Hi, I'm Virunga Ecotours

Virunga Ecotours is a tour organizer company operating in Rwanda with its headquarters based in Ruhengeri/Musanze near the famous Volcanoes National Park. We organize tours to different attractions within the area and the rest of Rwanda and East Africa. Our tours will give you a deep insight into our Rwandan culture and day to day life thus allowing you to actually live the destination, not just visit it. We love to show you the wildlife in the Virunga Massif, home of the mountain gorilla. Gorilla trekking is the main attraction in this region. But there is more: hiking to the top of a volcano, golden monkeys, caves, beautiful lakes, kayaking on a river
