3 Days Rwanda Gorilla Safari – Volcanoes NP

As you travel to the home of mountain gorillas in the Virunga volcanoes, enjoy the scenery of “the thousand hills.” Gorilla trekking is a satisfying experience – you spend up to one hour with gorillas, and get within five feet of a Gorilla. The gorillas referred to as gentle giants because they are not aggressive in spite of their massive size.

Gorilla trekking experience is unique and on many peoples bucket list. Its an experience you can hardly explain to someone because they have to come face to face with the gentle giants of the Virunga's to understand. You have an option to visit a local village or simply rest at your lodge after the morning trekking.

Day 1: Arrival for the Rwanda gorilla trekking

On arrival at the airport, welcomed by a Kagera Safaris representative and transferred to your hotel in Kigali. Explore Kigali depending on time of arrival with a visit to the Genocide Memorial, craft centers, Kandt National Museum and Belgium camp – we shall choose a few because in the afternoon we travel to Ruhengere. Have lunch in the city and proceed to the Volcanoes national park.
