Itinerary

Day 1
Arrival
Meet on arrival at the airport. Transfer to the hotel in town. Overnight: Serena Kigali Hotel.
Day 2
Kigali – Kinigi - Mountain Gorillas
After an early breakfast at 4.30, leave Kigali at 5.00 for a 2 hour-drive to arrive at Kinigi as the first light of dawn breaks through the curtain of mist clinging to the summits of Karisimbi, Bisoke, Sabyniyo, Gahinga and Muhabura. Meet the park authorities and make our way into the Parc National des Volcans. Tracking the gorillas through the unique vegetation can take several hours of challenging walking in wet and muddy conditions. To see a gorilla, the trek will have been worth the hardship. Overnight at Virunga Lodge.
