PLEASE NOTE: Guests are encouraged to take approximately US 50 in cash with them when they go gorilla trekking, golden monkey trekking or hiking in Volcanoes National Park.

We strongly recommend making use of porters, as they help guests with everything from navigating slippery terrain and steep inclines to carrying backpacks during longer treks.

Community Tours 

Guests at Singita Volcanoes National Park have the unique opportunity to visit the small village of Gasura in the Kinigi sector, which is located 30 minutes from the lodge. The interactive tour takes approximately two hours and includes a range of authentic Rwandese cultural experiences. 

Taking guests from house to house in the village, this involves everything from meeting local crafters weaving baskets and carving gorilla-trekking sticks to learning how to process locally produced staples – such as stomping cassava roots and grinding sorghum for flour. It also includes visiting families in their homes to get a glimpse of the local lifestyle.
