Day 2 - Volcanoes National park and Kigali
After an early breakfast, it’s a 15-minute drive to the park headquarters for registration and a briefing by your guide ready for the trek. Depending on where the gorillas are located, the trek can last between two to six hours. Moving through the dense vegetation, keep an eye out for other wildlife including golden monkey, duiker, buffalo, spotted hyena and numerous bird species.
Once the gorillas are found, your group will spend about an hour with these fascinating primates, before heading back to the lodge for lunch. In the afternoon head back to Kigali for an overnight stay in the Rwandan capital.
