Day 1: We will start our trip by picking you up from Kanombe International Airport in Kigali, Rwanda. Immediately, we will be headed north to pass the Ugandan border and reach Kisoro. Kisoro is a small town placed at the foot of the Mt. Muhavura, the tallest of the Virunga volcanoes. The town has a population of roughly thirty thousand and is considered an important trading hub between the three countries DR Congo, Uganda, and Rwanda. Our first night will be spent in a lovely hotel here.
Day 2: After an early breakfast, you will get the chance to track the endangered mountain gorillas in Mgahinga National Park. Gorilla trekking can be an all day experience because the families move freely inside the park and have to be found by the trackers every day again.
Day 3: Today, you have the choice of either setting off for a hike and climb the top of Mt. Muhavura, or You can choose to track the golden monkeys in the bamboo forest. Golden monkey tracking as an activity is found in Mgahinga National Park, only. Lake Mutanda in the north offers a great way of enjoying the nature settings of the hilly Kigezi area. If time allows, we will go on a canoe trip and visit various islands together.
Day 4: After another night in Kisoro, and after sharing our most exciting stories about the last two days, we return to Kigali, Rwanda’s capital city. The rest of the day is for you to explore this aspiring city and learn about the country’s history. We will spend our last night at a hotel in the heart of Kigali. Depending on your time of departure on day five, we can travel south and go for a canopy walk 90 feet above the forest in Nyungwe Forest.
Day 5: Day five marks the last day of our journey. After breakfast, we take you to Kanombe International Airport to meet your flight schedule back home. If your flight is scheduled to leave in the evening, we can arrange to visit the genocide memorial and also Dian Fossey’s grave.
