Gorilla Weekend Rwanda

Gorilla Weekend Rwanda

This short-break gorilla safari will see you spend three nights at the luxurious Virunga Lodge, as you explore Rwanda's Volcanoes National Park in search of the endangered mountain gorilla. The 4-day itinerary can be booked as a standalone programme or as an add-on to a longer East African safari. You can also extend your stay in Rwanda to include Lake Kivu and/or Akagera National Park.

Outline Itinerary

  1. Day 1: Arrive Kigali

    You will be met on arrival into Kigali and transferred to a local restaurant for lunch and a briefing from your guide.

  2. Day 2: Gorilla tracking

    Today is spent gorilla tracking in Volcanoes National Park. Tracking the gorillas through the densely forested mountains of the Virungas is a magical experience.

You can spend another morning with the gorillas (on payment of an additional permit at the time of booking), or alternatively, you might like to spend the morning tracking the golden monkeys, another rare and elusive primate that has made a home for itself in the Virunga Mountains.
