Day by Day Overview

After arriving at Kigali airport, you will be welcomed by our driver guide who will take you for a city tour to various sites in the city including the Gisozi genocide memorial site, local art, and craft market. Have lunch and then transfer to Ruhengeri in Volcanoes National Park.

As early as 6:30 am, have breakfast and then transfer to the national park headquarters for briefing before trekking. At 8:00 am you will start to hike into the forest with an armed guide following specific trails in search of the allocated gorilla family. After reaching the gorillas, you will spend an hour with and then descend back to the lodge. The time taken to meet gorillas varies between an hour and several hours depending on their movements in the forest seeking their food. The park authority allows visitors to spend maximum an hour with the gorillas.

Late in the afternoon we go for culture experience to the Ibyiwacu Cultural Village where you will be introduced to the traditional Rwanda culture through traditional dances, poems, and dressing codes among others. Alternatively head out on a nature walk.

You will have a morning breakfast and then transfer to the beautiful lakes located at the base of volcano Muhabura, close to the border with Uganda. They are surrounded by steep hills with a backdrop of the Virunga volcanic mountains. These twin lakes are great spots to visit and used to be referred to as neglected gems but things have changed and Bulera and Ruhondo are now well worth a visit. Their deep blue waters ringed by steep hills and tall waterfalls with the outlines of the nearby Virunga volcanoes provide a spectacular backdrop. Later drive back to your hotel to pack your bag and drive to Kigali international airport for your flight home
