Our Driver Guide will pick you from your hotel by 4:30 am early morning to set off for Kinigi where the volcanoes national park offices are located. The drive is approximately 2-3 hours through a beautiful mountainous countryside which will confirm to you why Rwanda is referred to as “The Land of a thousand hills”.
You will arrive at the Kinigi offices by 7:00 am in time for the usual briefing from the park guide on the rules and procedures to be followed while watching mountain gorillas. Once you are done with the briefing, will drive to the starting point then proceed with the park guide to trek the gorilla family. Once you spot the gorillas, follow instructions from the guides. Watching mountain gorillas is breathtaking. You could spend hours just watching the little ones roll around and play – Unfortunately, you will only have one hour with these mighty apes. Mountain Gorillas are very playful and curious and will often come close to you. Once again, while with the gorillas, listen to instructions from your guide and always stay calm. Never make sudden movements.
After gorilla trekking, you will descend the forest and head back to Kigali reaching late in the evening to drop you back at the hotel or to the airport to catch up with your flight.
