4 Days - Bwindi, Lake Bunyonyi and Queen Elizabeth
DAY 1: Kigali to Volcanoes National Park – Rwanda
Landing at Kigali (Kanombe) International Airport, our guide is there to welcome you to Rwanda and transfer you up north to Ruhengeri and Kinigi.
Leaving the capital city of Kigali, we drive north for about three hours to reach Ruhengeri (now called Musanze). Musanze city is the closest travel hub to Volcanoes National Park, one of the best places in Africa to see mountain gorillas in the wild.
Our scenic journey takes us through the rolling hills and lush landscapes of northwestern Rwanda to our accommodation in Ruhengeri. Sit back and watch people go by whilst enjoying dinner.
Included meals: Lunch & Dinner DAY 2: Volcanoes National Park Gorilla Trekking – Rwanda
Today is the day for your once-in-a-lifetime experience of tracking mountain gorillas in the Virunga Mountains of Rwanda. In the early morning we have breakfast and then drive to the Volcanoes National Park Headquarters near Kinigi. First, the rangers give you a briefing on the gorilla trekking procedures and then we set off into the mountains.
The trek can take up to eight hours, but seeing the endangered African mountain gorillas in the wild is worth the effort. Walking through swamps and forests, up hills and into valleys, can be tiring and challenging, so come prepared for the trek.
Once we locate a group of gorillas we stop and spend some time with these gentle primates. Watch the largest primates in the world as they groom, feed and interact with each other in their natural habitat. Coming face-to-face with a group of gorillas is one of the most special and rare wildlife encounters on earth!
After our close encounter with these great apes we trek back to the start of the trail and return to our accommodation. We have dinner and relax, taking it easy after our exhilarating day of gorilla trekking.
Included meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner DAY 3: Volcanoes National Park – Rwanda
On day three we return to Volcanoes National Park (Parc National des Volcanoes) early in the morning, this time to track golden monkeys. These rare primates are endemic to the bamboo forests found at high altitudes in the Volcanoes National Park area. This subspecies of the Sykes Monkey is listed as endangered.
We trek to one of the two habituated troops of golden monkeys in Volcanoes National Park, each consisting of about 80 monkeys. The golden monkeys are active animals, interacting playfully and jumping energetically between the trees, which makes them fascinating to watch.
After seeing the unique golden monkeys of Volcanoes National Park we have lunch in Ruhengere and set off south to Kigali. Our drive to Kigali takes us through the scenic hills of Rwanda, stopping to admire the views along the way.
After about three hours on the road, we arrive in Kigali and check into our accommodation where we have dinner and unwind for the evening.
