Tour Itinerary

Day 1: Volcanoes National Park

On arrival into Kigali you will be taken on a private city tour before transferring to the Volcanoes National Park.

Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge is a community-owned luxury lodge. Every guest contributes to the local community and is welcome to get involved with a variety of cultural initiatives. The lodge boasts an incredible volcanoes view and is just minutes from the trekking HQ.

Overnight: Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge (Full Board – Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and Local Drinks)

 

Day 2: Volcanoes National Park

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

You will join a group of up to eight people and 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 1000 of these beautiful creatures left but numbers are growing!

In the afternoon, enjoy a shared boat cruise on the twin lakes Burera and Ruhondo or you can chose from a variety of lodge activities including mountain bike tours or swap the cruise for a guided village / community tour.

Overnight: Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge (Full Board – Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and Local Drinks)
