Day 1: Arrival and Transfer to Volcanoes National park
On this day, 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 driver from Kigali city to Musanze province. Connect to your lodge in Ruhengeri for relaxation, dinner and overnight stay. Sabyinyo silverback lodge (luxury), Le Bambou Gorilla lodge (Midrange), Hotel Muhabura (budget)
Day 2: Gorilla trekking and return to Kigali
After early morning breakfast, you will be transferred to the park headquarters in 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. However meeting them 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 and a transfer for lunch and refresh at your lodge. Later connect back to Kigali city. The driver will either drop you off at where you will be staying in Kigali or proceed and drop you at the airport for your ongoing flight back home.
