Tour Itinerary

Day 1: Kigali

On arrival into Kigali you will be met and transferred to your hotel.

Overnight: Kigali Serena Hotel (Bed and Breakfast)

 

Day 2: Volcanoes National Park

After a morning city tour of Kigali you will be transferred around 2.5hrs to the Volcanoes National Park where you stay for two nights at the super-deluxe eco-lodge, BISATE. The lodge has a wide range of inclusive activities and the managers will discuss options with you on arrival and make a plan for the afternoon.

Bisate Lodge is hailed as the most innovative, responsible, visionary and luxurious lodges in Africa. Bisate’s vision of re-forestation and rehabilitation means that each guest contributes to biodiversity conservation and local community engagement making a far-reaching and positive impact on the mountain gorilla population and communities. If you want to be green without roughing it, this is the place for you!

Day 3: Volcanoes National Park

Enjoy the wildlife encounter of a lifetime as you trek the majestic mountain gorillas.

You will join a group of up to eight people in total as you spend one hour observing the gorillas. It is an extraordinary feeling sitting in the dense rainforest watching these gentle giants. It is amazing to think there are only around 1,000 of these beautiful creatures left but numbers are growing!

After trekking enjoy the inclusive community tours and activities available from Bisate Lodge including the nature trail, tree-planting and guided village walk.
