5 Day Rwanda Safari

This itinerary includes 5 days and 4 nights in Rwanda, 2 nights are spent in Volcanoes National Park and 1 night either side is spent in the capital city of Kigali. The itinerary includes a guided city tour of Kigali, a visit to the genocide memorial center and 2 gorilla treks, but is a little more flexible in terms of arrival and departure flight planning. Whilst is Kigali, you will stay at the 5* Kigali Serena Hotel and there is a choice of accommodations in Kinigi to choose from depending on budget preferences. Again 1 gorilla trek can be substituted for a golden monkey trek if desired.

Day 1

Day 2
Kigali City Tour

Half day city tour, including the genocide museum/memorial, then we drive to Kinigi via Ruhengeri (Musanze). The road to Ruhengeri (Musanze) 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 (Musanze) 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 Gorilla View Lodge (BLD)

Day 3
Gorilla tracking day.

After breakfast, proceed to Park Headquarters and meet with excellent local guides and trackers who will give you a brief 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, this experience is commonly described as the most phenomenal natural history experience in the world. Picnic lunches are provided. it is important to take plenty of water. Cameras and smart phones are recommended to capture this unforgettable experience. Rain is unpredictable, so waterproof gear is essential including zip lock bags for cameras, as well as any other equipment and personal belongings that may need to be kept dry

Please note: plastic (e.g. carrier / shopping) bags are illegal in Rwanda.
