Meals Included: Breakfast and lunch
Accommodation: Hotel des Mille Collines
 
Day 5: Genocide Memorial and Nyungwe
Spend the morning at the moving Genocide memorial, learning about Rwanda's tragic past and remarkable recovery since. A visit to the genocide memorial is a 'must do' for anyone travelling through Rwanda. In the Afternoon you will transfer to Nyungwe Forest national park, Africa's largest mountainous forest, where you will check in and enjoy the incredible view from your lodge.
 
Meals Included: Breakfast and dinner
Accommodation: Nyungwe Top View Hill Hotel
 
Day 6: 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 7: 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.

Accommodation: Cormoran Lodge
 
Day 8: Volcanoes NP

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.
