Travel Itinerary
Day 1: Arrival – Transfer to Musanze,Kigali (D)
  • Arrive at Kigali airport, where you will be welcomed by our English/French speaking guide- short briefing- and transfer to your Hotel in Kigali.

Kigali was founded in 1907 as small colonial outpost by Dr. Richard Kant, the first German colonial resident of Rwanda. The city has made tremendous progress since 1994 genocide. Considered one of the safest and friendliest of African capitals, Kigali is blessed with a moderate high altitude climate. It is inhabited by approximately 1 million people who now enjoy the benefits of peace. You will be pleasantly surprised at how comfortable it feels to be among the gentle people of Rwanda who will be delighted to welcome you to their beautiful, exceptionally friendly country.

Day 2: Kigali – Volcanoes National Park with Gorilla Tracking (B,L,D)
  • After a very earlier breakfast at around 10:30Am, transfer to the Volcanoes National Park.

Today, your gorilla trek is sure to be the highlight of your tour. We head to the Kinigi ranger station by 7am, where we are allocated guides and briefed before heading into the forest. We will track one of the eight habituated Gorilla groups in Rwanda. Habituation of a gorilla group takes a minimum of two years, with daily visits to allow the gorilla group to tolerate human presence. It is only when the gorillas are completely comfortable with human presence that tourists are allowed to share the daily hour of contact with them.

Day 3: Volcanoes National Park with Golden Monkey track (B,L,D)
  • After a morning breakfast you will go trekking the Golden Monkey in the volcano national park or do the Dian Forsey Tomb.

Trekking to see the golden monkeys is another highlight of Volcanoes National Park. The Golden Monkey (Cercopithecus Mitis Kandti) is a local subspecies of the widespread Sykes Monkey, also known as the “Blue Monkey” and is endemic to the high altitude forests of the Volcanoes National Park area. The monkeys are playful and inquisitive and often spend their time leaping from bamboo branches or frolicking on the forest floor.

There are two habituated groups of Golden Monkey, one group comprises around 80 – 100 members and has its home at the foot of Mt Sabyinyo. As with treks to see the Mountain Gorillas, treks to see the Golden Monkeys take place in the mornings and visitors are permitted to stay for 1 hour with the monkeys.
