2 Day Rwanda Gorilla Trek & A Visit to the Genocide Memorials.

At Volcanoes National Park, sometimes referred to as Parc Nationale des Volcans, visitors from all over the world get a once-in-a-lifetime chance to see these vulnerable gentle giants. The wonderous mountain gorillas are only found in this park in Rwanda. It is the park protocol that visitors may only spend an hour with the mountain gorillas. This 2-Day Rwanda Gorilla Trek is a fantastic choice for anyone seeking a less physically demanding gorilla trekking experience in Rwanda than the 1-Day Gorilla Tour.

Driving from Kigali to Volcanoes National Park takes about 2 hours and 30 minutes. This gorilla safari is ideal for people who are already in Rwanda, particularly in Kigali, for a conference or other event, or for those who are flying in early in the morning and leaving late at night.

Kigali Genocide Memorial

In the morning, you will be picked up from your hotel or the airport and driven to Kigali, the capital of Rwanda. During your trip, you will stop by the Genocide Memorial Center and the local market. As you travel to Ruhengeri from Kigali after lunch, you’ll pass through Rwanda’s agricultural heartland and begin to see why the nation is nicknamed the “Land of a Thousand Hills.” Musanze, the capital of Ruhengeri, is the gateway to Volcanoes National Park, home to half of the world’s mountain gorillas. Your first stop in Musanze will be at a lodge, where you can have dinner and spend the night.

Overnight: Five Volcanoes Boutique Hotel/ Davinci Gorilla Lodge.

Day 2: Gorilla Trekking in Volcanoes National Park and Transfer to Kigali.

Before you leave the lodge for a gorilla trekking excursion, you’ll need to grab water, a jacket, a camera, and, of course, lunch. Your driver will drop you off at the park headquarters at 7 a.m. to start your day of trekking in the national park. There, you will register and get an orientation on the many gorilla tribes that are present. Your guide will help you choose the gorilla family that most closely fits your demands during your briefing. Once you and your hiking guide have received a briefing, the driver will take you to the trailhead in the forest. Walking to see the gorillas allows you to soak in the scenery and hear the sounds of the rain-forest. When you’ve had your hour with the gorillas, it’s time to depart the park. Arriving outside, your driver will be prepared to take you back to Kigali.
