Tour Itinerary:

Day 1: Arrival and City tour. Arrive at Kanombe (Kigali) airport. Meet and greet before taking the 30 minute drive to Kigali City. Time permitting, go for a tour of the city (optional). This includes a visit to a genocide memorial. Traditional crafts can be bought. To most visitors the city tour of Kigali and the genocide sites can be an emotional event. O/N: Hotel Chez Lando or Mille Collines Hotel (BB).

Day 2: Kigali to Kisoro boarder town in Uganda. Transfer to Kisoro in Uganda, a journey that takes four hours. First, is the three hours journey North of Kigali to Kinigi through Ruhengeri and on to the Cyanika boarder. Enjoy the rolling hills for which Rwanda is well known. Finalise boarder arrangements and cross into Uganda. Either guided nature walk in Gahinga or climb a volcano, visit the natural, beautiful-looking Lake Mutanda, surrounded by the volcanoes, take a walk on the shores. Lunch in Kisoro. O/N: Travelers Rest Hotel (FB).

Day 3: Gorilla tracking in Congo. Transfer to the Bunagana boarder with Congo, from there drive to the Park Headquarters to be briefed about gorilla etiquette before setting off into the forest to track gorillas in Parc National des Virunga of Congo. Gorilla tracking through the forest, hills and swamps can be tough, arduous and tiring, sometimes taking up to 8 hours in the forest. But coming face to face with the great primates is well worth the effort. Return to Uganda in the afternoon. Dinner and overnight at Travelers Rest Hotel (FB).

Day 4: Back to Rwanda and fly out. Leave for Kigali in Rwanda. After breakfast, transfer to Kigali. On your way to Kigali, several stops will be made to admire the scenery. Rwanda is the country with over thousand hills! Transfer to the airport for your flight. Approximate driving time: 4 hours.
