Day 1: Kigali City Tour & Transfer to Musanze

Start historical-minded exploration of Kigali city with visits to landmarks from colonial, post-independence, genocide and post-genocide times i.e. Kigali Solaire, Stade regionale, Kigali Genocide memorial site where over 259,000 genocide victims were put to rest in mass graves, Dr. Richard Kandt Museum who was the first Germany explorer to settle in Kigali, Belgian camp where they killed the 10 Belgian UN soldiers who were protecting the moderate prime minister before the start of genocide etc. In the afternoon, you will be transferred to Bugesera to visit the reconciliation village where the survivors of genocide live together in harmony with the perpetrators that killed their own families, Nyamata and Ntarama genocide churches where thousands of innocent people were butchered in the house of God.

Accommodation: Gorilla Hotel in Musanze.

Day 2: Gorilla Tracking & Local Experiences

Early breakfast at 6 am then transfer to the park at 7 am for briefings and grouping. Optional tour of Buhanga Forest in the afternoon where all the Rwanda kings were initiated.

Volcanoes National Park:

After breakfast we transfer to the park.

After completing our park formalities, we embark on a once in a life time experience of tracking mountain gorillas.

Once you spot them you are allowed to spend an hour watching the gorillas. This is perhaps one of the most breathtaking wildlife experiences on earth!!! You get so close to these awesome giant primates.

Be back at the base in time for lunch! Some gorilla families however are more elusive and tracking can take a full day, especially when it is wet and muddy.

Accommodation: Gorilla Hotel.

Day 3: Diana Fossey Tombs

The famous American primatologist Diana Fossey started work in Volcanoes National Park in 1967 and was killed in 1985 while doing what she liked most; protecting the mountain gorillas. A visit to her tombs in the park is one of the rewarding things for her great work to save and conserve mountain gorillas.

Accommodation: Gorilla Hotel

Day 4: Climb Mountain Bisoke & Later Transfer to Kigali

After breakfast proceed to climbing of Mt Bisoke. Climb Mount Bisoke for about 6 hrs. On top there’s a Crater Lake and beautiful flora and fauna. You may get chance to see forest elephants and buffaloes as you climb or descend from the mountain. Refresh and have lunch in Musanze then drive back to Kigali.
