ITINERARY

DAY 1 ARRIVE KIGALI,

Arrive today in Kigali, the capital of Rwanda. After checking in to your hotel, relax this evening in preparation for tomorrow’s adventure.

DAY 2 KIGALI, VOLCANOES NATIONAL PARK

After breakfast, take in the sights of Kigali on a city tour. Then transfer to your lodge, located in the foothills of the Virungas Mountains, a chain of volcanoes, which reach more than 4,500 metres tall at their highest point.

DAY 3 MOUNTIAN GORILLA TREKKING

Led by experienced trackers, today you’ll be guided on a trek through verdant forests of moss-covered Hagenia trees and Lobelias. Then enjoy one of the world’s greatest wildlife encounters as you spend an hour observing gorillas in their natural habitat. The thick bamboo provides the perfect vantage point to get an up-close and intimate look. Despite their size, these powerful primates are very peaceful and, at the end of your visit, you’ll understand what kept conservationist Dr Dian Fossey here for 18 years researching and protecting these gentle giants.
