Trek the lush tropical forests of Nyungwe National Park, Volcanoes National Park and the beautiful blue lakes and tall waterfalls of Bulera & Ruhondo, where you will see abundant wildlife! Trekking the gorillas through the light mountain forest on the slopes of the Virunga is a magical experience. This is perhaps one of the most breathtaking wildlife experiences on earth!

RWANDA GORILLA DIRECT! (2 nights/3 days)

Day 1: ARRIVE KIGALI AND TRAVEL TO RUHENGERI

You will be met by a  Gorilla Tour Booking Safaris guide at the Kigali International Airport and stop for lunch in the city before being transferred to the twin lakes of Bulera & Ruhondo. These are beautiful lakes located at the base of volcano Muhabura and close to the border with Uganda. They are surrounded by steep hills and large waterfalls with a backdrop of the Virunga volcanic mountains. These twin lakes are great spots to be visited and used to be referred to as neglected gems, but things have changed and Bulera and Ruhondo are a place not worth missing out on. Their deep blue waters ringed by steep hills and tall waterfalls with the outlines of the nearby Virunga Volcanoes provide a spectacular backdrop. Get to the view point then drive to Ruhengeri area the second largest town in Rwanda, with its stunning backdrop of five volcanic mountains, The Virungas. Arriving for dinner and overnight at your hotel.

Driving distance: 2 hours
Activities: Twin Lakes Visit
Overnight: Home Inn/ Mountain Gorilla Village/ Virunga Lodge
Meal Plan: Full board – lunch, dinner, bed & breakfast


Day 2: GORILLA TRACKING 
After an early breakfast, you will proceed to the National Park headquarters - Kinigi to meet your guides for the day. After completing our park formalities, we will embark on a once in a lifetime experience of tracking mountain gorillas. Once you spot them, you are allowed to spend an hour watching your closest long lost cousin. This is perhaps one of the most breathtaking wildlife experiences on earth!!! You get so close to these awesome giant primates. You stare at each other blankly not knowing who will break the long silence first. Tracking the gorillas through the light mountain forest on the slopes of the Virunga is a magical experience. These massive primates are extremely rare, with less than 700 living today. You will get within meters of the family, and be privileged to spend an hour amongst them. The trekking may be fairly strenuous; up to six hours or longer at a relatively high altitude. We encourage for your own enjoyment, to make sure that you are perfectly fit and healthy. We’ve had people as old as 70 years old do gorilla tracking so this should not be a problem; all you need is to ask your driver guide to request a shorter group for you if cannot you trek far. It is important to bring good hiking boots, long trousers, gloves for protection against stinging nettles, some snacks & sweets (for you, not the gorillas) as well as sufficient water as the rain forest gets hot and humid during the day. You will spend one hour with the gorillas, but it is an hour you will never forget. Return to your hotel for lunch and later dinner and overnight.

Overnight: Home Inn/ Mountain Gorilla Village/ Virunga Lodge
