Day 1: Arrival and Transfer Volcanoes National Park
Shortly after breakfast on this first day of your 4 Days Volcanoes Double Gorilla Trekking safari, you will embark on your adventurous journey to the home of mountain gorillas in Rwanda, Volcanoes National Park in a 4×4 safari vehicle driven by our respective safari guide en-route the beautiful a thousand hills and mountains of Rwanda, with short visits to some sites like the genocide memorial monument that carry strong memories of a past violent Rwanda.
Upon reaching our place of stay in Volcanoes, we shall drop our belongings and go for a short community walk as we have sights of the creativity in various community projects then later on return to our lodge and prepare for mountain gorilla trekking the following day.
Day 2: First Gorilla Trekking
This is the one of the days in your 4 Days Volcanoes Double Gorilla Trekking package that we trek gorillas in the mist. We shall have heavy breakfast in the morning because the trek is quite challenging then thereafter proceed for a 30 minutes pre-briefing meeting that will instill us with knowledge, precautions and safety tips whilst tracking gorillas. After this meeting, we shall then be allocated into groups as we make our way into the jungle to go visit Rwanda’ mountain gorillas.
We shall meet our long time gorilla cousins and spend a maximum of an hour with them upon locating them. After this amazing experience, we shall then return to the park offices in Kinigi for your respective gorilla trekking certificates of the particular gorilla family you tracked and then later return to our lodge for dinner and overnight.
Day 3: Second Gorilla Trekking
The second gorilla trek of your 4 Days Volcanoes Double Gorilla Trekking tour is the perfect opportunity for you to do whatever you didn’t do in the first one. After a heavy breakfast meal, you will again return to the headquarters as the previous day for another set of instructions regarding your next trek. Please note that the information changes with the kind of gorilla families you are going to trek though majority of it remains standard. We shall then make our second journey into the Volcanoes wilderness looking for our second family of mountain gorillas.
If you felt you took less photos or your camera blacked out during the first trek then this is the time to correct all that. Take as much photographs and video recordings as you can but avoid keeping your flashlight on because it frightens and annoys the gorillas. After the second trek, we shall again return to our starting point and proceed to the park’s headquarters for our respective gorilla tracking certificates for the gorilla family we just tracked then proceed to our place of accommodation for dinner and overnight.
Day 4: Volcanoes NP – Kigali / Departure
After breakfast on this last day of your Rwanda travel holiday, we shall immediately drive off to Kigali for a much broader city excursion and have time to visit several craft shops for souvenirs, the Gisozi Genocide Memorial monument, do last minute shopping, visit the great Hotel Rwanda and later on proceed to the airport as you wait for your scheduled return flight.
