3- Days/ 2-Nights Lake Kivu and Gorillas

Day 1
Arrival - Kinigi
Meet in the morning on arrival at the airport. Visit the genocide memorial museum. Follow the road as it climbs to the base of the majestic volcanoes, with spectacular views across the five peaks. Depending on arrival time picnic lunch en route or lunch at Muhabura hotel in Ruhengeri. Continue toward Kinigi. NB: If arriving in the afternoon, after meeting at the airport, drive directly to Kinigi. Overnight and dinner at Lodge/ campsite.

Day 2
Mountain Gorillas
As the first light of dawn breaks through the curtain of mist clinging to the summits of Karisimbi, Bisoke, Sabyniyo, Gahinga and Muhabura, we make our way into the Parc National des Volcans. Tracking the gorillas through the unique vegetation can take several hours of challenging walking in wet and muddy conditions. To see a gorilla, the trek will have been worth the hardship. After lunch at Mountain Gorillas Nest, continue toward Gisenyi, a nice small town, located on the northern shore of Lake Kivu. Overnight at Lodge or Campsite.

Day 3
Kivu – Kigali – Departure
Enjoy during the early morning hours the peaceful atmosphere of the calm and pristine waters of Africa’s highest lake. From the terrace of your hotel enjoy the fantastic views over Lake Kivu and its ragged shore. Drive back to Kigali.
