1 Day Bisoke hiking tour package is designed for travelers on a short holiday in Rwanda however, most guests add this excursion on a gorilla trekking safari in Volcanoes national park. Tourists looking for a hike to Mount Bisoke are required to be physically fit to encounter the rough and steep edges of this Virunga volcano. We recommend travelers to hire a porter to carry extra luggage during their hike to the summit.
Mount Bisoke Volcano climbing safari can be booked by both experienced mountain climbers and beginners. Mount Bisoke is a volcano has a height of 12,175 feet and was formed as a result of earth movements around the East African Rift valley.
The summit of Mount Bisoke is in Rwanda however, other part of the mount is in DR Congo around Goma and Lake Kivu areas. Mount Visoke / Bisoke is covered by a stratum of beautiful vegetation right from the base to the summit hence forming one of the habitats for mountain gorillas of Volcanoes national park.
Hiking Mount Bisoke is not so challenging and can be undertaken by anyone who is physically fit. Travelers planning to combine gorilla tour and Bisoke hiking are advised to book at least 2 Days Volcanoes gorilla trekking and Bisoke hiking package.
