Tour Itinerary of 7 days gorillas in rwanda and masai mara ‘big five’

Day 1: Arrival

Arrival at Kigali Airport where you will be welcomed by a company representative to embark on your 8 days Gorillas in Rwanda and the Masai Mara.  Overnight at the  Kigali Serena Hotel  (-)

Day 2: Kigali to Volcanoes National Park – Nature walk

After breakfast, head out to Volcanoes National Park arriving in time for lunch and relaxation. Later in the evening, head out for a nature walk to Lake Burera and Lake Ruhondo, the crater lakes that are situated just outside the national park. You will enjoy fabulous views and scenery of the Volcanoes Mountains and the lakes.  Dinner and overnight at Mountain Gorilla View Lodge (B-L-D)

Day 3: Gorilla Trekking 

Arise early today and prepare for the highlight of your safari, an unforgettable encounter with the gentle giants of Bwindi!  Following breakfast, transfer to the national park offices where you will be allocated a gorilla family in groups of 8 as well as a gorilla tracking guide.

After a pre-tracking briefing by your guide touching on the gorillas generally, your assigned gorilla family as well as appropriate safety precautions, you drive to the trailhead for the start of a thrilling adventure – participants can expect to walk long distances in steep and sometimes muddy conditions with rain overhead, which can be challenging, however the thrill of coming face to face with a giant Mountain Gorilla silverback far more than makes up for the effort in their quest. Granted the time taken can be quite unpredictable taking anything from 2 to 8 hrs or longer. 

You will have packed lunch from the lodge for this hike. Upon sighting the gorillas, you spend the allowed one hour with them as they go about their daily life; feeding, moving, playing, raising their young and sometimes wrestling by the juveniles – it is a totally unique and unforgettable experience!  This will definitely be one of the highlights of your Gorillas in Rwanda and Masai Mara safari.
