5 Day Itinerary 

Rwanda Adventures

Itinerary 2A

Day 1:
Arrive at Kigali airport, meet and greet, then transfer to hotel. If any additional services are required on this day, please ask for a separate quote.

Overnight at  a hotel in Kigali (D)

Day 2:
Half day city tour, including the genocide museum/memorial, then we drive to Kinigi via Ruhengeri. The road to Ruhengeri is sealed offering stunning scenery of the hills and valleys of this green and lush country, taking a little more than 2 hours. From Ruhengeri we have a 20 minute drive to Kinigi at the base of Sabyinyo Mountain, with excellent views of the rest of all of the Virunga Volcanoes.

Overnight at mountain lodge (BLD)

Day 3:
Gorilla tracking day. After breakfast we take a short drive to Park Headquarters and meet with excellent local guides and trackers who will give a talk on the etiquette of gorilla trekking. We then hike into the forest to where the gorillas were seen the night before and track from that point. The trekking can take from 1 to 6 hours and climb to altitudes not in excess of 7,500 feet. The terrain is rough and at times muddy. Although the hike is physically demanding the beauty of the forest and surrounding scenery make the trekking worthwhile. Once the gorillas are located all fatigue is forgotten, as the experience is often described as being the most profound natural history experience in the world. Picnic lunches are provided and it is important to take plenty of water. Cameras and plenty of fast speed film are recommended. It can rain at a few minutes notice, hence waterproof clothing is a good essential including waterproof bags for cameras and film.
Please note: plastic (e.g. carrier / shopping) bags are illegal in Rwanda.

Overnight at mountain lodge

Day 4:
Second gorilla tracking day. After gorilla trekking we drive back to Kigali.

Overnight at Kigali lodge (BLD)
