Kigali - Volcanoes National Park
You will be picked up in Kigali for a city tour before you drive toward Volcanoes National Park. You will visit the Kigali Genocide Memorial after lunch and transfer to Musanze. Check in at the Five Volcanoes Boutique Hotel which is one of the semi-luxury lodges with unique services.
Gorilla tracking in Volcanoes National Park
Rise up very early in the morning and have breakfast. You then proceed to Volcanoes National Park in the Musanze district. Head straight to the park offices for a briefing about the gorillas and the allocation of the gorilla groups and guides.
Continue into the tropical rainforest and search for the mountain gorillas from where they were seen the previous day until you find them. You'll watch them as they go about their daily routine of feeding their young ones, climbing trees, and just relaxing. Take beautiful photographs (remember to switch off your flash). This whole exercise takes a maximum of 1 hour.
Return to the hotel or lodge for lunch. In the afternoon, you will visit the Ellen DeGeneres Campus of the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund. Later, return to the lodge at Five Volcanoes Boutique Hotel.
Musanze - Akagera National Park
This morning after breakfast, your driver guide will pick you up and drive toward Akagera National Park where you'll stay at Ruzizi Tented Lodge. After lunch, you go on a sunset boat ride and a night game drive. Thereafter, return to the lodge for dinner where you'll watch hippos, and for your overnight stay.
Akagera National Park - Full-day game drive
After breakfast, we go on a morning game drive exploring the area in an open 4x4 vehicle. This is an excellent way to view the waterbirds and many other aquatic animals seen around Lake Rwanyakazinga. You then continue to Kirara Plain in the north. After a night game drive, continue to Karenge Bush Camp for your overnight stay.
Akagera and drive back to Kigali
After a late breakfast, you will start packing your luggage and drive back to Kigali. This will be the end of your stay at Akagera National Park for your 5-day tour with Golden Rwanda Safaris as you travel back to Kigali Airport. This marks the end of the trip.
