Gorilla Tracking Rwanda

3 Days

Why this itinerary?

A chance to look into the eyes of our closest relatives in the heart of Africa. With very restricted and controlled access these tours should be booked well in advance and with high permit fees this is an expensive add on to an East African safari, but as one guest put it: “It is worth it”.

Description

This trip can be booked to start in either Kenya or Tanzania. We recommend arriving into Nairobi, taking the schedule flight to Kigali, completing the tour and then continuing on to either Kenya OR Tanzania for other great adventures.

Highlights

Gorillas! Also Rwanda is one of the cleanest and most hospitable countries in Africa. As a short addition to a once in a lifetime trip to Africa we strongly recommend this trip!

In Detail
(note all bookings include an in depth information pack)

DAY 1
ARRIVAL KIGALI


On arrival at Kigali Airport you are met and are taken on a city tour of Kigali with a picnic lunch before departing north to Rehengeri. In the late afternoon you arrive and relax at your lodge. Overnight Mountain Gorilla Nest (picnic lunch – dinner).

DAY 2
GORILLA TRACKING

Breakfast is taken early to enable you to arrive at the park offices at 7am where you are allocated to a gorilla group. The trackers guides then give a briefing on the rules and regulations and codes of conduct before setting off once again in a vehicle to the trail heads. You then set off to track the gorilla which depends heavily upon which group you are tracking and where they are and can be very exertive. Once located you then have only 1 hour to spend with them but possibly one of the most extraordinary hours of your life. After your time with the Gorillas you return to the trail head and you are transffered back for lunch at the lodge. In the afternoon you drive back to Kigali and have dinner at a local restaurant. Overnight Kigali Serena (breakfast – lunch – dinner at own expense)

DAY 3
DEPART
