Program

Day 1: Arrival - Volcanoes National Park

Upon arrival at Kigali International Airport (KGL), your driver guide will be waiting for you. He will then transfer you to Kigali for a city tour to Kigali Genocide Memorial Centre before proceeding to Volcanoes National Park, home to mountain gorillas. The journey takes you through the beautiful terraced hillsides that characterize much of Rwanda’s landscape. Dinner and overnight will be at Mountain Gorilla View Lodge.

  • Accommodation: Mountain Gorilla View Lodge
  • Meal plan: Lunch and dinner

Day 2: Gorilla tracking

You will have an early morning breakfast and get ready for today’s lifetime event of gorilla tracking. You will assemble at the park headquarters with packed lunch and drinking water, have a briefing about the Do’s and Dont’s while you are with the gorillas. Depending on the level of fitness, you may be asked to choose the group you wish to trek and the closest is about 2 hours or even a couple of minutes from the park boundary.

The trek is quite strenuous, so you should be able to hike for 2 - 8 hours on steep and slippery mountain trails. You will then descend to the lodge for a rest. If the evening is free, you can have a cultural tour to nearby communities or nature walk to the beautiful twin lakes of Burera and Ruhondo. Dinner and overnight will be at Mountain Gorilla View Lodge.

Kindly note that children above 15 years are allowed to trek gorillas and chimpanzee.
