Details of Two Day Rwanda Gorilla Experience

DAY 1 -  KIGALI TO VOLCANOES NATIONAL PARK

You'll depart after breakfast for the drive to Rwanda's second largest city, Musanze. With a backdrop of the five towering Virungas volcanoes, Musanze will be your final stop of the day for dinner and a night's sleep.

If time allows, you can participate in optional local activities such as a visit to the Iby Iwacu Cultural Village or the Musanze caves.

DAY 2 - GORILLA TREKKING

After an early breakfast at your hotel, you'll proceed directly to the Volcanoes National Park's headquarters to meet your guides. After completing the briefing, you'll embark on the once in a lifetime experience of tracking the enigmatic mountain gorillas.

There is no guarantee how long or difficult your tracking experience will be as it depends on where the family of gorillas is and on weather conditions, It can take anywhere from two up to six hours of trekking through the mountain forest at relatively high altitudes. Fitness is definitely recommended for those wishing to undertake the excursion.

One of the most memorable experiences you're likely to ever have, you'll be allowed an hour of close contact with the gorillas once you've found them. You'll be privileged enough to come within mere metres of a family of these rare and beautiful animals, observing their family dynamics and getting to learn a bit about each gorilla's distinct personality in serene silence.

Once your time with the gorillas is done, you'll return to Kigali.
