3 Days Gorilla trekking itinerary
Day 1: Transfer to Volcanoes National Park Rwanda
On arrival, you will be met and greeted warmly by our company guide who will pick you up to the nearest restaurant, have cup of coffee and brief you shortly about the entire trip. Depending on arrival time, undertake Kigali city tour and visit Gisozi genocide museum where you will learn more about Rwanda’s genocide history, visit the craft market, shopping malls, monuments and more. After that, you’ll transfer north wards to Volcanoes national park and check in at your lodge where you will have dinner and overnight stay.
Day 2: Gorilla trekking and Iby’Iwacu Cultural Village walk
After your morning breakfast, head to the park headquarters for briefing and then start an adventurous trek to search for the endangered giants of the jungle; the mountain gorillas. Volcanoes national park is home to over 250 mountain gorillas creating up to 95% chances of travelers in this park to encounter these humble primates of the forest. The walk through the thick jungles on the foothills of Virunga ranges searching for the gorillas is mostly rewarding when you finally encounter these great apes. Spend one full hour with them and learn more about the behaviors and way of life.
After lunch visit the famous Ib’yiwacu cultural village that gathers together all the three ethnic groups of Rwanda in only one stop point. Engage in the traditional dances performed here. A taste of the local cuisine is a guarantee except to those that don’t want.
Day 3: Kigali city tour and departure
As soon as you are done with your breakfast, begin your road transfer back to Kigali. Start a city tour in Kigali. This trip will expose you to Kigali genocide memorial site, craft markets, monuments, shopping malls and other amazing attractions in Kigali town. In the afternoon, having had a delicious and heavy lunch, the driver guide will drop you at Kigali international airport to catch up with your onward flight.
