We will pick you up upon arrival in Kigali, Rwanda, and drive you to Kinigi, located in the foothills of the Virunga Mountains located in Parc National des Volcans.

Hotel
Experience a once-in-a lifetime wildlife encounter with the wild mountain gorillas of Rwanda. After an early breakfast, drive to Parc National des Volcans's headquarters where you’ll meet your guide who will brief you about your trek and the various aspects of ‘gorilla etiquette’. Start your journey deep into the forest in search of your allocated gorilla family.

High altitude, steep, slippery trails and humidity can make the trek challenging. But it’s definitely worth the effort to spend time with wild mountain gorillas in their natural habitat.

If you’re visiting at the right time of the year you will get the chance to witness one of the greatest wildlife spectacles on earth – the Great Migration – when over 2.5 million wildebeests migrate north from Serengeti National Park to Maasai Mara during an annual migration cycle driven by rain.
