Most people visit Uganda solely to see gorillas, but on this safari you'll see that the country is actually one of Africa's top all round natural history destinations. In addition to primates you will see a fantastic variety of mammals and birds. You will explore remote places where Giraffes lurk, Elephants roam and Primates swing through the treetops of tropical rainforests.

Itinerary:
Day 1: Arrival/Volcanoes National Park.

Arrive at the Kigali airport, meet and greet, then a two-hour drive to Kiningi via Ruhengeri. The journey north goes through the beautiful terraced hillsides that characterize much of Rwanda’s landscape, gradually climbing to the base of the awesome Virunga volcanoes, sometimes with as many as five peaks visible. Dinner and overnight at the Mountain Gorilla View lodge. Includes: (D).

Day 2: Volcanoes National Park.

This morning after an early morning breakfast you take a short drive to the Park Headquarters and meet with the local guides and trackers who will give a talk on the etiquette of gorilla trekking. Tracking Gorillas through the lush forested slopes of the Virungas is a magical experience. The trek can last from 1 to 6 hours. The terrain is rough and at times muddy. Although the hike is physically demanding, the beauty of the forest and the surrounding scenery make the trekking worthwhile. Picnic lunches are provided and it is important to take plenty of water. Cameras and plenty of fast speed film is recommended. It can rain at a few minutes notice; hence waterproof clothing is a good essential including zip lock bags for cameras and film. NB: We can not guarantee seeing gorillas. Includes:

Day 3: Volcanoes National Park.

Second gorilla tracking day. After your trek, return to Kigali. Dinner and overnight at the Umubano hotel. Includes: (B), (L), (D).
