Rwanda's gorilla trekking safaris are rumored as Africa's easiest gorilla trekking experiences with most of the treks typically beginning with gradual descent through the locals homes via food gardens. Sometimes the treks in Rwanda only last 30 minutes and sighting are at times right just after or within the food gardens bordering the park and the community land.
Because gorilla trekking is Rwanda's main revenue earner, their government has invested a lot of money in making sure their facilities and or infrastructure is up-to-date, they have also built sustainable conservation campaigns and programs to ensure the mountain gorilla population grows - there are only 880 individuals left in the world.
