    Day 1: Pick-up from Kigali and transfer to Volcanoes National Park

    The driver-guide will pick you up from your designated address or the airport in Kigali and proceed to Volcanoes National Park, located in the north of Ruhengeri. Travel via undulating and beautiful terraced hills, showing a clear picture of the general landscape and altitude of Rwanda. You will have a relaxed evening at the lodge as you prepare for the next day’s adventure.

    • Main Destination: Volcanoes National Park (Gorillas)
    • Accommodation: Gorilla Solution Lodge, Mid-range lodge located just outside Volcanoes NP.
    • Meals & Drinks: Lunch & dinner (Breakfast not included), Drinking water (Other drinks not included).

    Day 2: Do golden monkey tracking and transfer to Bwindi impenetrable

    After a briefing, you will embark on the golden monkey tracking. The encounter starts at 7 am at the Kinigi Park headquarters where you head to the forest in search of these endangered species. The tracking experience takes about 4 hours, including a 1-hour encounter with them. You will see them roll themselves on the bamboo stems and present themselves (their shyness has been reduced through habituation). Enjoy the sights of their silver patch.

    You will then transfer to the gorilla land of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park. The drive takes you through different features to include tropical rainforests and the undulating terraced hills of Kigezi, famously known as the “Switzerland of East Africa”. Drive to the lodge for relaxation as you wait for the next day’s adventure with dinner and overnight.

    • Main Destination: Bwindi Impenetrable National Park (Gorillas)
    • Accommodation: Trekker’s Tavern Cottages, Mid-range lodge located just outside Bwindi NP.
    • Meals & Drinks: All meals included, Drinking water (Other drinks not included)

    Day 3: Gorilla tracking and transfer to Lake Bunyonyi

    Enjoy an early breakfast, then proceed to the briefing point for the highlight of your trip – gorilla trekking. It can last from 2 to 6 hours, depending on the group you are visiting. We trek through the rainforest and bamboo-covered slopes, accompanied by a Uganda Wildlife Authority guide and other trackers in search of a mountain gorilla family. The walking can sometimes be tough and long, but when you catch a glimpse of the magnificent silverback, any discomforts will be quickly forgotten. Due to the nature of the activity, you will have a packed lunch. Afterward, you will drive through the terraced hills to Lake Bunyonyi.

    Besides canoeing, there is a short list of optional activities like swimming (safe in this lake) and hiking on some of the island trails along the lakeshores. You can also go on community walks and meet the local people while listening to the small resident and exotic bird species singing. You will head for dinner and overnight at Bunyonyi Rock Resort.

    • Main Destination: Lake Bunyonyi (Uganda)
    • Accommodation: Lake Bunyonyi Rock Resort, Mid-range resort located in or near Lake Bunyonyi

You will transfer to Kigali city with the memory of the great, rare mountain apes. Enjoy an en route lunch, and arrive late in the evening to be dropped off at your hotel or the airport as you say farewell to the “Pearl of Africa”.
