What To Expect:
Rwanda Travel Tour Highlights
Arrive in Kigali and dive into the “Country of a Thousand Hills.” After an overnight stay in the area, take the morning to tour the Kigali Memorial, a tribute nearly one million people that lost their lives in the genocide. In the afternoon you will head to Parc National des Volcans, home to Bisoke Volcano—where Dian Fossey created her legacy. From here you will set out on a day of trekking in Virunga National Park in search of the rare mountain gorilla. Some physical fitness is required and it usually takes a few hours to reach the gorillas, but this exclusive experience is truly a one-of-a-kind adventure. The following day is at leisure and you have the option to track Golden Monkeys if you would like. Depart Virunga for Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and settle into an eco-lodge for another three nights. Here you will have a number of options to choose from including an additional gorilla trek, a guided rainforest walk, a bird watching tour, or a cultural immersion into the traditions of the Batwa Pygmies. A visit with the renowned founder of Conservation Through Public Health, Dr. Gladys Kalema-Zikusoka, is also highly recommended and will give you fantastic insight into the lives and issues facing this critically endangered primate.
