Detailed itinerary.

Day 1: Transfer from Kigali to Volcanoes National Park

You will be welcomed by our company representative at the airport in Kigali who will brief you regarding how you will spend the 6 days Rwanda gorillas and Ngorongoro safari. Immediately transfer to Volcanoes National Park located in the Northern part of Rwanda.

On the way to the park, enjoy incredible views of the countryside, lush plantations, Virunga mountains, local homesteads and sweeping hills since Rwanda is the renowned land of a thousand hills. Check-in at the lodge just outside the park.

Day 2: Gorilla trekking in Volcanoes National Park.

Rwanda is one of the three mountain gorilla destinations in the whole world, in addition to Rwanda and D.R. Congo. Trekking the gorillas starts very early in the morning after delicious breakfast. Later drive to the park headquarters where trekking starts with briefing session.

Trekking mountain gorillas in Rwanda can last from 30 minutes to 7 hours depending on movements of these great apes. If you are not physically fit to carry heavy bags, you can hire porters to help you carry at about 10-15$.

No matter the many hours you will spend in search of these gorillas, you are given only one hour in their presence as you watch them feed young ones, groom each other, play especially the infants and other behaviors.

Note that Rwanda mountain gorilla permits are the most expensive and if you are interested in a luxury gorilla trekking safari then Rwanda is worthwhile.

Day 3: Kigali city tour and fly to Tanzania.
