DETAILED ITINERARY

Day 01 Arrival in Kigali

Arrival in Kigali
Kigali
Nil

Arriving into Kigali, we drive about 20mins to the city and check into your hotel.

If time permits, enjoy a tour of Kigali. A relatively young city, Kigali is low key yet dynamic and progressive and no visit to Rwanda would be complete without a visit to the Kigali Genocide Memorial to learn about her sombre past.

Day 02 Kigali / Akagera NP

Akagera
Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner included

Begin your day very early in the morning with a 3h30mins shuttle transfer to Akagera NP gate followed by an hour game drive transfer to arrive at your lodge. 

Stretching across a vast expanse of low-lying mountains and some of the most scenic savannah in East Africa, Akagera is teeming with plain games and is home to one of Africa’s highest hippo densities, some very large crocodiles and more than 520 bird species. After settling into your tent and enjoyed a sumptuous lunch, follow your expert guide for your afternoon game drive which extends into an exhilarating night drive, offering the opportunity to observe the nocturnal animals.

Day 03 Akagera NP

We continue by road for about 3 hours to arrive at Volcanoes NP – your final stop on this trip. The Volcanoes NP is best known as a sanctuary for the mountain gorillas. Visitors flock here to experience a face to face encounter with these intriguing creatures. The park is set high on the jungle-covered slopes of the volcanic Virunga Mountains and highly regulated treks through the reserve allow visitors to spend an hour at a time with these incredible primates in their natural habitat.

Trekking through the forest, your experienced trackers will bring you up close to your gorilla family for a sensational hour of observing the great apes in their natural habitat.

We return to your lodge in the afternoon and you have the afternoon at leisure to relax after the unforgettable morning experience or taking part in the activities available at your lodge.
