Itinerary

Day 1: Kigali, Rwanda

You are welcome to arrive at any time. Transfers are included.

Spend some time exploring the city if you arrive early. It’s a pleasant, friendly place to be. Aside from the city limits, Kigali has some interesting and historical sites. We recommend booking a pre-night if you want more time to explore.

Accommodation: Hotel des Mille Collines (or similar)

Day 2 : Kigali-Volcanos National Park, Rwanda

Experience the Kigali Genocide Memorial and learn about this somber chapter of Rwanda’s history. Enjoy a local lunch at the Nyamirambo Women’s Centre before taking a walk in the vibrant Nyamirambo neighbourhood. Upon arrival at Volcanoes National Park in the afternoon, we will settle into our lodge offering stunning views of the peaks.

Volcanoes National Park is bordered by Virunga National Park in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and Mgahinga Gorilla National Park in Uganda. Among the eight volcanoes in the Virunga Mountains, five are found here. Forest and bamboo cover the park’s volcanoes and highlands (a favourite snack of gorillas). Mountain gorillas are the most famous residents here, but buffaloes, bushbucks, golden monkeys, hyenas, numerous bird species, and elephants live here as well.

Accommodation: Mountain Gorilla View Lodge (or similar)
Meals: Breakfast ,Lunch, Dinner
Included Highlight: Kigali Genocide Memorial Visit; Nyamirambo Women’s Centre, Local Lunch
Route: Kigali – Volcanoes National Park
Distance: 130 km (3h)

Day 3 : Volcanoes National Park, Rwanda

With a park ranger, trek through lush, jungle-covered hills in search of a unique and endangered species — the golden monkey. Explore this playful, curious creature’s natural habitat, followed by a visit to Dian Fossey’s Karisoke Research Center founded by National Geographic Grantee Ellen Degeneres. Enjoy immersive activities, such as a 360-degree theatre and replica of Dian Fossey’s original cabin, before meeting with some of the organization’s gorilla experts. You’ll have the chance to ask them questions about their experiences working for the world’s largest gorilla conservation organization.

Please note: Proper hiking attire must be worn.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Included Highlight: Golden Monkey Trek; Mountain Gorilla Conservation Sundowner Experience

Day 4: Volcanoes National Park, Rwanda

Join a park ranger on an unforgettable trek through the jungle to search for mountain gorillas. Depending on where the gorillas are located, these treks can vary in length and difficulty. We’ll return to our lodge for lunch, then visit a local village to see how rural life is lived.

There are approximately 800 mountain gorillas in the wild today. Rwanda, DRC, and Uganda are home to these animals. In DRC and Rwanda, gorillas live in similar ecosystems/areas. Those gorilla species are known as highland gorillas.

Gorilla family visits in Rwanda are conducted once a day, with a maximum of eight trekkers per group, and the duration of a visit is limited to one (1) hour with the gorilla family. The time spent with them is limited due to conservation considerations and to minimize impact on the day-to-day life of the gorilla family you are visiting. You never know how long your trek will be, so it’s important to be well prepared. Depending on the location of the gorillas, which are constantly moving, the duration of a trek can vary between 4 and 9 hours. Apart from the occasional buffalo or elephant trail, you will mainly walk where there are no paths.

You are not allowed to touch the gorillas (although they may touch you in some cases). Loud noises and sudden movements are also prohibited. In general, you should keep a distance of 7m from the gorillas, but they are unaware of this and may get very close to you; if this happens, slowly move away. Follow the instructions of the trackers and rangers at all times.

There is an approximate charge for porters of $10USD per person. In addition to carrying your day pack, the porters can provide you with a welcome hand over difficult spots. Even the fittest of people can be affected by some tracks’ mud and elevation if they don’t hire a porter. In addition, it provides employment and supports the local economy.
