Detailed Itinerary

Day 1: Arrival Kigali Airport – Kigali City Tour – Visit Hotel Rwanda

Arrive at Kanombe Kigali Airport. Meet and greet by our Bic Tours driver guide and transfer to your accommodation in Kigali.

Hotel Des Mille Collins is in Kigali City. From the inspiration of Rwanda’s fascinating terrain, this hotel’s name mimics the country’s tagline, “the land of a thousand hills”. The Hotel is most famous for having opened its doors to over 2,000 Rwandans in 1994 during the terrible genocide against the Tutsis. Awesome food featuring both Rwandan and international cuisine, incredible views of Rwanda’s many hills are maxed by a décor of art and a sense of lavishness.

After an early breakfast, depart for volcanoes national Park arriving in time for pre-trekking briefing at RDB office in Kinigi where the pre-trekking briefing on the different do’s and don’t’s for you’re a gorilla trekking safari in Rwanda take place for all tourists on Rwanda Gorilla Safaris. With park ranger guides, embark on your golden monkey trekking in the bamboo zones of Volcanoes national Park. Return in time for your lunch at the Lodge.

In the afternoon we will head out for a visit in the Iby’iwacu Cultural Village to experience firsthand a taste of the fascinating Rwandan culture; the traditional lifestyles, activities, the famous dances and artifacts of the people of Rwanda. This will also be an opportunity to support the community as an incentive to encourage them to protect the mountain gorillas and their habitat. This is a project that has been developed by members of the community for the community. We will then return to Mountain Gorilla View Lodge for dinner.

Mountain Gorilla View Lodge is located right at the edge of Volcanoes National Park and is only a 10 minutes’ drive from the entrance to the home of the mountain gorillas in Rwanda where Gorilla Safaris in Rwanda start. The lodge sits right at the foothills of one of the volcanoes that form the Virunga massif called Karisimbi. All the 30 chalets feature en-suite facilities and come with a bonus of a tea/coffee making machine.

Day 3: Gorilla Trekking – Volcanoes National Park

We will arise early for breakfast and thereafter transfer to the office of Rwanda Development Board (RDB) in Kinigi where the pre-trekking briefing on the different do’s and don’t’s for you’re a gorilla trekking safari in Rwanda take place for all tourists on Rwanda Gorilla Safaris. We will have made an advance Rwanda gorilla permit booking to guarantee that you can track the mountain gorillas in Rwanda.

Because it is unpredictable to know where the mountain gorillas will be on the day and therefore the hike may last for a while, we will ensure to leave with packed lunch from the lodge and enough water for the hike.

After the briefing you will be informed of the group which you will be tracking and also allocated tour guides to lead you through this out-of-the-world experience of coming face to face with the few remaining mountain gorilla individuals. The mountain gorillas are habituated and are used to daily visits by tourists. You can read more about gorilla tracking in Rwanda here.

After the gorilla trek, we will return to the lodge for dinner and an evening at leisure.
