Tour Details

Day 1: Arrival at the Kigali International Airport in the morning or at midday.  You are met by our representative, outside the Arrivals Hall. After the briefing, you have lunch at a Kigali Restaurant. Enjoy a City Tour of Kigali City. Later, embark on the drive to the Volcanoes Naitional Park. Check in at the  Virunga  Lodge. Dinner and overnight at the Lodge. Full board .

Day 2:  Early Breakfast at Virunga  Lodge. 0600 hrs: Transfer to the Volcanoes National Park HQs for registration of your gorilla trekking. 0700 hrs: Briefing by your trackers, after which your driver-guide will transfer you 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!

After the trek, rejoin your driver-guide for a transfer back to your lodge for freshening up and lunch. Later, you are picked up for the afternoon drive to Lake Kivu Fresh Water Lake.
