What are the numbers and averages?
|For a volcano hike, this is pretty straight forward and fun to do. There are excellent views of the nearby volcanoes in both Rwanda and Uganda on a clear day, and if you’re lucky you might see a chameleon or two – or perhaps even a stray gorilla! It’s a fairly straightforward up and down route, but it’s a worthwhile enough experience if you haven’t visited Volcanoes National Park before.|

|If you’re on a budget or simply cannot justify the cost of Gorilla Tracking, there is a small but very real chance of coming across gorillas on this trail.|
|Be at the park gate at the (RDB) Rwand Tourist Information Centre (Kinigi) at 7am sharp to get your permit, although expect to be waiting around for an hour before you get going. At least there will be free coffee/tea and a song and a dance to keep you entertained.|
|Consider organising transport from Ruhengeri (Musanze) to the hike and back with Fido's Guesthouse. If you bargain hard (or are staying there as guests), you should be able to pay around RWF 50,000 for a car and driver.|
