5 Days Rwanda Gorilla Trekking & Akagera National Park

This is an adventure that combines mountain gorilla trekking and seeing the Big Five in Akagera National Park. You will stay in the two best semi-lodges located in the southern part of the park and another one located in the northern part of the park from where you’ll be able to explore the Kirar.

Day 1: Kigali – Volcanoes National Park

Day 2: 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 for dinner and overnight stay.
