Day 1
Kigali
Arrive in Kigali and settle in your luxury hotel, where a welcome dinner awaits.
Day 2
Nyungwe Forest Reserve
Head out to Nyungwe Forest Reserve, and on the way visit King's palace and Butare National Museum, to gain detailed insight into Rwandan cultural and political history. Stop for lunch and proceed to check-in at an all-inclusive, luxury resort, nestled among mountains, surrounded by an ancient rain-forest.
Day 3
Nyungwe Forest Reserve
Let the early morning breeze boost your energy levels, and head off to take a hike into Nyungwe Forest in search of chimpanzees. On the way, you will come across various other primate species plus lots of forest dwelling birds. Take a lunch break at the lodge, and off you go again for an amazing canopy walk. Late in the evening, it's time for dinner and relaxing in the serene African nature, or at the resort spa.
Day 4
Gisenyi
Immerse yourself in the rain-forest in search of Colobus Monkeys. Once you spot one, be ready to experience playful interaction with this black-and-white unsual primate, as they are very social in nature. After lunch, drive to Kibuye on the shores of Lake Kivu. A wild roller-coaster road that tumbles through lush plantain fields and relic patches of misty rainforest offers sweeping views over the blue waters, with the nearby Virunga volcanoes as a spectacular backdrop. Arrive in Gisenyi and check-in your luxury lodge for dinner and overnight.
Day 5
Ruhengeri
Spend a leisurely morning and enjoy lunch on the way of a scenic drive to Ruhengeri, that brings you to the base for Gorilla trekking at the Volcanoes National Park.

Take the day off to explore the town, recharge, rest and get ready for the next days to come!
Day 6
Ruhengeri
Time for decision-making: You may opt for a once-in-a-lifetime, personal encounter with the rare and majestic mountain gorilla; limited number of permits are issued daily, to allow for breathtaking encounters with free-roaming gorillas, in their natural habitat. Head off to the Volcanoes National Park in search of the famous awe-inspiring huge primate. Return to the lodge for a relaxing lunch, dinner and retreat. Alternatively, you may spend the day at leisure, at the resort spa.
Day 7
Kigali
Experience the magic of the African jungle in the morning mist. Οpt for an early-morning rising, for one last trek during this fascinating journey, or choose to stay at the hotel for a refreshing spa. Lunch at the lodge awaits before you head back to Kigali.
