The Volcanoes National Park is located in a small village called Musanze previously well-known as Musanze (Ruhengeri), which is very accessible by public transport from both Gisenyi and Kigali. The trip takes 2 hours, hence, you can do a gorilla tracking on the same day and then after the trek, return to Kigali. For the trekking day you will be required to be at the RDB Headquarters in Kinigi (park entrance) by 7:00 am. Therefore, if you want to trek gorillas for one day, you have to wake up very early for your journey and be on time. However, there isn’t any public transport from Musanze to the headquarters of the park at Kinigi. You will need to hire transport for the trekking day.
