Day 2: Golden Monkey Excursion

Return to the entrance of the Park early this morning to see the Golden Monkeys. It is now believed the only feasible population of these Golden Monkeys resides only in Volcanoes National Park. They are beautiful and endangered primates which have become quite habituated to humans making it possible to observe them closely. After lunch at the Lodge, relax or visit the twin lakes and some local communities.

Accommodation: Gorilla Hotel

Day 3: Gorilla Tracking

Brief of the day: Early morning - Gorilla Trekking and visit Buhanga forest in the afternoon where all the Rwanda kings were initiated or Kinigi Cultural Village for traditional dances and music, bio-mimicry and traditional healing lessons.

Volcanoes National Park:

After breakfast we transfer to the park.

After completing our park formalities, we are 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 your closest long lost cousin. This is perhaps one of the most breathtaking wildlife experiences on earth!!! You get so close to these awesome giant primates. You stare at each other blankly not knowing who to break the long silence first. Tracking the gorillas through the light mountain forest on the slopes of the Virunga is a magical experience.

Be back at the base in time for a late 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 4: Community-Based Tours & Departure to Airport

Breakfast at 7am then depart from hotel to go visit villages where they show case the production of banana and sorghum beer. After that, transfer to Kigali and then dropped off at Kigali International Airport.
