Detailed Itinerary


Day 1: Pick up, Kigali city tour and transfer to Volcanoes

A driver from adventure in the wild safaris will pick you from the airport or the hotel early morning. He will give you a tour briefing and then go for tour around Kigali’s city centre. The Kigali Genocide Memorial Centre, the former presidential palace, the city markets, and the craft stores are all included in the city tour of Kigali. After lunch, you’ll travel to the Volcanoes National Park.
You will then go for a tour of the Iby’iwacu Cultural Centre in Volcanoes National Park. The most popular cultural destination in Rwanda is the Iby’iwacu Cultural Village. To display their cultural legacy through dance, theatre, and storytelling, all of Rwanda’s tribes have gathered. You may discover everything to know about Rwanda’s people and culture here.

Day 2: Gorilla tracking in Volcanoes and visiting the twin lakes

Eat a substantial meal early in the morning, and then your driving guide will transport you to the park’s headquarters for beefing. Start your exciting journey of tracking gorillas later. The trek takes 1 to 6 hours, and trekkers are allowed to spend 1 hour with the gorillas. It is incredibly enjoyable to watch them play, protect one another, and feed, among other things. Hikers will be able to see additional wildlife while trekking, such as golden monkeys, elephants, and birds.
Return to the Lodge for lunch and relaxation. Late afternoon you can visit the twin lakes of Ruhondo and Burera and enjoy the breathtaking scenery. Retire for dinner and overnight.
