Day 2: Kigali to Volcanoes

 

This morning after breakfast, you will have a city tour which will include a visit to Genocide Memorial Centre to learn about the lessons learned so this tragedy never happens again. As an outsider, it is almost impossible to understand the true scope of what really happened here in 1994. Your visit to the center will help bring some of the tragedy to light as you learn about individual stories of losing family and friends while at the same time learning about the efforts of Rwandans to heal and carry on as one people.

Afterwards, depart for Volcanoes National Park. The roads are good and the journey to Ruhengeri will take approximately two hours. On arrival, a late lunch will be served at the accommodation, with its scenic vistas of the Virunga Volcanoes (Parc National des Volcans). 

Included meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Approximate driving time: 2 1/2 hours

 

Day 3: Volcanoes National Park

You will then be taken by vehicle to a starting point for tracking one of the habituated Mountain Gorilla families. The amount of time spent walking is dependant upon which family of gorillas you are allocated to and where they are to be found on that day. Once the family is sighted you will spend a maximum of one hour with the gorilla family. After this phenomenal wildlife experience, return to your vehicle on the edge of the forest, returning to your accommodation for lunch. Afternoon at leisure.
