In the space of just two days there is a great tour option available to you if you are interested in African wildlife. A great way to end a longer tour of Africa, or a great way to extend you trip, this two day visit will undoubtedly leave you wanting more!
Tracking gorillas in their natural habitat requires a permit and this is included in the price of this two day tour. The price is also inclusive of the driver, tour guide, and transport for your car whilst on safari. In addition to this, the price also covers your accommodation for the night at a quaint hotel or guest house.
Upon arrival at the airport, you will be met by your guide who will take you to the Volcanoes National Park aka ‘Parc National Des Volcans’ which is located in the north-western region of Rwanda and known for its volcanic terrain and its famous mountain gorillas.
Highlights of the second day will include a morning dedicated to the region’s legendary primates. After breakfast, you will trek through the forests towards the border of the Virunga mountain range in the Volcanoes National Park to seek out one of the only remaining mountain gorilla families in the world (mountain gorillas are the most endangered species of all gorillas). The park was the first of its kind in Africa and was created to protect the gorillas back in the 1920s.
In the afternoon you will travel to Kigali to visit the Kigali Genocide memorial centre for an educational yet poignant experience.
The rest of the afternoon can be spent at your leisure – shopping and relaxing before your transfer back to the airport ready for your departure. A short and sweet trip, you’ll be surprised at how much you can fit into just two action packed days!
