Detailed Itinerary


Day 1: Pick up and travel to Nyungwe Forest

The tour guide from Adventure in the wild safaris will pick you up very early in the morning from your hotel or the airport to begin the arduous trek to Nyungwe forest in Rwanda’s south-west. You should receive a briefing on what to expect and the time range for each activity before starting the journey. The trip gives you the opportunity to take in lovely vistas of the Rwandan countryside. You’ll comprehend why the phrase “A land of a thousand hills” is frequently used to describe Rwanda. You will head straight to the lodge for check-in, refreshments, and leisure as you are in the forest.
Dinner and overnight accommodations will be in the Gisakura Guest House (budget), Nyungwe Forest Lodge (luxury), and Nyungwe Top View Hotel (midrange).

Day 2: Chimpanzee Tracking and canopy walk

You’ll get up early and have breakfast at your hotel before heading to the Nyungwe Forest offices for the chimpanzee tracking briefing. You only need to follow the Guides far into the forest because they know where to find the chimpanzees. Once you’ve located the chimpanzee, make sure you get enough pictures and spend some time observing the animals’ behavior.
After your chimpanzee tracking expedition, return to your accommodation for lunch and get ready to go on the Canopy walk. It enables you to view the park from above and observe more monkeys and birds from a fresh perspective.
Accommodation options, Gisakura Guest House (budget), Nyungwe Forest Lodge (luxury), and Nyungwe Top View Hotel (midrange).

Day 3: Travel to Lake Kivu and have a boat ride in the late afternoon.

After eating breakfast, leave the accommodation and head to Lake Kivu. The bubbling methane gas that escapes from the lake’s bottom has made it famous throughout the world. You’ll have lunch while arriving and enjoying views on the lake. You will be taken on a boat tour to some of the islands in the afternoon. Once the boat ride is over, return to your accommodation and get ready to go swimming in the lake or simply unwind by the lake and take in the stunning surroundings and the daily activities of the locals.
Accommodation options, the Palm Resort Gardens (budget), Paradise Marahide (mid-range), and Lake Kivu Serena hotel (luxury).

Day 4: Tour Lake Kivu and fishing communities and transfer to the National Volcanoes Park

You will get up when you’re ready, eat breakfast, and get ready to be taken on a tour of the various Lake Kivu attractions, including the fishing communities. This is the ideal time of year for bird watchers to see both resident and migratory bird species. The islands and lakeshores are home to a number of primates that dwell in forests. Additionally, you can run with locals by happenstance as they go about their regular lives. You will then depart for Musanze’s Volcanoes National Park.
Dinner and lodging at The Garden Place Hotel (budget), Le Bambou Gorilla Lodge (mid-range), and Mountain Gorilla View Lodge (luxury).

Day 5: Gorilla tracking in Volcanoes and cultural tour

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.
You will be taken to the Iby’iwacu cultural village, which is close to the volcanoes national park, after some relaxation. You will be delighted with cultural dances and get the opportunity to learn more about the native Kinyarwanda culture while at the hamlet. Expect to participate in the performances and have the opportunity to purchase mementos.

Day 6: Golden Monkey Tracking - Visiting Burera and Ruhondo, the twin lakes

Get up early, eat breakfast, and then travel to the Volcanoes National Park offices for a briefing on tracking golden monkeys. Following the briefing, the park guide will take you into the forest, where you’ll finally be able to see the monkeys perched on treetops and foraging on the ground. A rare and threatened species of primates is the golden monkey. They pose for as many shots as they can while looking adorable. You will then return to the park for lunch. After lunch you will start your journey back to Kigali and the driver will drop you at the airport for your flight or at the hotel.
