Detailed Trip Itinerary

Day 1: Transfer from Kigali to Goma Border Town in Rwanda

You will be picked by the driver/guide and transferred to Goma at the Uganda-Rwanda border; a journey that will take you through a scenic view of beautiful Rwanda’s rolling hills passing via Ruhengeri in the northern part of Rwanda and continuing to Gisenyi. We shall finalize the border arrangements and cross into Congo DRC.
Dinner and overnight stay at your lodge or hotel

Day 2: Gorilla Trekking in Virunga National Park.

After morning breakfast, drive to the Park Headquarters to be briefed about gorilla tracking dos and don’ts before setting off into the forest to track gorillas in Parc National des Virunga of Congo for the incredible experience. In the course of searching for the Mountain Gorillas, you will be exposed to excellent birding and primates such as the Golden Monkeys, Blue Monkeys, Black and White colobus monkey, and giant forest hogs among others.

You will stay with these beautiful primates for one hour for observation and photography. Gorilla tracking through the forest, hills, and swamps can be tough, arduous, and tiring, sometimes taking up to 8 hours in the forest. But coming face to face with the great primates is well worth the effort. Return to your lodge/hotel for dinner and overnight stay.

Day 3: Transfer Back to Kigali.

After your relaxed breakfast, set off for Kigali in Rwanda. On your way to Kigali, several stops will be made to admire the amazing scenery of Rwanda’s topography, photography, and shopping from the local markets. Reach Kigali in the afternoon, and in case your departure flight is on schedule, transfer to the airport for your flight to the next destination.

Know More About Virunga National Park:

Located in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, Virunga is one of the world’s most biodiverse treasures and Africa’s oldest National Park. It’s home to more mammal, bird, and reptile species than any other protected area on the planet – including three extraordinary taxa of Great Apes.

The Park abounds with breathtaking sights – dense jungles, vast bubbling lava lakes, wide savannah plains, and glacier-clad mountains. Designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1979, a visit to Virunga is an experience unlike any other. For those seeking to encounter exceptional wildlife and landscapes, Virunga offers an unparalleled experience.

Of the few remaining places left in the world to see endangered mountain gorillas, Virunga National Park stands as the most unique. Living peacefully on the forested slopes of the Park’s volcanoes, mountain gorillas are highly intelligent, good-natured, and fascinating to observe.

The Park also offers a range of accommodations for those looking to relax and unwind amongst stunning views.
