Overview
Itinerary
Dates & Prices

There is perhaps nothing more memorable than sitting in the presence of a Mountain Gorilla. With less than 700 remaining in the wild, the Mountain Gorilla is one of the most endangered species on earth. While their size may be very intimidating, they are actually quite shy. As you sit with a family of gorillas, their behavior may seem quite familiar! Young gorillas play among themselves like children. Mothers groom their young and the big Silverback watches over the entire family. It is an unforgettable experience.

Day 1  Arrive Kigali
On arrival in Kigali today, you will be met and transferred to your hotel in Kigal for the night.

Kigali Serena Hotel

Ideally located on one of Kigali's most charming boulevards, the five-star Kigali Serena Hotel is built around a polished granite atrium, which showcases the very best of Rwandese cultural art.

Relaxed yet elegant, the hotel features an Executive Lounge and Bar, which opens onto a wide sundeck overlooking the newly refurbished swimming pool. Also overlooking the pool, the popular Milima Restaurant offers a wide range of all-day buffet choices, while the relaxed Sokoni Café offers inside and outside poolside seating.

Regarded by many as Kigali’s natural business hub, the hotel also boasts its own extensive conference centre, 500-seater auditorium and lavish ballroom

Day 2  Gorilla Trek in Volcanoes National Park | Meals: BLD
Leave Kigali very early this morning and travel directly to the Volcantional National Park office, where your guides will brief you on your upcoming trek and how to behave when you are in the forest and in the presence of the mountain gorillas. A short drive over bumpy roads takes you to the start of your trek. It will take about 10-20 minutes to walk to through the fields to the edge of the forest. Continue your trek in the forest until you come upon your family of gorillas. For the next hour, as you sit with the gorillas, you will be filled with awe - some say this is the most profound experiences in nature. Your time with the gorillas quickly comes to an end, and you trek back to the start point. Return to the lodge for a late lunch and afternoon at leisure.
