With the 3 Days Magical Rwanda Tour, you have a 3 day tour package taking you through Parc National des Volcans, Rwanda and Kigali. This Gorilla & Golden Monkey Trekking in Volcanoes National Park is a small group tour that includes accommodation as well as meals, transport and more.
Day 1: Parc National des Volcans
Your personal guide will meet you on arrival at Kigali Airport, either off an international flight, or after a safari elsewhere in Africa. Leaving the lively capital, you drive north-west through lush hills and bustling market towns for approximately 2.5 hours, to the stunning Volcanoes National Park – well known as the venue for Dian Fossey’s pioneering studies of the mountain gorillas. Overnight at Kinigi Guest House. Upgrade open to Mountain Gorilla View Lodge or Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge.
Day 2: Parc National des Volcans
Early in the morning after breakfast, meet at the park headquarters for a briefing, and then hike up into the rainforest to a troop of magnificent mountain gorillas. Each troop has its own 24-hour guard, so their location is known; you usually have an hour with them, time to sit and observe them at very close quarters indeed. Because of the very close contact between gorillas and visitors (often as little as 7m), and the risk of passing on infections which are fatal for them, travelers who are ill will not be allowed on gorilla-tracking trips. Overnight at Kinigi Guest House. Upgrade open to Mountain Gorilla View Lodge or Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge.
Day 3: Kigali
Start early on your first morning for a trip to track the golden monkeys. These primates are beautiful, endangered and more agile than the mountain gorillas. They live in bamboo thickets on the lower slopes of the mountains – and tracking them acclimatizes you perfectly to the slight altitude, before heading higher to the gorillas marking your last views of the park’s environs, drive for roughly 2.5 hours south-east back to Kigali Airport. Here your guide will drop you off to continue your journey, either home or to your next destination.
