Detailed Itinerary

Day 1:Transfer to Volcanoes National Park (Gorillas)

This one-day gorilla safari in Rwanda is excellently executed when the guests are already in Kigali. Regularly, this safari begins between 4:30 am from Kigali. You will start at 4:20 am, a 2.5-hour drive to the Volcanoes National Park, the only park in Rwanda that works as a home to the mountain gorillas. Upon arrival early in the morning at Musanze, you will go to the park headquarters for briefing and shortly be guided by park rangers on how to stride looking for the gorillas in the forest. At the briefing point, gorilla families or groups for safaris are allocated; however, some guests may be given gorilla families whose hiking to reach is easy. You will enjoy some misty views of the nearby mountains up to when you will reach your hosts, the gorillas. After the trek, you will go to any of the hotels in Musanze for lunch before transferring back to Kigali, where you will arrive late in the afternoon or in the evening. This marks the end of the one-day gorilla safari.
