Day by Day Overview
Our safari guide will be waiting on your arrival at Kigali International Airport to welcome you to Rwanda and transfer you to the hotel close to Volcanoes National Park. You will have lunch en route in a decent roadside restaurant with scenic views of beautifully tilled hills in the background. You will arrive at the hotel early evening and the views of the tempting mist covered hills will increase your gorilla trek adrenaline and the start of your memorable Rwanda safari.
Wake up with the first morning light, take a cup of coffee and with lunch boxes head into the park tourism offices. You meet up with the gorilla trekking team for a briefing about gorilla trekking regulations and set off into the forests. By the time you get contact with the gorilla family, you will have learnt a lot about the wilderness and entire ecosystem. Once sited you will spend approximately an hour with them and must therefore maximize your advantages of interaction with the gorillas. You will then begin your slow descent to the tourism office and then your hotel to freshen up and relax.
Enjoy your morning sleep and shake off the previous day’s gorilla trekking fatigue. You will have breakfast in the lawns facing the jungles while reliving your gorilla trek experiences. Afterwards head to Iby’Iwacu Cultural Village to meet and interact with wonderful indigenous people and experiences their life living close to mountain gorillas. Listen to their songs, dance to their music and sample their staple food. You will transfer back to Kigali city after lunch.
After breakfast take a city tour of prominent Kigali City features, including the Genocide Memorial centre at Gisozi, local markets for a feeling of indigenous Kigali residents and buy souvenir to take home. The Rwanda safari finishes with the guide dropping you off at Kigali International Airport for your outbound flight.
