Volcanoes National Park is located in a small village called Musanze previously well-known as Ruhengeri, which is very accessible by public transport from Gisenyi or Kigali or from the airport. The drive to Volcanoes national park is 2 hrs.
Therefore one can do gorilla tracking on the same day and drive back to Kigali after the trek. Visitors to the park are required to arrive at the headquarters of ORTPN in Kinigi, at the park entrance, by 7:00 am. There isn’t any public transport from Musanze to the headquarters of the park at Kinigi.
