Detailed safari itinerary


Day 1: Arrival and transfer Volcanoes National Park

Day 2: Visit gorillas for the first time and twin lakes tour (Burera and Ruhondo)


After breakfast, go for a briefing at the park offices in Kinigi which will help you to get familiar with the forest and its inhabitants. You will be assigned with only one gorilla family out of 10 gorilla families to trek 9n this day depending on which you booked.

Day 3: Second gorilla trekking experience and Ibyiwachu community tour


Wake up and have your breakfast and then head back to the office for the same program you attended the previous day. This time you will trek another gorilla family but you are advised to hire the porter to help you carry the luggage and these porters are normally students or reformed poachers.


After this experience, head to the lodge for lunch followed by visiting the unique Rwandese culture that will entertain you through the traditional dances and music, story tales, and made crafts among others.


Day 4: Head back to Kigali and fly home


Enjoy a leisurely breakfast as you prepare to depart back home. The driver-guide will take you to Kigali on a lazy drive and this will take about 3 hours and be dropped at the airport which will mark the end of this 4 days gorilla tour in Rwanda.
