Upon your arrival, you will be welcomed by our professional tour guide who will take you for a city excursion in and around Kigali so that you are oriented about this great country with a thousand hills. After this excursion, you will proceed to Virunga National Park located in the North of Ruhengeri via indulating and beautiful terraced hills showing a clear picture of the general landscape and altitude of Rwanda.
Early morning benefit from a tasty breakfast at the lodge before your first exciting morning drive through the Switzerland of Rwanda Park full of indigenous forest for Gorilla trekking and draws one to the real side of natural beauty. The activity immerses you into the strange intimacy of the rain-forest plus a live call of colorful birds, chattering of the rare golden monkey, and littered with fresh spoor of the mountain elusive populations of buffalo and elephant. Have lunch at the lodge and later relax up at the lodge from the tiresome and exciting activity.
After breakfast, you will drive back to Kigali City and if you did not visit the genocide memorial center, you will have an opportunity to do so before transferring to the airport for your departure flight out.
What to Bring:
You must bring appropriate walking or hiking shoes as trainers are not suitable for the forest terrain. Waterproof clothing, preferably dark in colour as bright colours will attract insects, is necessary since the forest is at high altitude so there is a good chance of rain. Remember to bring high-factor sunscreen and a hat too. During your trek you will need to have plenty of water with you, so it is a good idea to hire a porter for the day. Many of the porters are kind, so, let them help you, be generous and create a job for a day!
