Rwanda large groups gorilla safari tours – Great adventure safaris organizes group safaris to Rwanda to see mountain gorillas with group size minimum of 4 travelers and maximum of 12 travelers however if it’s one big group of people we can do up to 78 travelers but due to the huge demand of services it’s advisable to book this safari 1.5-2 years in advance.
This safari package of 78 travelers is available for destinations of Kigali and volcanoes national park as the other attractions like Nyungwe national park and Akagera national park do not have a lot of accommodation facilities to handle 78 travellers.
It’s important to note that volcanoes national park has only 80 gorilla permits every day to see the endangered mountain gorillas.
Due to the size and capacity of Great Adventure Safaris Vehicles have a capacity of taking 7 travelers but due to the space needed for gorilla trekking guides we recommend 6 travelers so this has put our maximum number is 6 travelers per car and that becomes a closed group so basically we can hold any numbers as we keep adding a safari car so we can keep adding as follows 6, 12, 18, 24, 30, 36, 42, 48, 54, 60, 66, 72, 78 this group numbers are available on request.
