This three-day Gorilla trekking safari takes you through Volcanoes National Park, one of Africa's most popular tourist sites. This is one of Rwanda's most frequented national parks, located in the northern section of the country at the base of the massive Virunga Mountains. It is home to a quarter of all Mountain Gorilla species, who can be found napping, feeding, and playing in the bushes. It's a two-hour drive to get to where the Gorillas' noises and eyes may be viewed up close. You will get access to the nicest accommodations, breakfast, lunch, and dinner, as well as skilled hospitality.

Detailed Trip

Day1: Kigali to Volcanoes National Park-Musanze cave exploration

This trip to the heart of the jungle, home to the world's largest primates, is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Because only a few people will be allowed to participate, it will begin at the agreed-upon pickup time and location, which might be either Kigali International Airport or Kigali city. We are adaptable enough to accommodate your needs and provide you with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. The guide will give you an overview of what to expect during your stay in this lovely country before taking you on a two- to three-hour journey to the country's northern region. Along the trip, you'll notice the lush vegetation, locally built dwellings, and happy inhabitants waving their arms endlessly. Arrive at your lodge for lunch before heading to the Musanze caverns for a cave excursion. Musanze Cave is unique in that it is both safe and spacious, and it is home to bats. Following the one-hour tour, you'll return to the resort for dinner and a relaxing sleep.

Day2: Gorilla trekking

After a sunrise breakfast at the lodge, you'll go to the park headquarters for a pre-trekking briefing with other Gorilla fans. The ranger guide will go over the dos and don'ts of gorilla trekking, as well as the distinctive Gorilla mannerisms and lives. Gorillas are the world's largest primate species and can only be found on the African continent. Because they have approximately 98 percent human-like genes, they are shy, polite, and attractive. These creatures spend the better part of the day traveling and feeding, which is why tracking and watching their movements, gigantic bodies, and habitat will take you around 1-6 hours. Keep an eye out for young stars, breastfeeding mothers, and other notables, and photograph them whenever possible. After a one-hour encounter with the gorillas, you'll return to the resort for lunch and refreshments before retiring to your room later that evening after dinner.

Day3: End of safari

Start your day with a hearty breakfast at the resort, then check out for a transfer to Kigali, one of Africa's cleanest towns. After arriving in Kigali, you will have an early lunch before touring the city, including the national museum, genocide memorial sites, and the site where over 25000 people who were slaughtered during the Hutu and Tutsi rebellion and were buried and are remembered. After that, you can buy some souvenirs in local markets before heading to the airport for your journey.
