Detailed Itinerary.

Day 1: Arrival at the airport in Kigali and transfer to Volcanoes National Park.

On this first day of a 4 days gorilla safari, you will be picked up by a driver guide together with our company representative who will drive you off to Volcanoes National Park which is known for sheltering endangered mountain gorillas, a journey that takes 2-3 hours’ drive with stopovers at some key points for photography.

Take a look at the interesting scenic views of Rwanda – land of a thousand hills. Check in at your lodge for meals and rest while waiting for next day’s adventure.

Day 2: Gorilla trekking adventure.

To catch up with time, wake up early in the morning and be served your delicious breakfast and later drive to park offices for briefing. Immediately after briefing from the rangers, a ranger guide will lead you to the forest where you will start looking for these endangered mountain gorillas.

Gorilla trekking normally takes 2-7 hours following the location of these primates where they slept the previous night and as soon as you reach them, one hour will be given to be in their presence. After trekking, move to park offices to acquire a trekking certificate and drive to your lodge for dinner and overnight stay.

Day 3: Transfer to Lake Kivu.

Begin this day with a well-served breakfast at the lodge and later drive to Lake Kivu which is Rwanda’s largest lake located in the western region, a few kilometers from Volcanoes National Park.

The lake is perfect for boat trips since it has no crocodiles and hippos to interrupt your experience. The lake has good scenery, beaches, Islands, community-based activities along the shores of the lake and many more. Check-in at your lodge at the shores of lake Kivu for dinner.

Day 4: Transfer back to Kigali and fly back.

On this last day of your safari, begin with a morning meal and later head to Kigali city which takes only 3 hours / about 187 kilometers.

You can optionally visit Kimironko central market which is the oldest market in Rwanda and buy some souvenirs which will make you remember such an amazing safari. From there, drive to Kigali international airport and fly back home.
