Tour Itinerary

Day 1: Volcanoes National Park

In the afternoon enjoy a shared boat cruise on the Twin Lakes of Burera and Ruhondo.

**Please note it is recommended to depart from Kigali early morning to allow sufficient time for activities and transfers. Accommodation in Kigali can be arranged at additional cost.

Day 2: Bwindi Impenetrable Forest

In the morning you will be transferred to the trekking HQ where you trek the golden monkeys. They are a delight to watch as they spring from tree to tree with their bright bushy tails!

Transfer to the Cyanika border, where you enter Uganda and head to your lodge in Bwindi National Park.

Overnight: Nkuringo Bwindi Gorilla Lodge (Full Board – Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner)

 

Day 3: Bwindi Impenetrable Forest
