Day 1: Arrival and Transfer to Volcanoes National park
Upon arrival at Kigali Airport or depending on your location in Kigali city, you will meet our company representative/ guide who will transfer you to home of the endangered mountain gorillas-Volcanoes national park. This is a 2-3 hours drive from Kigali city to Musanze province. Connect to your lodge in Ruhengeri for relaxation, dinner and overnight stay at Sabyinyo Silverback lodge/Da Vinci Gorilla lodge/Kinigi Guesthouse.
Day 2: Gorilla trekking experience
After early morning breakfast, you will be transferred to the park headquarters (kinigi) for a briefing about the endangered mountain gorillas from the park warden. Along with your trekking gear, drinking water and packed lunch, the driver will drop you off at the starting point to trek the gorillas together with the ranger guides. This activity may take between 1-8 hours searching for the gorillas depending on their movement. Meeting the gorillas is so rewarding and you will spend maximally 1 hour with them as you take time studying them and taking pictures and videos. After spending your time with the fascinating mountain gorillas, return to the base and meet your driver to return to your lodge for lunch and refresh, dinner and over night as above.
Day 3: Return to Kigali
After breakfast at leisure, drive back to Kigali city and take time to visit the Kigali genocide site and craft shops. The driver will later drive you to the airport to find your scheduled flight back home.
