Day 1 – ARRIVAL – VOLCANOES NATIONAL PARK
Meet in the morning on arrival at the airport. Visit the Genocide Mausoleum. Lunch in town.
Follow the road as it climbs to the base of the majestic volcanoes, with spectacular views across the five peaks. Continue toward Volcanoes NP.
Day 2 – MOUNTAIN GORILLAS
As the first light of dawn breaks through the curtain of mist clinging to the summits of Karisimbi, Bisoke, Sabyinyo, Gahinga and Muhabura, we make our way into the Volcanoes National Park.
Tracking the gorillas through the unique vegetation can take several hours of challenging walking in wet and muddy conditions. To see a gorilla, the trek will have been worth the hardship.
Day 3 – MOUNTAIN GORILLAS – LAKE KIVU
Trek a second time the mountain gorilla. After lunch at your hotel, continue toward Rubavu, a nice small town, located on the northern shore of Lake Kivu.
Day 4 – LAKE KIVU – KIGALI – DEPARTURE
Enjoy during the early morning hours the peaceful atmosphere of the calm and pristine waters of Africa's highest lake. Return to Kigali. Lunch and airport transfer.
