Description

Day 1: Arrival at Kigali  – Transfer to Musanze Province

On arrival at the Kigali International Airport (before 4 pm), our awesome rep will warmly greet and transfer you  to your accommodation in Kinigi – Musanze Province for an overnight stay.

Day 2: Volcanoes National Park

After breakfast, you will take a short drive to the Park headquarters for a briefing before setting off for mountain gorilla trekking. Once there, the park officials and guides will brief you properly on the behaviors of the mountain gorillas and inform you of the strict rules that you need to follow.

Following that you will be allocated to one of the habituated groups (& a guide) in the sector, which only welcomes 8 visitors a day to minimize behavioral disturbance and the risk of exposure to human-borne diseases.

Hiking

You will hike into the forest and once you have located the gorillas, you only have one hour to take photos, film, etc. After that you will walk back to the starting point.

Based on the information received from the trackers by your guides, the hike could take from 3 to 8 hours in altitudes exceeding 7.600 feet.

Day 3: Transfer to Lake Kivu/Rubavu

After breakfast, you will transfer to Lake Kivu where you will do an optional activity

Day 4: Return to Kigali International Airport – Departure
