The history of Rwanda dates back centuries, Kigali has been a part of it for 100 years.

Day 5: Early breakfast at your Lodge. 0600 hrs: Transfer to the Volcanoes National Park HQs for registration of your gorilla trekking. 0700 hrs: Briefing by your trackers, then drive to the trail head for the start of your amazing gorilla trekking adventure.

You may hire porters here for the trek to carry your backpack and gear. This service is recommended, especially for the elderly members of the society, or during the wet weather - as they will also assist by holding your hand to ease the walking.

Your trek starts in the cultivated foothills of the Virunga’s offering stirring views in all directions. When it enters the national park, trekkers will be immersed in the mysterious intimacy of the rainforest, alive with the colorful bird calls, chattering golden monkeys, littered with fresh spoor of the mountains’ elusive buffalo and elephant. Through gaps in the canopy, the magnificent peaks are glimpsed, among the highest in Africa yet easily accessible, beckon an ascent.

Weaving through overhanging vines, moss-covered hagenia trees and giant lobelias that thrive in the tropical climate, our experienced trackers, who have spent their entire lives in or close to this forest, soon bring us up close with one of the Gorilla Families.Upon sighting the gorillas, you will stay with them for a magical one-hour as they go about their daily life, feeding, playing, resting; raising their young. Coming face to face with a giant silverback must truly be one of the greatest wildlife experiences on earth!At the end of the trek, rejoin your driver-guide for a transfer back to the lodge for freshening up and lunch. After lunch, depart and drive down the foothills of the volcanoes, on the scenic journey back to Kigali. (2.5 hrs). Everything and everywhere, sheer green and hanging on the hills. Arrive in Kigali in the late afternoon and are transferred to the Airport for the evening international flight home. Breakfast and Lunch
