Day 1: Arrive in Kigali
You will be met by your guide at the airport, briefed about your upcoming safari then transferred to your 5* Hotel, which was the setting for the 2004 Hollywood film "Hotel Rwanda", where you will enjoy one of their panoramic view rooms. There are plenty of great places to eat in Kigali and your guide can recommend somewhere for you upon your arrival.
Meals Included: None
Accommodation: Hotel des Mille Collines
Day 2: City Tour and Nyungwe
After breakfast at your hotel, you will check out and go on a city tour, visiting the genocide memorial which is a 'must-do' for any trip to Rwanda. There you will learn about the tragic history of this beautiful country and also get to see how the country has recovered since, which with the help of international aid has been remarkable. After grabbing your early lunch at one of the many restaurants you have to choose from, you will drive south for around 4-5 hours to one of the most deserted parts of Rwanda, Nyungwe Forest National Park.
Meals Included: Breakfast and dinner
Accommodation: Nyungwe Top View Hill Hotel
Day 3: Chimp Tracking or Canopy Walk
Today you have the option of whether you would like to track mans closest relative, the Chimpanzee or go on a canopy walk to make the most of the spectacular views. The Chimpanzee tracking can be extremely strenuous, ascending and descending hundreds of meters in search of the Chimps, so this is the option we recommend for the extremely fit of you. The canopy walk is much more relaxed and you get the fabulous experience of being among the tree tops whilst taking in the breathtaking views, so this is the option we recommend for those looking for a more laid back time. It is possible to do both, so speak to our regional experts for more information.
Meals Included: Breakfast, lunch and dinner
Accommodation: Nyungwe Top View Hill Hotel
Day 4: Lake Kivu
Today you will transfer to lake Kivu, to what is the prettiest town on the lake's shores, Kibuye. This is the perfect place to relax after a strenuous hike in Nyungwe and take in your beautiful surroundings. If you'd prefer to stay on the beach then it is possible to drive further north to Gisenyi, though prices may vary depending on your accommodation choices, ask your regional expert for more information.
Meals Included: Breakfast
Accommodation: Cormoran Lodge
Day 5: Volcanoes NP
After your lazy morning relaxing at lake Kivu, you will take the scenic drive north along the shores of Lake Kivu and then through the Kigezi Highlands to Volcanoes NP, where you will check in at your lodge at the base of the extinct volcano, Mount Karisimbi.
Meals Included: Breakfast and dinner
Accommodation: Mountain Gorilla View Lodge
Day 6: Gorilla Tracking
After an early breakfast you will set off on the unforgettable experience that is Mountain Gorilla tracking. After trekking through the dense forest to where the Gorillas were found the day before, you begin your tracking, searching for the largest primate in the world. Upon sighting them, you will stay with them for one hour as they eat, rest and bond with their young. To reach them it can take anywhere between 30 mins to 4 hours, so be prepared for a long trek through the humid rain-forest. Afterwards, you will spend the afternoon relaxing and taking in your beautiful surroundings.
Meals Included: Breakfast, lunch and dinner
Accommodation: Mountain Gorilla View Lodge
Day 7: Back to Kigali
Today you will transfer back to Kigali to catch your flight home.
