Detailed Itinerary


Day 1: Arrival and transfer to Volcanoes National Park

Upon arrival at Kigali International Airport, you will be met by our driver/guide.

Depending on your time of arrival, your driver/guide will take you on a Kigali city tour which includes the Genocide Memorial Centre.

Later, you will be driven to Musanze near Volcanoes National Park where you will have dinner and an overnight stay. The journey to Volcanoes from Kigali is about 2 hours long.

Accommodation: Le Bambou Gorilla Lodge 

Meal plan: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner


Day 2: Gorilla Trekking in Volcanoes National Park

Today is the big day! Prepare yourself for an encounter with the gentle giants—the endangered mountain gorillas. After your morning breakfast, you will go to the headquarters of the park, where the park rangers will brief you about the gorilla trekking experience.

You will go into the forest in groups of not more than 8 in search of mountain gorillas. En route, your guide will point out previous signs of gorilla activity such as dung, nests, and chewed bamboo shoots.

Your trek will be an exciting journey along forested slopes, entwined vines, bushes, and bamboo. Upon finding the gorillas, you will spend a maximum of 1 hour with them after which you will be led back to the starting point.

After the gorilla trekking, if time allows, you will have lunch and then go on an excursion to explore the beautiful twin lakes in the region (Lake Bulera & Ruhondo).

Accommodation: Le Bambou Gorilla Lodge 

Meal plan: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner.


Day 3: Golden monkey trekking & transfer to Kigali Airport

After your morning breakfast, you will again go to the park offices where you will start your golden monkey trek. A visit to the golden monkeys is a very different experience from going to see gorillas, the monkeys react and interact differently; they will keep on playing hide-and-seek much to the delight of the visitors.

There are two habituated golden monkey troops that are available for visits. The largest troop has about 80 to 100 monkeys. 

In a group of not more than eight people, you will trek for the monkeys and spend an hour with them once you find them. You might have to follow them around because they love jumping from tree to tree.

In the afternoon, you will be driven back to Kigali for your flight back home.

Meal plan: Breakfast & Lunch
