Detailed Itinerary

You will be met by our driver/guide in Kigali at 04:30 hrs in the morning at your overnight accommodation or Airport and be transferred for a 2 hours’ drive to Ruhengeri area the second largest town in Rwanda, with its stunning backdrop of five volcanic mountains – The Virungas. Continue to Kinigi park headquarters – Kinigi to meet your guides for the day.
After completing our park formalities, we embark on a once in a life time experience of tracking mountain gorillas.
Once you spot them you are allowed to spend an hour watching these majestic giants primates. This is perhaps one of the most breath-taking wildlife experiences on earth! You get so close to these awesome giant primates.
Tracking the gorillas through the light mountain forest on the slopes of the Virunga is a magical experience. These massive primates are extremely rare, with less than 700 living today. You will get within meters of the family, and be privileged to spend an hour amongst them.

The trekking may be fairly strenuous; up to six hours or longer at a relatively high altitude. We encourage for your own enjoyment to make sure that you are perfectly fit and healthy.

It is important to bring good hiking boots, long trousers, gloves for protection against stinging nettles, some snacks & sweets (for you, not the gorillas) as well as sufficient water as the rain forest gets hot and humid during the day.

After a successful trek, you will transfer for lunch at Five Volcanoes Boutique Hotel Restaurant before embarking on your return scenic drive to Kigali Airport or to your overnight hotel depending on your next destination
