Trek To Dian Fossey's Grave

Gravesite%20of%20Dian%20Fossey%2C%20Rese

Trekking to the Dian Fossey Tomb is one of the most sought after safari activities carried out while visiting Volcanoes national park for a gorilla trip. The trek involves a 30 minutes drive from the park headquarters to the trail head to access the Karisoke research camp where visitors walk for 10 minutes to the park boundary.The walk from the park boundary to the research center where the Dian’s grave is, takes about an hour to 1 hour and a half hours and affords good views of forest hogs, forest elephants, a variety of primates and bird species. 

This hike
is an incredible experience physically, emotionally and intellectually. It is so inspiring to learn about someone who was so dedicated and left a legacy that exists even today. The hike involves moving through the forests and hiking up the slopes and therefore requires some relative degree of fitness and patience.

You will have an early morning wake up, have breakfast, and then drive to the Volcanoes National park headquarters we need to be there at 7:00 am to attend to a briefing and be assigned a park ranger at the park. The park rangers are usually natives of the Volcanoes national park vicinity and thus very knowledgeable about the mountain adventures.
