Upon arrival, you will be transferred to Kinigi for an overnight. The journey goes through beautiful rolling / majestic hills of Rwanda. Dinner and overnight at Da Vince lodge.
Enjoy an early morning breakfast and drive to the park headquarters with packed lunch and water. Attend to a briefing by senior park warden on the ‘Dos’ and ‘Don’ts’ while with gorillas.
Gorilla Trekking through steep and slippery Virunga slopes is so strenuous and takes 2-8 hours depending on gorillas’ movements. At least an hour is allocated to the visitors in the presence of the gorilla group. If on return to the lodge, you still have free time, Iby’iwachu cultural visit is worth a visit. Dinner and overnight stay Da Vince lodge.
Early morning breakfast is followed by a hike to Dian Fossey graveyard situated at the former Karisoke Research Center. This is where Dian spent about 20 years studying the Mountain Gorillas. The trek to the site is quite spectacular, as you pass through thick bamboo forest and afro-montane habitats, with criss-crossed trails of tracks of forest buffalo and elephant! Expect to see all sorts of wildlife on your way up and down to the graves, nestled between the beautiful volcanic peaks of Karismbi and Bisoke. Overnight at Da Vince lodge.
After breakfast transfer to Kigali. Depending on your departure flight, you can go for a city tour with visits to Genocide Menorial sites like Gisozi, Nyamata and Ntarama, lunch in Kigali and later transfer to the Airport where the tour ends.
Epic Uganda drove me to and from lake Bunyonyi, and trust me, I had a lot of fun on this tour despite the fact that I was alone. I was kept engaged with thrilling stories about our destination.
I went to Queen Elizabeth National Park with a group of students from the U.S. We had a great time there. Epic Uganda is the best tour operator. Their guides are really friendly and kind. He showed me around town and gave me the best advice.
My family and I did a successfull gorilla trekking in Bwindi NP. We had a reliable and safe driver on the long and exhausting drive, and he was friendly all the time.
