Itinerary

Day 1Kigali

On arrival in Kigali you will be met by your driver and transferred to your hotel in the city centre.

Day 2 Nyungwe Forest National Park

This morning you will head off with your driver-guide and private vehicle to Nyungwe Forest. The route takes you through rolling hills and beautiful scenery. You’ll stop in the town of Butare, Rwanda’s second largest city and the former capital, for a break at midday to visit the national museum and university before reaching Nyungwe Forest in the afternoon, ready to settle into your lodge. This is a really incredible national park, teeming with primates, birdlife and flowers.

Day 3 Nyungwe Forest National Park

Today you will set off after breakfast to meet your guide and start your trek to see the chimps – you can enjoy looking for other primates, birds and animals along the way. Your guide will teach you about tracking the chimpanzees, pointing out signs they’ve left as you head through the forest. Upon reaching them you’ll be able to see them playing and interacting in their natural habitat – an incredible sight.

Day 4Gisenyi

This morning you will drive from Nyungwe along the shore of Lake Kivu to Gisenyi – you’ll start off inland then head west, enjoying beautiful views of the lake and mountain scenery on the way. You’ll then have two nights to relax at the Lake Kivu Serena.

Day 5Gisenyi

Today is free for relaxing or exploring Lake Kivu – you can go swimming in the hotel pool, or in the lake itself, have a tour of Gisenyi town, or hire a boat to visit some of the nearby islands on the lake. You can decide on the day what you’d like to do and your driver will help you with all of your arrangements.

Day 6Ruhengeri

After breakfast you will set off for Ruhengeri at the base of the Volcanoes National Park. The drive takes around an hour and a half, and will begin with a steep incline up over the dramatic cliff-like hills which then become softer and more rolling as you continue inland. You can get settled into your room at Sabyinyo and spend the rest of the day relaxing in your room or taking a stroll around the property.

Day 7Ruhengeri

Today you will set off early after breakfast for the park headquarters for a briefing from your guide. You will then be driven to the trailhead to start your trek. Trackers leave before the tourist groups to locate the gorilla groups so your guide should know where to take you, and once you’ve found the group you will have one hour with them to take photos and watch them interact – a truly memorable experience.

Day 8Ruhengeri

This morning you will depart after breakfast for the park headquarters for your walk to see the golden monkeys – a completely different experience but just as rewarding. These beautiful, lively creatures are on the endangered list, and are fascinating to watch as they leap through the vegetation.

Day 9Departure

Return home after an amazing experience.
