family members. This package offers this thrilling experience to tourists.
