2 night’s gorilla safari

Day 1 Arrive Kigali airport and drive to Gisozi Genocide Memorial, a memorial to the million people killed in 1994 genocide in Rwanda. Proceed to Novotel Hotel for a buffet lunch then drive to Gorilla Mountain View Lodge.

Day 2 Early breakfast, drive to the park headquarters for the gorilla trekking. Walking formalities and briefing.  Drive a short distance to the forest edge where you start trekking. Walking is steep but not very strenuous. Nothing can prepare you for the impact of encountering a full grown silverback gorilla, up to three time the size of a bulky man yet remarkably peaceful and tolerant of human visitors.  No words to describe the hour you will spend with the giants who share 97% of our genes. Return to the lodge for lunch before driving back to Kigali arriving in the evening. Overnight at Kigali Serena or Lemigo Hotel (BB)

Day 3 After breakfast depart for the airport for your flight back home.
